“I am proud of the innovative, hard work that has gone into this
game-changing engine platform, and we are excited to see these important
products rolling off the line,” said
“The X15 engines are a sign of what is to come from Cummins. We are firmly focused on understanding the industry trends that are shaping our markets and anticipating the future to develop innovative products and solutions that maximize our customers’ success. A result of this is the X15, which provides customers with improved quality, performance and fuel-economy, while reducing emissions and the environmental footprint. At the core, it’s simple, we win in the marketplace by seeing the future first and beating the competition to it. At Cummins, this is what we mean by innovation you can depend on.”
The new X15 builds on the current ISX15 product with the implementation of an optimized compression ratio, air handling system and combustion process to increase both fuel efficiency and performance capability. Customers will realize big savings through lower operating costs with up to 20% better fuel economy and 40% lower maintenance costs than 2010 ISX15 engines. With the two separate engine platforms in 2017, the Cummins X15 marks a new era in trucking by allowing customers to optimize their engine to best meet their needs without compromise.
Every X15 also comes factory-ready to connect to a capable telematics system that enables Over-the-Air (OTA) engine programming, customization, and diagnostics. With Connected Solutions, drivers and fleet managers can manage their vehicle, make quick decisions remotely and even update an engine with the latest calibration without having to bring it to a service bay.
The X15 Performance Series is rated at 485 to 605 horsepower and provides an ideal power match for heavy-haul, vocational and emergency vehicles with a peak torque of up to 2050 lb-ft delivered across a wide engine rpm range, and up to 600 horsepower engine braking at 2100 rpm. For line-haul and regional-haul applications, the X15 Efficiency Series offers an unmatched level of fuel efficiency and payload productivity, with a 400 to 500 horsepower ratings range and up to 1850 lb-ft of peak torque available at 1000 rpm.
