One Millionth Detroit HDEP Produced

By Mike Osenga15 June 2018

As Detroit observes its 80th anniversary this year, parent company Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is marking another important achievement – the production of its one millionth heavy-duty engine platform (HDEP) engine. The one millionth HDEP engine is a shared milestone between Detroit’s Redford, Mich.-based manufacturing facility and Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz plant in Mannheim, Germany.

Introduced in 2007, HDEP was jointly developed in Germany, Japan and the United States. The first HDEP engine launched in North America was the Detroit DD15 engine. The Detroit DD13 and Detroit DD16 engines were later introduced to meet the demands of other heavy-duty applications.
