COLUMBUS, Ind. – Cummins Inc. has announced the availability of a new rating for its 11-litre ISM engine.

A new ISM 425V vocational rating, with 425 horsepower and 1550 lb-ft peak torque, has been released.

This rating will serve the unique requirements of the severe service markets and will be available in International 5000i and 7000 Series vehicles.

“We’re extremely pleased to continue to provide severe service customers with the best diesel engines available in the heavy-duty and vocational truck market today,” said Cummins executive director, marketing Tom Kieffer.

“International customers will be impressed with the enhanced performance and reliability of the Cummins ISM engines.”

Cummins ISM engines feature the patented and proven Cummins Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VG Turbo) by Holset, that constantly adjusts airflow based on several factors, including engine load, altitude and temperature, providing improved transient response and vehicle performance.

Because the VG Turbo has only one moving part in the hot exhaust stream, it is more reliable and durable than competitive turbo designs which use flexible vanes with dozens of wear points and moving parts. Cummins patented design has been proven highly effective and reliable in more than 150,000 vehicles worldwide.
