THE new four-cylinder diesel unit OM 654 marks the debut of a new family of engines from Mercedes-Benz.

The first all-aluminium four-cylinder diesel engine from the German carmaker celebrates its world premiere in the new E-Class E 220 d in spring 2016.

“The new family of engines embodies more than 80 years of Mercedes-Benz diesel know-how,” said Professor Dr Thomas Weber, a member of the Daimler board of management with responsibility for group research and head of Mercedes-Benz cars Development.

“The new premium diesels are more efficient and powerful, lighter and more compact — and they are designed to meet all future global emissions standards.

“In our opinion, the diesel engine is indispensable in trucks and cars if we want to further reduce the CO2 emissions from traffic.”
