IVECO Motorenforschung AG in Arbon, Switzerland is part of FIAT Powertrain (FPT) in the FIAT Industrial Group. Turning out approximately 450,000 units per year, FPT is a global player in the development and production of diesel engines. The Cursor engine range was first installed in IVECO trucks in 1998. Today's EURO 6 Cursor range has a common-rail high-pressure fuel injection system with a staggering operating pressure of 2,200 bar.
IVECO is the only manufacturer in the world that has managed to make its entire range of engines compliant with the European EURO 6 exhaust emission standard by simply using an SCR system, putting AdBlue in the exhaust system and fitting a soot filter. IVECO does not use EGR (a system that recycles 35% of the exhaust gasses back into the engine's combustion process). As a result, no additional cooling is required and the basic dimensions of the chassis and cabin can remain the same.
All IVECO EURO 6 engines are furthermore fitted with a throttle valve on the exhaust side; this system bears the name Super Engine Brake (SEB). The engine brake is integrated in the operational braking system and the optional intarder.

All Cursor engines of the EURO 6 generation are fitted with an even stronger engine brake, the SEB:
- Cursor 9 231 kW at 2,200 Rpm and 327 kW at 2,800 Rpm
- Cursor 10 230 kW at 1,900 Rpm and 419 kW at 2,600 Rpm
- Cursor 13 330 kW at 1,900 Rpm and 518 kW at 2,600 Rpm
