Some time ago at FPT (Fiat Power Train) we were told that the new 16 litre diesel engine would never be built into a truck. Well, the first one is presented now. At Eurosatory 2016 in France the new M1250 was launched. This is an 8×8 tractor for military purposes and the engine is the new 16 litre with an output of 680 Hp! The gearbox is a 12-speed TC-Tronic. That is the ZF automatic gearbox with torque convertor and not the Traxon as we mentioned.
The story does not tell what the emission level is but when this is possible, why not in a road-going truck for heavy haulage?
