The 2004 Mercedes-Benz MBE926 7.2-liter engine is now available on Freightliner's medium-duty Business Class M2 line. The 6-cyl. engine offers horsepower ratings from 250 to 330, at 800 to 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque.
The MBE926 is also equipped with an exhaust brake, providing more braking horsepower for improved vehicle control and less service brake wear. According to Freightliner, the brake is also quiet, producing less noise in city operations; it can be combined with the MBE compression brake for up to 215 braking hp. (182 bhp @ 2,300 rpm).
Electronic control systems include full diagnostics, electronic engine management and Detroit Diesel Diagnostic Link software for “periodic reporting and comprehensive views of vehicle operations.”
Like all MBE900 engines, it used an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system to comply with all 2004 emissions standards.
The MBE926 is backed by a three-year, 150,000-mile warranty for on-highway applications.
