Caterpillar continually invests in research and development to improve new product offerings. As an owner of a Cat® product, you may be able to take advantage of this research and development. Working closely with new product introduction teams, Caterpillar evaluates and applies selected value added features from these programs to allow our customers to upgrade their existing machines and engines. This includes upgrades for performance, ergonomics, access/egress, owning & operating costs, and serviceability improvements. Your Cat Dealer can tell you more about all the upgrade and retrofit options available to help enhance both your Cat products and your bottom line.
