Empowering Your Business with Detroit

Maximizing Efficiency

Detroit® services – including the Detroit Integrated Powertrain, Detroit Assurance® and Detroit Connect® – are designed to keep trucks on the road, reducing downtime and increasing profitability. 


Running Smart with the Integrated Detroit Powertrain


Freightliner runs on the power of the Detroit Integrated Powertrain. The Detroit Powertrain integrates three specifically-engineered Detroit components — engine, transmission and axle — to work together and create a system that is optimized for efficiency, performance and reliability. When you’re behind the wheel of a Freightliner, the Detroit powertrain communicates in real time with its proprietary network and motor-control module, optimizing efficiency throughout the entire powertrain. Separately, each component of the Integrated Detroit Powertrain (IDP) is a major engineering achievement, but when the Detroit® DD13 engine or DD15 is paired with the DT12® transmission and Detroit® axles, the IDP produces unprecedented levels of performance, fuel economy and reliability. 


Protecting Your Business and Your Fleet with Detroit Assurance


With Detroit Assurance® Suite of Safety Systems, it’s easier to keep your vehicles operational and earning money – whether they’re traveling down the highway or on the job site. Customers count on your fleet to deliver. The Detroit Assurance suite systems is designed to help you do just that – and more.

Maximizing Uptime with Detroit Connect

Detroit Connect® delivers the information you need to make smart decisions and maximize your fleet’s uptime. Detroit Connect Virtual Technician® takes the guesswork out of truck maintenance. When a check engine light appears, Virtual Technician sends the severity of the problem and a preliminary diagnosis to the fleet manager. If the problem needs immediate attention, the experts at Detroit will identify the nearest authorized service location with the proper parts in stock to fix the problem. 

Detroit Connect also offers Detroit Connect Remote Updates, for remote engine parameter updates and DDEC downloads, and Detroit Connect Analytics. Analytics provide fleet managers with expert fuel economy and safety insights, allowing them to see the overall health of their fleet and what steps need to be taken to make the fleet more productive and safer, including collision mitigation braking events, lane departure warnings, distance violations and more.
