When the going gets tough, the tough get going. FPT Industrial is again taking part in the annual, world-famous Dakar rally, and is a 2019 sponsor, equipping the four trucks of the Petronas Team De Rooy IVECO with its Cursor 13 engines.


The Dakar rally is one of the most extreme competitions in the world, but it is not for the fainthearted: it requires passion, technology and endurance, and theFPT Industrial Cursor 13 has all of these features. While the FPT Industrial engine was conceived to deliver high performance and top efficiency, all while respecting the environment, in industrial applications, it has also proven itself in racing. The IVECO vehicles’ Cursor 13 engines were especially engineered for such a challenging rally. The customization was undertaken at the FPT Industrial Arbon Research & Development center.


The 13-liter engine is renowned for its reliability in on-road long haul missions, as well as in agricultural applications, such as for large tractors and harvesters. The IVECO vehicles’ Cursor 13 engines were especially engineered for such a challenging rally and can reach a maximum power of up to 1,000 hp.
