Cursor GBVI engines are been developed thanks to the latest FPT Industrial technologies. China is increasingly in the thoughts and attention of Fpt Industrial, not only because of the brilliant performance of the SFH joint venture.

Cursor GBVI engines: Titanium-Vanadium

The Cursor 9, Cursor 11, and Cursor 13 engines meet in advance the GBVI emission standards that will be fully implemented in China, starting from July 1, 2021.  Two are the new key technologies featuring in the Cursor GBVI series just unveiled in Shanghai. The first is the Ti-V (Titanium – Vanadium) after treatment technology. With this solution, customers can benefit of no forced parking regeneration, no fuel injection and even no forced parking regeneration button on the truck console, mean increased uptime, reduced fuel consumption, and simpler uninterrupted operation. A great progress compared to other products requiring a 40-to-90 minutes parking regeneration every 8,000 kilometers. In addition, the Ti-V after treatment system features a high sulfur resistance and a higher adaptability to low-quality fuels. Throw in lower operating temperatures and higher reliability is guaranteed. Last but not least, the DPF service interval has been increased to 450,000 kilometers, 50% more than competitors. 



The second core technology is eVGT (Electronically-controlled Variable Geometry Turbocharger) technology on Cursor 13 engine. Being the best solution for long-distance and heavy-duty trucks over 16 tons of Gross Vehicle Weight, the Cursor 13 features the new eVGT technology for best-in-class transient response. In other words, the eVGT allows the development of maximum torque up to 2,500 Nm at as low as 950 rpm. So, the vehicle can instantly leverage the full power when starting and accelerating, which doubles the acceleration response of ordinary superchargers. In addition, eVGT can also improve the Cursor engine’s in-cylinder braking effect by more than 60%, thus greatly reducing brake pads wear and driver fatigue. Finally, eVGT technology is also a perfect match with AMT automatic transmission. Through automatic collection of operating data, automatic adjustment of boost pressure, and automatic shifting, it creates a more intelligent and convenient driving experience. 


The key advancements equipping the Cursor GBVI engines are the Ti-V (Titanium – Vanadium), guaranteeing the engine to be unstoppable, and the eVGT (Electronically-controlled Variable Geometry Turbocharger) for Cursor 13, making the GBVI the best choice for heavy-duty truck.  From SCR to HI-eSCR, and from GBIII to GBVI, SFH kept introducing FPT’s leading technology to China, rapidly answering to market and user needs, and providing innovative, efficient and reliable powertrain solutions. The Cursor GBVI engine leverage on FPT’s latest generation High-efficiency SCR Aftertreatment System (HI-eSCR) for fully compliance with China strict emission regulation. 


Cursor 9 adopts an upgraded turbocharger, which is suitable for smaller rear axle speed ratio and optimized for high altitude working environments, making it the first choice for construction vehicles


FPT Industrial: let’s go, XC13

The XC13 surely sounds agnostic in FPT Industrial’s unofficial nomenclature; it comes, indeed, with a tripartite certification: Euro 6E (winking an eye at the upcoming Euro 7), methane gas and also biofuel, with a link to hydrogen. Andrea Abbà, FPT’s product marketing manager, told us about dialogui...
