3 Ways CAT Reman UTN Cylinder heads save you money


Did you know most Cat® Reman cylinder heads are sold as upgrade-to-new (UTN) products? That means you pay less than you would for a new cylinder head, but still get 100 percent new product and a same-as-new, 12-month Caterpillar Limited Warranty1. And because they're designed, manufactured and tested just for your Cat truck engine, UTN cylinder heads deliver the reliability, durability and fuel economy you expect.

Here are three reasons to consider UTN cylinder heads instead of buying new or rebuilding:



REASON 1: Forgiving Core Acceptance Criteria2

You get more for your money with our flexible criteria — including 100 percent credit for cores with:

  • An aftermarket head or aftermarket piece parts (valves, springs, guides, etc.)
  • Unsuccessful salvage attempts, such as milling, grinding or welding
  • Cracks caused by operational failure, non-operational failure or mishandling
  • Excessive rust or corrosion


REASON 2: 100 Percent New Product

UTN cylinder heads feature all new components, new casting and the latest engineering updates. They also must pass multiple quality checks during the remanufacturing process. They're machined and assembled in the U.S., cast and heat-treated to strict Caterpillar standards and built to help you achieve lower owning and operating costs over your Cat truck engine's lifecycle.


REASON 3: Same-As-New Warranty

Because they're 100 percent new products, you can expect your UTN cylinder heads to perform as reliably as new parts. But if there is an issue, you're protected by a same-as-new unlimited miles, 12-month Caterpillar Limited Warranty1. It covers:

  • Repairs at any authorized Cat dealer (not limited to the original selling or servicing dealer)
  • Parts1 and installation labor1 to replace defective parts, even if the original repair was not performed by a Cat dealer (assuming workmanship did not cause the failure)
  • Resultant damage1 caused by a covered component to other Cat engine components
  • Replacement of engine oil, coolant and filters if contaminated during a failure of a covered component1

1Warranty can vary by model and application; limitations may apply. For complete details about the applicable Caterpillar Limited Warranty, contact an authorized Cat dealer.

2Additional guidelines may apply. Contact your authorized Cat dealer for more information.
