In the spring of 2008, DAF was one of the first truck manufacturers to have its entire product range (LF, CF and XF105) available with the EEV emission level option. By offering an ultralow emission version of its 6.7 litre six-cylinder PACCAR GR-engine, all engine versions are now available in EEV-specification. Just like the 4.5 litre four-cylinder PACCAR FR-engine in the LF, the GR-engine doesn’t need a soot filter to achieve EEV-emission levels. DAF offers the 6.7 litre PACCAR GR-engine in its LF and CF65 vehicles, with power outputs from 165 KW/220 hp to 220 KW/300 hp.
MX EEV without soot filter as well
By optimizing the engine management system, DAF can now also offer several versions of its 12.9 litre PACCAR MX-engine in EEV-specification, without the need to fit a soot filter. The versions concerned are the 265 KW/360 hp and 300 KW/410 hp engines offered in the DAF CF85. The 300 KW/410 hp version is also offered in the DAF XF105. The fact that the EEV-emission levels can be achieved without the use of a soot filter, means a weight advantage of about 30 kilograms. Furthermore it means that there is more space available on the chassis, which can be used for installing extra components or larger fuel tanks.
