Daimler trucks lineup gets EPA’s certification
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has certified Daimler Trucks North America’s 2013 lineup as being fully compliant with the new greenhouse gas 2014 (GHG14) regulations. Under the new GHG14 regulations, trucks and buses built in 2014 through 2018 are projected to reduce oil consumption by 530 million barrels and greenhouse gas emissions by 270 million metric tons.
The GHG14 is the first program designed to reduce the fuel consumption and truck emissions from the American highways and was initiated by the Department of Transportation’s Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA).
The most fuel efficient model in Daimler’s certified lineup is the Freightliner Cascadia which features a host of clean technologies that includes Blue Tec emissions technologies and the efficient DD Engines.
Another example of Daimler Truck’s powertrain optimization strategy is the Detroit DD engine line-up that utilizes Daimler Trucks’ best-in-class global processes for powertrain engineering and development. The portfolio includes the Detroit DD13®, DD15® and DD16® engines all equipped with BlueTec® emissions technology, Daimler’s global SCR technology.
