Detroit Diesel Corp's flagship Series 60 heavy-duty diesel engine was recently recognized by Diesel Power Magazine as the number-two-ranked “Best Diesel Engine Ever” on a list compiled by the publication. The number-one ranking went to the first working diesel engine made by Rudolph Diesel, who is considered the father of the modern diesel engine.
