Jacobs Vehicle Systems®, the global manufacturer of diesel and natural gas engine retarding systems and valve actuation mechanisms has launched a compression release engine retarder for the Isuzu 6UZ1 heavy duty engine.
The collaborative effort between Isuzu’s and Jacobs’ engineers resulted in the development of a powerful and reliable compression release brake which enhanced the performance of Isuzu’s engine while reducing the truck’s total cost of ownership. The Isuzu 6UZ1 engine with the Jacobs Engine Brake® is now available in Japan on the GIGA series of heavy duty trucks that employs Isuzu’s next generation D-CORE diesel engines.
“This launch is the result of a successful partnership between Isuzu Motors and Jacobs Vehicle Systems. We are proud to design and manufacture the engine retarder for the 9.8L engine that now equips the new GIGA heavy duty trucks from Isuzu,” said Sergio Sgarbi, president of Jacobs Vehicle Systems.
