Daimler Trucks North America expands engine offerings to include Detroit Diesel, Cummins
Jul 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Daimler Trucks North America will offer a full line of its own Detroit Diesel engines, as well as Cummins heavy- and medium-duty engines, across its Freightliner, Sterling, Western Star, and Thomas Built buses vehicle range.
The Detroit Diesel DD15, at 14.8L displacement, was launched in October 2007 as the first in a complete line of all new heavy-duty diesel engines that will ultimately power Daimler Truck offerings around the world. The DD15 uses turbo compounding and amplified common rail fuel injection to achieve superior power and fuel economy. More variants, at 12.8L (DD13) and 15.6L (DD16) will be introduced at intervals over the coming months, and will supplant current Detroit Diesel and Mercedes-Benz heavy-duty engine offerings.
The 14.8L ISX heavy-duty diesel engine manufactured by Cummins will round out the options in Freightliner, Sterling, and Western Star Class 8 trucks in the post-EPA10 era. Cummins is Daimler Trucks North America's exclusive external engine partner in the supply of medium-duty ISB, ISC, and ISL engines for Freightliner trucks and chassis, Sterling trucks, and Thomas Built buses in Classes 5-7.
The Cummins ISX in EPA07 trim will be available in the recently introduced Freightliner Cascadia model, for delivery in January 2009. E-mail Amy Sills at email@example.com for complete information.
