  • Overview
CALCULATE FINANCE

High Continuous Power Density

The A-Rating means the 3516E is able to deliver the engine’s full 2100 hp (1566 kW) @1650 rpm continuously without interruption or load cycling. That’s the type of heavy duty usage that some applications demand and the 3516E delivers it.

Reliable, Quiet and Durable Power

World-class manufacturing capability and processes coupled with proven core engine designs assure reliability, quiet operation, and many hours of productive life.

Fuel Efficiency

Fuel consumption is optimized to match operating cycles of a wide range of equipment and applications while maintaining low operating costs. Even with the addition of an SCR aftertreatment and the required diesel exhaust fluid, the 3516E costs 1.3% less to operate than the preceeding model
Tier 2 3516C.
