Penske Power Systems  has announced it will be unveiling  the much‐anticipated Detroit Diesel DD16 to the public for the first time at the Brisbane Truck Show next week.

Penske says the DD16, which will soon be available to Australian customers, combines Detroit’s ‘unfaltering reliability with high performance’ and is the most powerful on‐highway engine ever produced by Detroit.

“From the Series 60, to the DD15, to the DD16, visitors to the Brisbane Truck Show will see the evolution of Detroit when they visit the Detroit stand,” said Sean McLean, general manager – on‐highway, Penske Power Systems.

“The DD16 has been built on the well‐proven reliability that Detroit products are known for, while providing additional horsepower for customers who want the extra pulling power.

“And, as with all Detroit products, the DD16 will be backed by our comprehensive national network of dealers along with a renowned warranty package that gives customers peace of mind.”

DJR Team Penske’s Fabian Coulthard, who took his Ford Mustang to victory in the recent first Perth Supercar night race last weekend, will be at the Detroit stand from 12 noon on Saturday May 18 for a meet and greet with show attendees.
