COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins announced today it has received GHG17 certification and will offer engines in 2017 that will be 2.5-7.5% more fuel-efficient than the 2013 ISX15.
The company’s entire diesel and natural gas engine line has been approved by the EPA and meets Phase 2 fuel economy/greenhouse gas emissions standards created jointly by the EPA and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and set to go into effect in January 2017.
“Cummins is committed to providing customer-focused innovation as soon as it is ready,” said Amy Boerger, vice-president, sales and support. “For example, efficiency improvements implemented in the 2016 ISX15 400 hp-to-475 hp ratings will provide customers with fuel economy gains over the 2013 ISX15, ranging from 2.5% on the base engine up to 7.5%with a SmartAdvantage Powertrain with ADEPT (SmartCoast) features.”
Cummins says it implemented efficiency improvements throughout 2014 and 2015 to set it up for compliance with GHG17 standards. More enhancements are coming this year, the company says.
