Cat® C13B Diesel Engine

The Cat® C13B engine supplies remarkable power and torque in a smaller, lighter engine package. With a aftertreatment that is 65% smaller and 54% lighter than its current equivalent and over 34 kW/L of power density, the C13B is designed to allow OEMs to downsize their engine platforms, lower installation costs and maximize uptime by providing long life in the toughest applications.
