Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz truck engines win JD Power award

REDFORD, Mich. – Daimler Trucks North America’s Mercedes-Benz engines have received the award for "Highest in Customer Satisfaction among Vocational Heavy-Duty Truck Engines."

The award is determined by the J.D. Power and Associates 2009 Heavy Duty Truck Engine and Transmission Study, which is based on interviews with 2,421 owner-operators and fleet managers of heavy duty trucks.

"Considering the engines included in this survey are entirely comprised of our legacy models, like the MBE4000, we feel that our customers can expect even better performance and support from our new lineup of engines — the DD13, DD15, and soon to be launched DD16," says Amanda Phillips, manager, product marketing for Detroit Diesel who distributes Mercedes-Benz engines in the U.S.

The engines share a common platform design that is leveraged on a global scale by Daimler Trucks.

Detroit Diesel has been certified by the EPA as meeting 2010 emissions targets with BlueTec emissions technology.
