Cursor13 NG

  • Running with 100% CNG, LNG or biomethane

  • Stoichiometric combustion to assure best in class fuel consumption and lower noise than Diesel

  • The most powerful natural gas engine on the market

  • Fuel cost savings vs. Diesel of up to 40%

FPT is expanding its Cursor Natural Gas (NG) engines family, with a new 13 liters Euro VI Step C-compliant running on compressed/liquefied natural gas or bio-methane.

In addittion to current 7,8 liters C8 and 8,7 liters C9 for regional-inter regional distribution FPT is now introducing a new NG 13 liters delivering max power of 338 kW /460 Hp and max torque of 2000 Nm for long haul trucks

New NG C13 is the best alternative with low climate impact for long haul operations since it has been developed to meet high demands on performance and low operating costs without compromises durability.

Natural gas is the most eco-friendly fuel for internal combustion engines, capable of bringing significant environmental advantages:

  • • it improves local air quality nearly eliminating air pollutants,

  • • it mitigates global warming by significantly reducing CO2 emissi​ons

  • •​ and it significantly lowers engine noise.​


Features & benefits

Leveraging cutting-edge tecnology and more than 20 years of experience in natural gas engines, C13 natural gas delivers power up to 460 hp @ 1900 rpm and torque up to 2000 Nm @ 1100 rpm; offering up to 35% more power and 25% more torque than its current 100% natural gas best competitors.

The new natural gas engine, as all the other FPT NG engines, uses stoichiometric combustion to generate its power.
Since 1995 stoichiometric combustion has been the companies chosen technology, proven to be the only viable and cost-efficient solution available today to meet Euro VI Step C emission limits.
As matter of fact stoichiometric combustion allows the C13 NG to comply with Euro VI Step C standards with a simple and easy-to-install 3 way catalyst without EGR. New engine’s CO2 emission level is significantly lower compared to Diesel, and can reach near zero by using biomethane. Further CNG engines decrease noise pollution by having a smoother and more silent engine combustion cycle (Otto cycle) compared to Diesel engines.
Furthremore the EGR free combustion as well as the multipoint fuel injectors and fuel rails grants class leading fuel consumption.
The new engine achives high reliability standards both on mechanical and thermal stress thank to Ni-Resist cast-iron exhaust manifold, water cooled wastegate turbocharger and Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) cylinder head.
In addition to this, specific pistons rings and aluminium piston machining ensures 90’000 km oil service interval offering the longest service interval on the 100% NG engines market.

Fuel cost savings is up up to 30%-40%* compared to Cursor 460 hp diesel powered engine.
* depending on the fuel cost.

FPT lean technology avoiding Diesel and Ad-Blue adoption grants a user friend and compact solution with the possibility to mount up to 900 liters LNG fuel tank on the vehicle, leading to more than 1500 km range.
