1.59 Million Caterpillar Engines on the Road Today

With more than 1.59 million* Cat® engines on the road today, and more than 1.17 million on-highway engines shipped in the last 12 years, 2006 was a record-breaking year for Caterpillar Global On-Highway engine sales.
This success is a direct result of Caterpillar's commitment to developing cutting-edge technology solutions"”specifically, the introduction of the company's state-of-the-art ACERT™ Technology for emissions reduction. More than 53,000 individual customers using nearly 500,000 vehicles equipped with Cat engines with ACERT Technology are a profound reflection of the effectiveness of Caterpillar technology solutions.

"Developing and enhancing ACERT Technology is an ongoing process and has involved a huge investment in research," said George Taylor, director and general manager, Global On-Highway Business at Caterpillar. "This technology was originally designed to meet stringent emissions standards without sacrificing performance or fuel economy. The enhancements made to meet the 2007 regulations provide customers even greater engine value now and in the future."

The ACERT™ Technology employed by the new Caterpillar® engine line for 2007 remains a systems solution, refined to meet the more stringent 2007 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emissions regulations. Two major enhancements"”a refined combustion process called Clean Gas Induction (CGI) and a self-regenerating Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)"”ensure that Cat engines meet the 2007 emissions regulations without sacrificing the reliability, durability and fuel economy advantage Caterpillar engines always have delivered.

In 2006, the Caterpillar C-12 received the J.D. Power and Associates award for ranking "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Vocational Heavy Duty Diesel Truck Engines" in an annual study of vehicle owners who operate in typically rugged vocations, such as dump trucks or garbage trucks. The 2007 engines feature an enhanced version of ACERT Technology that allows these engines to comply with the 2007 EPA regulations without sacrificing reliability, durability or fuel economy. A Caterpillar engine has ranked highest in the vocational segment all six times the award has been given, demonstrating Cat's superiority.

In terms of sales, Caterpillar engines continue to lead the industry, with 27 percent of heavy duty and mid-range units combined and 29 percent of heavy duty units shipped in 2006, as reported by Wards Communications. Caterpillar also leads the specialty market-in fact, last year Cat was the No. 1 diesel engine for Class A motor homes, based on RVIA industry data, with more than 50.5 percent of these vehicles powered by a Cat engine. And, Caterpillar is the engine leader in the transit bus business, with more and more major transit authority companies each year switching to Cat power.

"We believe our sales leadership can be directly attributed to the technology that allows Cat engines to comply with tightening emissions standards while still delivering the efficiency and overall value vehicle owners need," Taylor said.

For more than 81 years, Caterpillar Inc. has been making progress possible and driving positive and sustainable change on every continent. With 2006 sales and revenues of $41.5 billion, Caterpillar is the world's leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines and industrial gas turbines. The company is a technology leader in construction, transportation, mining, forestry, energy, logistics, financing and electric power generation. Caterpillar is the leading manufacturer and supplier of truck and bus engines in the combined medium and heavy duty categories in North America, holding the leading position in engine shipments to vehicle manufacturers since 1999. More information is available at CAT.com.
