C13 2004 Engine
Payload-Pulling Power to Rely On
- Reduced emissions with Caterpillar patented variable valve actuation
- Million-mile durability from robust component design and increased oil sump capacity
- Superior fuel economy from series turbochargers and Cat® MEUI fuel system
- Improved head gasket design and higher efficiency from cross-flow head design
Continuing the legacy of reliability established by the Cat C-12, the new C13 on-highway engine evolves from a uni-flow cylinder head design to a cross-flow setup, with improved breathing ability and better responsiveness. Like the new C15, it also features a higher compression ratio, higher cylinder pressure, and series turbocharging for improved power, performance and fuel economy.The engine of choice for fleets requiring excellent performance and dependability in a lightweight package, the C13 weighs in at just 2,270lb (1030kg) and features the industry's best horsepower-to-payload ratio. Compared to other engines in its horsepower range, it provides up to 800 lb (363 kg) of additional payload capacity for pulling power to spare.
