LOUISVILLE, Ky. – March 22, 2012 – Detroit Diesel Corporation continues its move to optimize development of vertically integrated powertrain solutions by announcing the re-naming of the Detroit Diesel Genuine Parts brand to simply Detroit Genuine Parts.

Detroit Genuine Parts will continue to offer a full range of maintenance, repair and overhaul options for its engines that will now expand to cover transmissions and axles. The brand’s remanufactured offering includes cylinder heads, water pumps, turbochargers, fuel injectors, diesel particulate filters and complete engines. Detroit remanufactured components are truly remanufactured to like-new condition, restoring them to top performance. All carry the Detroit Genuine Parts 1-year/unlimited-mile warranty for peace of mind.

“Detroit Genuine Parts stand for the highest quality possible, ensuring that your integrated powertain solution maintains the same trusted, durable performance that it had when it rolled off the assembly line,” said Daniel Haggerty, director of parts and service marketing for Daimler Trucks North America LLC. “The new name reflects our commitment to innovation in powertrain technologies and maintaining our customers’ assets with genuine OEM parts that meet and exceed performance expectations.”
