Cummins Inc. and Navistar
International Corp. have extended their engine supply agreement for
class 8 on-highway diesel engines through 2013. The agreement provides
for the ongoing supply of Cummins ISL, ISM and ISX engines for use in
International brand class 8 trucks.
As part of the long-term agreement, beginning in 2010, Cummins will
be Navistar’s exclusive supplier for 15- and 16-liter big bore diesel
engines (Cummins ISX) for Navistar’s International trucks in North
As previously announced, Cummins will meet the 2010 EPA
requirements on its heavy-duty engines without aftertreatment for
oxides of nitrogen (NOx). Cummins engines in 2010 will incorporate an
integrated technology solution that includes the XPI High Pressure
Common Rail (HPCR) fuel system, next generation Cooled Exhaust Gas
Recirculation (EGR), advanced electronic controls, proven air handling
and the Cummins Particulate Filter. Cummins leads the U.S. on-highway
truck market with cooled EGR technology, which reduces emissions and
NOx. The next generation EGR does not add complexity to the vehicle,
yet power, torque, fuel economy and maintenance intervals will remain
the same as today. Cummins engines will be fully certified and
compliant to the near-zero EPA 2010 emissions standards.
