The new D976 is intended for applications including construction machinery, cranes, agricultural and forestry equipment, as well as special vehicles. The design is based on modular engine components. The engine includes the Liebherr CRS 11.2 common rail system and a Liebherr engine control unit.

The exhaust gas aftertreatment will have a modular design. The engine will be available in different emission versions for differently regulated markets: from unregulated through Stage III A, Tier 4f, China IV and Stage V emission standards.
