Our Customers

hyundai 1

 

Hyundai Motors was Jacobs’ first customer in Korea and has been the supplier of Hyundai’s engine brakes since 2000. The Hyundai Powertec engine is available with the Model 2100B Jacobs engine brake and can be found in Hyundai trucks and buses as well as Kia Bus. The Model 2100A remains available on export vehicles.

In 2008, Hyundai released a new 10L engine and this came available with a new Jacobs' technology, the Bridge Brake. This brake Model 2120 combines strong retarding performance with a new lightweight design that is integrated into the engine overhead. 

After several years of development, Jacobs is pleased to have Hyundai as its launch customer for this new engine braking concept. Genuine Jacobs service parts and replacement housings for Hyundai’s engines are exclusively available through Hyundai Mobis.
