PORTLAND, Ore. – Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) will have both an SCR and a non-SCR engine option available for customers in 2010.
The company announced recently that it will offer Cummins ISX power, as well as the Detroit Diesel DD15, on its line of Class 8 Freightliner, Sterling and Western Star trucks.
Daimler’s own DD15 will use urea-based Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to meet EPA2010 emissions standards while Cummins has said it will not require SCR. The Cummins ISX will be available in the Freightliner Cascadia in an EPA07 configuration, with deliveries to commence in January, 2009.
“This decision will complement our current successful and proprietary product line of Detroit Diesel and Mercedes-Benz engines. It will expand and strengthen the range of choices for our customers, and establish Cummins as a full range vendor engine partner,” said Chris Patterson, president and chief executive officer of DTNA. “This action was a result of many months of carefully considered planning and consulting with our key customers to determine engine needs and preferences. We are convinced that expanded engine options will offer the best suite of solutions on the market, bar none.”
