Cummins' VGT Turbocharger cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Cummins Emission Solutions Aftertreatment System, featuring a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), "result in near-zero oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) emissions while delivering better performance and fuel economy," he said.
"Cummins has integrated the latest technologies in the ISV5.0 to deliver performance, fuel efficiency and durability in a highly sociable package. Every day, drivers will appreciate the smooth, quiet operation of the ISV5.0.
"In addition," Katzenmeyer said, "the fuel savings offered by the ISV5.0 result in fewer greenhouse gas emissions – a great environmental benefit."
Cummins ISV5.0 will serve customers in the United States and Canada, and will be certified to the near-zero NOx and PM emissions levels required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
At launch, it will also meet greenhouse gas (GHG) requirements through 2016 and 2015 Air Resources Board (ARB) standards, including on-board diagnostics.
Cummins plans to begin production of its new ISV5.0 V8 diesel engine in the last quarter of 2014, said Jeff Caldwell - Cummins general manager, global pickup business.
The ISV5.0, along with the 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel for pickup trucks, will be manufactured at Cummins Engine Plant in Columbus, Ind., on a newly built, dedicated production line.
"Our customers want the ISV5.0 engine to come with the world-class service network and customer support that Cummins already provides to them," said Jeff Jones, Cummins vice president - North American Engine Business. "The support of this engine will easily be integrated into Cummins distributors and authorized dealer shops, and into customer operations with fleets that are running the broad range of dependable Cummins power."
Cummins Care is available 24/7/365, free of charge, for all Cummins engines, by calling 1-800-DIESELS (1-800-343-7357).
"Built on Cummins strong commitment to customer support, the Cummins Care team is prepared to answer all operational questions on topics such as fuel and oil specifications and maintenance intervals, and can assist customers with finding the nearest authorized and available service location," he pointed out.
"Customers also have access to the largest and most capable service network in the United States and Canada, with over 3,500 locations.”
