ATLANTA, Ga. — Sterling has announced it is now offering the Cummins ISL 8.9-litre engine on its Set-Forward L-Line 111-inch BBC model as well as the Set-Back L-Line 113-inch BBC model.
Sterling officials made the announcement today at the National Truck Equipment Association’s Work Truck Show. The ISL is ideal for dump, mixer, LTL and government applications, the company announced. Officials claim the new engine offers improved fuel economy and longer maintenance intervals.
The ISL comes with either 1,150 or 1,250 ft.-lb. of torque as well as a variable geometry turbocharger which improves drivability. Options include a compression brake and a rear engine power take-off.
