Benefits and Features

The A-Rating means the 3516E is able to deliver the engine’s full 2100 hp (1566 kW) @1650 rpm continuously without interruption or load cycling. That’s the type of heavy duty usage that some applications demand and the 3516E delivers it.

World-class manufacturing capability and processes coupled with proven core engine designs assure reliability, quiet operation, and many hours of productive life.

Fuel consumption is optimized to match operating cycles of a wide range of equipment and applications while maintaining low operating costs. Even with the addition of an SCR aftertreatment and the required diesel exhaust fluid, the 3516E costs 1.3% less to operate than the preceeding model
Tier 2 3516C.
