A year later, it placed a sight-unseen order for 350 new 4000 hp SD70MACs - despite the additional half-million dollars or more that AC electronics added to each engine's price - and the AC revolution was on. Slightly late to the party, General Electric introduced its first AC engine, the AC4400CW (shown elsewhere in this catalog) the same year, but production would not ramp up until a year later.

            From 1993 through 2004, when new environmental regulations produced the upgraded SD70ACe, EMD sold 1,109 SD70MACs. The largest fleets were and still are owned by BN (now BNSF), which ultimately bought over 800, and CSX, with over 200 purchased. In addition to AC traction, a big selling point of the SD70MAC, and the entire SD70 series, was its self-steering trucks, a feature GE could not match at the time. EMD's HTCR ("high traction, three-axle, radial") truck could steer into curves, greatly reducing wear on both track and wheels; it was widely recognized as superior to the trucks on competitive GE diesels.
