COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins Inc. has announced that its ISC and ISL engines will deliver increased performance and enhanced reliability to its customers in the medium-duty and vocational truck markets.

Cummins ISC and ISL engines feature a new High-Pressure Common-Rail (HPCR) fuel system resulting in increased performance, lower emissions and noise reduction by more than 30 percent.

“We have taken two excellent products – our popular and proven ISC and ISL – and made them even better,” said Cummins executive director – marketing Tom Kieffer. “With these engines, medium-duty and vocational truck customers will see an increase in performance and reliability while benefiting from lower operating costs.”

The new HPCR system gives the ISC and ISL multi-injection capability, reduced noise and emissions, and improved cold starting. Multiple-injection events spread combustion out, reducing engine noise by more than 30 percent. The common-rail design maintains high injection pressures regardless of engine rpm, for exceptional performance across the entire power range.

The ISC and ISL have over three million miles of field-testing, and they ISC and ISL use the same Electronic Control Module and software as all Cummins engines, with all the latest diagnostics, prognostics, maintenance monitoring as well as anti-theft, engine protection and engine shutdown features as standard equipment.
