Thermo King's Tier IV truck unit engines, found in all new Thermo King truck units, have been shown to be significantly cleaner-burning. During recent testing, the Thermo King engines ran cleaner than competitive units in several key areas.

Testing determined that the Thermo King engine ran 38 percent cleaner on particulate matter emissions, 10 percent cleaner on nitrogen oxide emissions, and 54 percent cleaner on carbon monoxide emissions.

Tier IV engines, which the company launched in 2006, feature more horsepower than their predecessors, have EPA certification, and meet ARB standards, all while maintaining best-in-class service intervals.

For customers wanting to upgrade to the Tier IV engine-equipped truck unit, Thermo King offers a new-for-old exchange program, rather than the retrofit option. For more information, visit www.thermoking.com.
