Functions of the Detroit DD15

The DD15 offers a smoother ride and extended maintenance intervals for users. With a breakthrough innovation system the Detroit DD15 delivers a 90% peak torque in 1.5 seconds. It offers a non-wastegated and non-variable turbocharger with dual overhead camshafts. They are quieter Diesel Engines with reduced vibration. The turbocharger has been streamlined which makes this engine lighter and more reliable. A variable-speed water pump controls the pump flow, which uses a clutch to reduce impeller speeds, which in turn makes it more efficient than geardriven designs. This improves the fuel economy as well. The fuel filter module uses a two-filter system. This allows for longer service change intervals.
