COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins has a new 350-hp rating for its ISL engine, aimed at the 4×2 short-haul truck market.

The new engine rating, with 1050lb-ft of torque, has been developed in conjunction with Allison Transmission to optimize the engine/drivetrain package and deliver substantial weight savings for increased productivity.

“The combination of the Cummins ISL 350 and the smooth-running Allison MD3066 automatic transmission delivers weight savings up to 800lb — which is less than any competitive package for this market,” says Cummins director of specialty markets Chuck Goode.

“The result is a high-value package for our customers in the 4×2 short-haul market.”

The ISL is a fully electronic in-line 6-cylinder diesel engine capable of providing ample power and excellent fuel economy, as well as electronics that make servicing the engine easy, the company says.
