Development Engines

Especially in the off-road segment with its small number of machines, a cost-efficient development is imperative. For this reason, solutions from the on-road sector are often transferred to mobile machines. With the D3876, MAN has developed an in-line six-cylinder engine for heavy commercial vehicles, agricultural applications and construction machines. While the basic powertrain and the injection equipment are identical for both application areas, the on-road and off-road versions differ in their concepts for turbocharging, combustion and electronics as well as the attachments and the exhaust gas aftertreatment.

Differences between On- and Off-road

The D3876 was presented as a completely new and standalone engine series from MAN in 2014. This 15.26 l in-line six-cylinder engine has replaced the previous D2868 16.2 l V8 engine in the commercial vehicles sector and will also gradually replace the V8 engine in off-road applications with the introduction of the new emissions categories....
