MTU Series 60
Just as Roger Penske bought Detroit Diesel from General Motors, the Series 60 was introduced to the market. Under Penske’s command, Detroit Diesel’s over-the-road market share went from 3% to over 30% on the back of the Series 60. Now with the merger of MTU and Detroit Diesel, the marinized Series 60 is being marketed to the marine industry as the MTU Series 60. With a turbocharger, supercharger and large injectors the company is rating its high-horsepower model at over 800 hp at 2300 rpm. Other marine versions are available under 500-hp from the same block.
