Penske restocks Detroit Series 60 Legacy engine

Penske Power Systems and Daimler Trucks North America have recommissioned the engine for sale in Australia and New Zealand


Engine distributer Penske Power Systems has revived the 14-litre Detroit Series 60 Legacy engine, adding a limited number of the US-manufactured engines to its Australian and New Zealand sales line-up.

Backed by a two-year, unlimited kilometre warranty, the 575hp engines are available after Penske Power Systems and Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) recommissioned production of the Series 60 engine in a DTNA factory in Utah.

While the 14-litre Detroit Series 60 Legacy engine has a much shorter history, the Series 60 range from Detroit Diesel were first sold 30 years ago and have featured in a range of on-highway truck models.

Penske Power Systems’ on-highway director Kevin Dennis says the company listened to customer calls for the engine’s re-introduction.

"More than ever we deliver an extensive range of technologies to our customers, from the DD15 engine on the one hand, to the legendary Series 60 on the other," Dennis says.

"So when our customers asked for the Series 60 Legacy to be re-introduced as part of our product mix, we worked hard to make it happen."

The Series 60 Legacy is available for purchase as a loose engine from the company’s branches and authorised dealerships.
