(March 30, 2011) -
Cummins portfolio of 2011 on-highway engines ranging from 200 hp to 600 hp (149-447 kW) continues to meet customer demands of better fuel economy, performance and reliability. Cummins lineup of diesel and natural gas engines, including the ISX15, ISX11.9, ISL9, ISC8.3 and ISB6.7 as well as the ISL G and 6.7L Turbo Diesel for Ram Trucks, will be on display at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville from March 31 to April 2.
From the start, Cummins ability to develop fully integrated engines, from air intake to exhaust aftertreatment, has provided the foundation for its EPA 2010-certified products. Cummins Heavy-Duty and MidRange lineups feature a custom-built VGT™ Turbocharger from Cummins Turbo Technologies, cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and the Cummins Aftertreatment System, which includes the Cummins Particulate Filter and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) catalyst.
These components, along with the XPI fuel system on the ISX15, ISX11.9, ISL9 and ISC8.3, and the High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) fuel system on the ISB6.7, have combined to provide an optimum balance of performance, emissions control and fuel economy across the entire operating range.
The natural gas-powered ISL G, designed by Cummins Westport, offers outstanding performance, fuel economy, reliability and quiet, clean operation. The expanding infrastructure for natural gas has continued to increase customer interest in the ISL G, making it the industry leader in alternative fuel engines.
Exclusive in Ram Heavy Duty trucks, the 6.7L Turbo Diesel continues to offer superior performance for customers with demanding duty cycles. And its new High-Output torque rating produces peak torque of up to 800 lb-ft (1085 N•m). Cummins proven 6.7L Turbo Diesel delivers best-in-class, low-end torque and a standard integrated exhaust brake, continuing its tradition of legendary performance in Ram Heavy Duty trucks.
“Real customer experience and feedback are the cornerstones of the success of our products,” said Rich Freeland, President – Cummins Engine Business. “Customers are experiencing the benefits of better fuel economy and performance as well as the reliability they expect from Cummins engines,” added Freeland.
Production volumes further confirm that Cummins EPA 2010 engines are the first choice of customers across all on-highway applications. Over 130,000 EPA 2010-certified engines, including more than 62,000 with SCR technology, have been produced and shipped from Cummins manufacturing facilities in Jamestown, N.Y.; Rocky Mount, N.C.; and Columbus, Ind., during 2010.
