EMD's Tier II emissions DC model will be the SD70M-2. It will replace all DC freight road locomotives in EMD's catalog. There are currently no demonstrators of this model.
Like the SD70ACe, it too will contain GM's 16-cylinder 710G prime mover rated at 4300 HP. It will be in the same SD89MAC style carbody as the SD70Ace.
No railroads have ordered the SD70M-2 yet, nor have any been produced. Official production of the type does not begin until 2005.
