Cummins Introduces New X15 Heavy Duty Engines

New Engines Designed for Lower Emissions, Maintenance, Higher Economy

Oct 13, 2016
They’re the big workhorses of the American economy, but don’t let their size deceive you into thinking they’re low-tech. The Class-8 truck sector is seeing some of the most significant technological advances of any transportation sector. Much of the advancement is being driven by regulatory changes. However, fleets and drivers are also beneficiaries of the improvements in economy, refinement, and cleaner emissions. The latest to come in the arena comes from Cummins, which just introduced its new X15 Series engines. The X15 is an evolution of the proven ISX15 engine with an optimized compression ratio, air handling system, and combustion process to deliver up to 20 percent better fuel economy and 30 percent lower maintenance costs than comparable 2010 ISX15 engines. The engines also meet the new 2017 EPA greenhouse gas emissions standards.
Configurations are available between 400 to 605 hp and up to 2,050 lb-ft of torque. The X15 is also equipped with a telematics system allowing for over-the-air programming, customization, and diagnostics. With Cummins’ Connected Solutions program, driver sand fleet managers can update to the latest calibration without having to bring their truck into a service bay. The engine enters into limited production at Cummins’ Jamestown, New York, engine plant in late 2016, with full production staring January 2017.
