Twenty years ago, Series 4000 units revolutionized the world of high-speed, high-performance diesel engines. They were the first engines to have a common-rail fuel injection system. Series 2000 also made its debut in the same year. Both these engine types also fundamentally changed MTU as a business. From a highly specialized engine-maker primarily working on government contracts, the company became a global operator increasingly offering products for the commercial market. Since their introduction in 1996, both engine series have become the big sellers in MTU's portfolio. More than 90,000 units have been sold since the original launch. We send our very best birthday wishes to MTU's two star performers.
