Available for: On-Highway, Heavy-Duty Truck

Overview

ISX15 for Heavy-Duty Truck (2013)

The Cummins ISX15 is the only engine offered as an option by every major truck manufacturer in the business and is the most popular heavy-duty engine in North America. It was the first engine certified to meet 2014 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, a full year ahead of schedule. The 2013 ISX15 is equipped with On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) which monitors and ensures optimal performance of the emissions system.

Better Fuel Economy.
The Cummins ISX15 is the industry leader in fuel economy, and it keeps getting better. In 2013 we’re refining our proven technology to deliver up to 2% better fuel economy, Improved fuel and water pumps operate with greater efficiency, providing the engine with more usable horsepower. This, together with optimized combustion and fewer active regenerations of the aftertreatment system, means better fuel economy.

Better Reliability and Durability.
Total integration of everything from the air handling to the exhaust aftertreatment allows us to optimize every function to a degree no other engine manufacturer can match. Every element has been designed and manufactured to optimize fuel economy, performance, reliability and durability while delivering the lowest operating costs of any engine in its class.

Better Performance.
Ratings range from 400-600 hp (298-447 kW) with up to 2050 lb-ft (2779 n•M) of peak torque. These include SmartTorque ratings that add 200 lb-ft of extra torque in the top two gears so Class 8 trucks can make it up steep grades with fewer downshifts. Vocational ratings have additional torque in the lower gear ranges, where it's needed most.

Better Coverage For Better Confidence.
Base engine warranty coverage for the ISX15 includes parts and labor on warrantable failures for both the engine and aftertreatment system with no deductible. Extended Coverage Plans are available for the base engine with options for up to 7 years or 500,000 miles (804,672 km). Extended coverage plans are also available for the aftertreatment system and major components. Check with your Cummins distributor or dealer for details.
