Cummins Inc. said Sept. 16 it has developed a heavy-duty 6-cylinder engine designed for the on- and off-highway global market.
The G Series diesel engine is available in 10.5- and 11.8-liter displacements and was developed to meet international emission standards, Cummins announced in a statement.
“This engine platform has been designed for diverse and global markets by utilizing the expertise and local knowledge of our engineers from around the world,” Cummins China Inc. CEO Steve Chapman said in a statement.
According to the manufacturer, the engine’s high efficiency air handling and advanced combustion enable it to achieve near-zero emissions without the need for a cooled exhaust gas recirculation system.
The G Series production will start in early 2014 and initially be manufactured in China by the joint venture Beijing Foton Cummins Engine Co., Cummins said.
