COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins has extended the cleaning intervals on its diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and introduced a new Encore Xtra protection plan for certain engines.
The new offerings lower total cost of ownership and enhance residual value for Cummins customers, the company announced.
It has pushed out DPF ash cleaning intervals on its 2016 ISX15 to 500,000 miles or 804,672 kms in conventional linehaul applications where fuel economy is greater than 5.5 mpg. Cummins said it was able to do so through design enhancements that reduced oil consumption and ash accumulation.
Its new Encore Xtra in-service extended protection plan is available for 2010 and 2013 ISX12 and ISX15 engines. The plan must be registered by six years/650,000 miles and after any current extended coverage has expired, the company announced.
The new extended coverage plan is available to original owners in recognition of customers who run longer trade cycles.
“Cummins is dedicated to customer-focused innovation in everything we do,” said Amy Boerger, vice-president, sales and support. “These actions are not only a testament of our confidence in our products, but also a commitment to our brand promise of dependability.”
