Cummins Launches All New B-Series Engine
On March 1st at the World Truck Show, Cummins Inc. took the trucking world by storm after announcing 3 new products, led by the all new 2017 B6.7 diesel engine which adds to the manufacturer’s well renowned lineup of B-Series engines.
At the show, another one of the three products unveiled by Cummins is the 2017 L9 which is the sister engine of B6.7, whose ratings are from 720 pounds-ft to 1,250 pounds-ft and 260hp to 380hp. The last product they unveiled was the 2017 single module after-treatment. This product has brought a prominent reduction in terms of size.
With stop to start ability and 7% better mileage, the B6.7 provides a ratings range of 520 pounds-ft-to-750 and 200hp to 325hp
Ever since the inception of the B-series engine way back in 1984 when it was launched, Cummins has produced more than 11.2 million engines.
Srikanth Padmanabhan, the vice president of the Cummins’ engine business (B-Series engine), believes that the engine is the American trucking market’s very own blue jeans.
The single module after-treatment, which is a client-driven design according to the company, mixes selective systems for catalytic reduction, a filter for diesel particulate, and a catalyst for diesel oxidation, within one canister.
According to Cummins, every single one of the new products will come equipped with connected diagnostics. This will have the ability to send out reports regarding the engine’s health to the cell phone of the driver. Cummins believes this will offer peace of mind as well as the most capable and largest support network across North America. – See more at: http://truckernews.com/cummins-launches-all-new-bseries-engine-p748-90.htm#sthash.S3Bng1gs.dpuf
