COLUMBUS, Ind. (Feb. 1, 2016) – Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) continues to redefine efficiency through product and service improvements aimed at providing customer-focused benefits. Today, Cummins announced two enhancements for the market-leading heavy-duty ISX15 engine that will increase customers’ equipment residual value and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO).
The two enhancements, an extended Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) ash cleaning interval and the Encore Xtra™ protection plan, reinforce Cummins commitment to offer industry-leading residual value to customers. “Cummins is dedicated to customer-focused innovation in everything we do,” said Amy Boerger, Vice President – Sales and Support. “These actions are not only a testament of our confidence in our products, but also a commitment to our brand promise of dependability.”
Cummins 2016 ISX15 is capable of an extended DPF ash cleaning interval reaching up to 500,000 miles (804,672 km) for conventional linehaul applications with fuel economy greater than 5.5 miles per gallon. Cummins achieved this industry-leading extended interval through design enhancements that reduced oil consumption and ash accumulation.
Cummins has also announced the introduction of Encore Xtra, a new in-service extended protection plan available for 2010 and 2013 ISX12 and ISX15 engines. The plan must be registered by 6 years/650,000 miles and after any current extended coverage has expired. While traditional Encore plans have only been available to used-truck buyers, Encore Xtra is also available to the first owner in recognition of some customers’ longer trade cycles. With extended maintenance intervals and increased peace of mind, Cummins provides lower TCO for the first ownership cycle, and increases residual value at time of resale.
