Sep 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Paccar Inc and Cummins Inc have announced an agreement for Cummins' 6- and 8-liter engines to be installed exclusively in Peterbilt and Kenworth's North American conventional medium-duty commercial vehicles, effective Jan 1, 2007. The two companies are developing proprietary configurations for the engines, which will be badged as Paccar engines.
“This agreement is a natural extension of the engine collaboration, which DAF and Cummins have had in Europe for seven years,” said Tom Plimpton, Paccar president. Cummins 4- and 6-liter engines, badged as Paccar, are exclusive in the DAF LF product. The DAF LF has approximately 10% of the European market.
Peterbilt and Kenworth will continue to offer a choice of engines in their Class 8 vehicles.
