The Detroit Diesel Series 60 is a heavy duty inline six cylinder diesel engine that has transport industry applications. The Series 60 was introduced in 1987 as an 11.1 or 12.7 litre diesel engine, and a displacement of 14 litres was later made available. Detroit Diesel boasts the Series 60 as the first fully integrated heavy duty diesel engine with electronic controls in the world.[1] In 1998, the 11.1 litre version was dropped with the 12.7 litre version remaining.[2] A 14 litre engine was later made available and offered alongside the 12.7 litre version until 2007 when, coinciding with the 2007 EPA regulations, the 12.7 litre Series 60 was dropped and the 14 litre Series 60 remained.

On April 5, 2002, Detroit Diesel announced that the Series 60 will use exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) to meet the EPA 2004 emissions standard in October 2002 as part of the "pull-ahead" agreement.[3] October 14, 2002, Detroit Diesel announced that the Series 60 received EPA certification.[4] They also announced that the Series 60 with EGR features a new low profile gear train along with other lighter-weight components to offset the weight of the EGR system.[4] The Series 60 features an overhead camshaft which eliminates pushrods, and thus the fuel injectors are actuated directly by the cam lobes. Detroit Diesel claims this allows for increased injection pressure, which will improve fuel economy and performance while reducing emissions.[5]

Detroit Diesel announced on March 12, 2004, their plans to meet the EPA 2007 emissions standard.[6] To comply with the 2007 EPA regulations the 2007 Series 60 features improved cooled EGR system and aftertreatment system made up of an oxidation catalyst and particulate filter. The 2007 engine features DDEC VI electronics. DDEC VI controls, among things, the high-pressure dual solenoid injectors allowing for improved fuel control and fewer emissions. The engine also features a one-piece piston's closed oil gallery, improved ring cooling, higher compression ratio, an electronic variable geometry turbocharger, and crankcase oil seperator.[7]
