Meet the New

John Deere 13.6L Engine

We developed the PowerTech™ 13.6L engine with a clean-sheet design. This means we designed the product from the ground up, leveraging our best technologies in new ways to meet both market and customer demands.

Our product development approach for the 13.6L resulted in an engine that delivers new levels of reliability, durability, flexibility, and serviceability for a wide array of heavy-duty applications. Not to mention, it's all wrapped in a compact package that is easy to integrate, simple to maintain, and EPA Final Tier 4 and EU Stage V compliant.
