Dynamax Force and DX3 switching to DD8

From the Dynamax website....A look under the DX3s hood reveals an impressive powerhouse that showcases the Detroit DD8 7.7L 375 HP engine and the Allison 3200 TRV automatic transmission, resulting in remarkable torque (1,050 lb.-ft.) and towing capacity (20,000 lbs.).

Interesting. How does this engine compare to the Cummins L9 that they previously used? It had 350hp / 1150 lb-ft if I remember correctly so the specs are close.

the warranty is nice but for service stand point I would go with L9 given a choice.

The Cummins L9 is moving from the 350 hp with 1150 lb-ft to a 360 hp with 1150 lb-ft for 2021 model year engines.
