COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins Inc. today announced details about its plans for the Columbus-built 5-liter, V8 diesel engine for use in commercial vehicles.
The company in August said it would begin producing the engines for Nissan pickup trucks, but also use them in commercial uses such as school buses, vans and recreational vehicles.
The ISV5.0 extends Cummins’ range of clean-diesel engines for North American vehicles, and features industry-leading technology that delivers performance and a low total cost of ownership to customers, the company announced in a press release today.
“The ISV5.0 represents the next dimension in fuel economy and performance as Cummins continues to broaden our on-highway product line,” said Dave Crompton, Cummins Vice President and General Manager – Engine Business.
The first engines will be produced in the fourth quarter of 2014, adding as many as 500 new jobs, Cummins said.
