Posted on January 12, 2009

Cummins Inc. reaffirmed that its entire on-highway product range, including its ISX engine, will be ready to meet the new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations for the North American market beginning in 2010.

The company will offer a range of engines from the 6.7-liter ISB to 15-liter ISX, delivering best-in-class fuel economy and performance while complying with the EPA’s newest and most stringent emissions standards.

For 2010, Cummins will introduce the ISX15, which will provide substantial fuel economy improvement, stronger performance, faster throttle response, and overall best-in-class drivability and reliability. The ISX15 will feature the new Cummins XPI fuel system, next generation cooled EGR system, advanced VGT turbocharger and a new Cummins Aftertreatment System that incorporates Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) catalyst technology.

Cummins will also introduce the new ISX11.9, providing a compact and lightweight medium-bore engine ideal for vocational trucks, emergency vehicles and motorcoach applications. The ISX11.9 will have common subsystems with the ISX15, including the XPI fuel system, VGT turbocharger, Cummins Aftertreatment System and advanced electronic controls.
