The standard for the VNL


Regardless of whether the trailer is fully or partially loaded, an aerodynamic VNL can provide substantial savings. Now standard, our next generation Turbo Compound is 6% more fuel efficient than our current 2020 D13 engine. And it’s up to 11% more efficient when compared to 2015 truck models.

The new D13 with Turbo Compounding captures and harnesses energy typically lost through the exhaust to recover lost horsepower and improve fuel economy.

Discover the Savings

Simple Design

The simplest turbocharger design is one whose turbine geometry are fixed. With fewer moving parts there is less chance for mechanical failure. Which is why the D13TC simple design makes it the most reliable engine we've ever built.

Last Longer

The D13TC delivers extra horsepower while operating at lower RPM, so there’s less strain on the engine. The fixed geometry turbo is designed to meet the 1.2 million mile B50 life of the engine, with no extra maintenance required.

Shifting Forward

By combining the next generation of I-Shift with the D13TC, you get application-specific solutions that exceed expectations for fuel efficiency, performance and driver productivity.
