According to China Yuchai, the YC6K13N engine has the highest torque power among similar-sized gas engines. By utilizing lean-burn technology, it reduces average energy consumption by 25% compared with a diesel engine of comparable size and power. This 13-liter engine uses 0.8 kg/ton of fuel per 100 kilometers and is compliant with Euro V emission standards.
The YC6K12 diesel engine applies high-reliability technology to enhance the engine's dependability and uses technologies such as more accurate combustion and electronic control, as well as high-strength materials and a high-efficiency engine cooling system, which substantially extends the engine's useful life. It is an advanced 12-liter engine compliant with Euro V and VI emission standards.
