Mercedes-Benz Diesel Engines


Mercedes-Benz is a division of Daimler-Benz, as is Freightliner. The Mercedes engine first started appearing in the Freightliner RV chassis in the 2006 model year. These engines will be serviced by Detroit Diesel, also a division of Daimler. The engine that is beginning to hit the markets in the 2007 model year is the MBE 926. This engine is being targeted at the Caterpillar C7 series market segment. At 7.2 liters, the MBE 926 is similar in displacement to the C7 but produces 1,000 ft-lbs of torque compared to 860 for the C7. The MBE 926 puts out 330 HP at 2,200 RPM, which is 20 HP less than the 350 HP Cat C7, but it comes in at a lower RPM and builds much faster than the Cat. The following links will give you specification sheets and warranty guides for the MBE 926. The ratings will undoubtedly change when the new emission specs take effect in the 2008 model year. As more information is released we'll add it as available.
