DETROIT, Mich. – Detroit Diesel says, contrary to reports in other media sources, its post-October Series 60 engines will meet the coming emissions standards.
The company says its products and technology have been mischaracterized and it does, in fact, plan to have the Series 60 engine certified through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
“DDC continues to support concerns voiced by its customers, the American Trucking Associations, and others, that the trucking industry, and the economy in general, would be well-served by a longer period of fleet test time,” the company adds in a written statement. “Whether any changes to the October 1 implementation date are forthcoming or not, DDC wants to re-assure its customers of its long-term commitment to them and its near-term commitment to providing certified engines in October 2002.”
The August issue of Truck News contains the Detroit Diesel installment of our ongoing series “In their own words…,” which affords engine makers a chance to clear up the swirling rumors and falsehoods regarding post-October products.
