DEUTZ AG announced the launch of a brand new engine platform at BAUMA this year where all the big names in the global construction equipment gather.
In keeping with its motto, Future Driven – Engine Technology of the Future, DEUTZ unveiled its latest engine project to the approval of its audience – the all new TCD 5.0.
The new engine project is a water-cooled inline four-cylinder with five litre cubic capacity.
The serial introduction is planned for 2019, in time for the next EU Stage V emission standard.
The particularly compact diesel with turbo charging and intercooling has a performance of 100 to 150 kW and offers another powerful alternative within the DEUTZ product world.
The engine follows the downsizing principle, which means it generates more performance with less cubic capacity. Thus, larger engines can be replaced, or more performance can be generated with the same size, enabling the engine to work more efficiently.

With its pipeless construction that displays a reduced number of parts, the platform, which was developed from the ground up, drew particular attention from the attendees.
The engine also has an overhead camshaft, a cross flow cylinder head with a high cross-linking of parts and functions, maintenance-free hydraulic valve-clearance compensation, and a robust dust and shock-resistant cylinder head cover.
As Michael Wellenzohn, member of the management board of DEUTZ AG for the area Sales/ Service & Marketing, explains, “With the TCD 5.0 engine, we would like to fill the performance gap in the range between 100 and 150 kW. At the same time, we are developing a new technological foundation with outstanding product properties.”
To satisfy the high emission regulations of EU Stage V, the TCD 5.0 will have the tried-and-tested DEUTZ exhaust gas treatment, consisting of diesel particulate filter (DPF), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), which are already successfully deployed in Stage IV.
