Most powerful six-cylinder in-line engine for agricultural machinery in the company’s history; designed for the highest power requirements

At Agritechnica 2019, MAN Engines will be presenting a 16.2-litre six-cylinder in-line engine for agricultural applications for the first time


At Agritechnica 2019, MAN Engines will be presenting its new 16.2-litre diesel engine for agricultural machinery for the first time. It is the most powerful six-cylinder in-line engine ever developed by MAN Engines for agricultural machinery, and has been designed specifically for off-road applications requiring the highest levels of power. This powerful model offers by far the highest power density in this capacity category for agricultural applications, making it ideally suited for use in heavy-duty agricultural machinery with demanding load profiles, such as forage harvesters or large combine harvesters. The engine also bridges the gap in power outputs that currently exists between the six-cylinder in-line engine D3876 with 15.3 l displacement and the V12 engine D2862 (24.2 l) in MAN’s engine range.

The global innovation can be viewed at Agritechnica between 10 and 16 November at the exhibition centre in Hanover, at booth D41 in Hall 16. MAN Engines’ exhibition space, which measures more than 200 square metres, will also play host to the 9-litre D1556 diesel engine, the E3268 gas engine and the company’s modular exhaust gas after-treatment system. Alongside these exhibits, MAN Truck & Bus will also showcase a special agricultural truck that demonstrates the versatility of trucks in the agricultural sector.
