Cummins announces engine line for 2013
Sep 1, 2012 12:00 PM
Cummins Inc has announced its engine products that will be available to North American trucking customers in 2013. Product improvements continue to offer reliability and fuel economy across a full line of diesel and natural gas commercial vehicle engines.
The company's engines will deliver up to 2% fuel economy improvement over current products and will use the same high-pressure common rail fuel systems, VGT Turbocharger, and fully integrated electronics for improved combustion efficiency, performance, and reliability. Base engine improvements reduce the parasitic load on the engine through high-efficiency water, fuel, and lube pump systems. Cummins engines will meet the 2014 fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas (GHG) standards beginning in January 2013.
Cummins will build on the success of its US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2010 MidRange and Heavy-Duty products with the same base engines and emissions architecture for 2013. All commercial vehicle diesel engines feature the Cummins Emission Solutions EcoFit Ultra-Low Emissions exhaust aftertreatment system, integrating a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR). On-Board Diagnostics (OBD), proven on hundreds of thousands of engines since 2007, will be extended across the entire lineup.
In addition to the diesel lineup from the ISB6.7 to the ISX15, Cummins will continue to offer the Cummins Westport ISL G natural gas engine, and it will introduce the Cummins Westport ISX12 G into full production in 2013. Cummins Westport is a joint venture between Cummins Inc and Westport Innovations.
