Introducing AM General's New 6.5L Turbodiesel
By Jim Bigley & Hans W. Hauschild
AM General has a new 6.5L diesel engine. The genesis for the engine modifications we'll discuss here began more than a year ago when I first heard about a series of proposed changes to the 6.5 that would allow for a significant power and durability increase. The HMMWV is getting heavier, with all the armor and military technology being added, and a more capable diesel engine became necessary. The power increases, as well as structural and component changes we'll discuss here will take the 6.5 to the next level in performance.
The full story on AMG's new 6.5 can be found in The 6.5L Turbo Diesel Volume III:.
