DENTON, Tex. – With the Oct. 1, deadline on diesel engine emissions just around the corner, there are still a number of concerns plaguing fleets, not the least of which is reliability.

To help alleviate some of these concerns, Peterbilt and Cummins are providing complimentary Cummins extended coverage for exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) engines on all new Peterbilt heavy-duty conventional vehicles.

This coverage is available for a limited time only and applies to the Cummins ISX-EGR and ISM-EGR engines, which are available for Peterbilt’s Model 387, 385, 379, 378 and 357. EGR is the technology Cummins has adopted to meet the stricter Environmental Protection Agency emissions standards. On-highway coverage includes five years or 500,000 miles on all major components and vocational coverage includes five years or 150,000 miles on all major components.

“This complimentary Cummins extended coverage will help ensure our customers have the utmost confidence in their purchase of new trucks equipped with post-October engine technology,” says Nick Panza, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar vice-president. “It is part of Peterbilt’s overall customer service strategy.”
