Western Star Trucks Sales Inc announced the availability of the Cummins ISX15 EPA 2010 engine for the North American market. Combined with Detroit Diesel's powertrain options, the Cummins ISX15 completes a full line of engine systems that meet the demand for Western Star customers.
The Cummins ISX15 offers 400 to 600 hp and 1,450 to 2,050 lb-ft of torque, resulting in power and performance that will benefit Western Star vocational and on-highway applications.
Built for dependability and long-range durability, the ISX15 features one of the lowest operating costs in its class. The engine's XPI common-rail fuel system delivers a precise quantity of fuel at ultra-high pressures. When combined with the reduced restriction of the air-handling system, the new EPA 2010 version of the Cummins ISX15 will provide up to a 5% improvement in fuel economy.
Similar to its Detroit Diesel counterparts, the Cummins ISX15 is ready to meet EPA 2010 engine regulations with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. Cummins SCR technology also uses diesel exhaust fluid to achieve NOx emissions at near-zero levels.
Western Star customers will also benefit from the Cummins support network, which has approximately 3,500 service locations across North America.
The Cummins ISX15 is available to order now, with production in March 2010 for ratings less than 500 hp and July 2010 for ratings more than 500 hp.
