JCB has confirmed that it plans to develop its own 4- and 6-liter diesel engines. The engine is being developed in close partnership with engine specialists Ricardo, AVL, Cosworth and Krause specifically for the off-highway equipment sector.


"The JCB engine will give higher performance than existing engines and also comply with future worldwide emission requirements," said JCB Chairman and Managing Director Sir Anthony Bamford. "The engine, when manufactured, will enable JCB to supply the best possible power train package for its customers."


For the foreseeable future, JCB will continue to source 1-, 1.5- and 2-liter engines from Perkins.
