Navistar International Corp. said Thursday it will begin offering 15-liter Cummins engines in some of its International brand trucks and will incorporate Cummins’ urea-based aftertreatment into its MaxxForce engines.
Navistar plans to introduce the Cummins ISX15 engine to its North American truck lineup starting in January, company spokesman Steve Schrier told Transport Topics.
The truck and engine maker said the use of Cummins’ selective catalytic reduction, or SCR, system in its existing MaxxForce engines will accelerate delivery of Navistar’s previously announced next-generation engine technology, dubbed In-Cylinder Technology Plus.
Navistar, which announced an SCR engine technology path last month, also withdrew its full-year earnings forecast, Bloomberg reported, citing a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.
Navistar said it expects the new engines to meet Environmental Protection Agency’s 2010 emissions regulations and position the company to meet greenhouse gas rules in advance of 2014 and 2017 requirements.
