Cummins intros 2020 X15 Effectivity Sequence engines alongside new Productiveness Sequence ranking
Cummins for the approaching mannequin 12 months will develop its X15 portfolio with a brand new X15 Effectivity Sequence engine and the brand new X15 Productiveness Sequence ranking to additional optimize gas financial system and energy.
The 2020 X15 Effectivity Sequence engine, Cummins mentioned, delivers as much as 5 % higher gas financial system than the prior X15 Effectivity Sequence, and can characteristic an industry-leading upkeep schedule, together with an oil-drain interval of as much as 75,000 miles. The brand new X15 Productiveness Sequence providing, by way of its broad vary of scores, will have the ability to serve extra markets.
Energy scores vary from 400 horsepower to 500 horsepower, whereas torque ranges from 1,450 lb-ft to 1,850 lb-ft.
“The brand new 2020 X15 Effectivity Sequence engine gives improved gas financial system and additional reduces greenhouse gasoline emissions,” mentioned Brett Merritt, Vice President – On-Freeway Engine Enterprise at Cummins. “That’s why we’re bringing our new X15 Effectivity Sequence engine and X15 Productiveness Sequence providing to the market a 12 months forward of regulation necessities.”
Engine enhancements to the Effectivity Sequence present higher air dealing with and decrease friction, delivering as much as 3.5 % gas financial system enhancements to the bottom engine providing, Cummins mentioned. Decrease oil consumption is predicted with modified liner geometry within the energy cylinder and valve changes have been made to enhance sturdiness.
Cummins has pushed its oil drain interval (ODI) to as much as 75,000 miles for the 2020 X15 in 2020 and ODI of as much as 80,000 miles is offered to prospects utilizing Valvoline Premium Blue 15W-40. Clients utilizing Cummins’ OilGuard program have the potential to extend to a 100,000-mile ODI.
The brand new EX scores provided within the X15 Effectivity Sequence convey expanded powertrain capabilities that may ship as much as a further 1.5 % gas effectivity improve on high of the enhancements gained by way of base engine and have enhancements. These scores comprise the complete suite of powertrain options, together with not solely all prior ADEPT options, however new capabilities corresponding to predictive gear shifting, predictive braking, on-ramp increase and dynamic energy.
Powertrain options within the EX scores can be found completely with the X15 Effectivity Sequence engine when paired with the Eaton Cummins Endurant transmission.
The X15 Productiveness Sequence scores are designed for multi-purpose, vocational and heavy-haul prospects who search to stability powertrain effectivity with response and efficiency. Particular purposes embrace concrete mixers, refuse automobiles and enormous dump vans.
Energy scores vary from 430 hp to 605 hp, whereas torque ranges from 1,650 lb-ft to 2,050 lb-ft. Cummins says its Productiveness Sequence engines have a better output capability than some other 15-liter engine.
The introduction of the Productiveness Sequence brings six new scores to market in 2020 together with the inclusion of 4 former Efficiency Sequence scores.
The Productiveness Sequence providing is comprised of two completely different engine units, frequent with both the 2020 X15 Effectivity Sequence or the X15 Efficiency Sequence.
The Cummins X15 Efficiency Sequence will see no modifications for subsequent mannequin 12 months, and can characteristic seven scores, with 4 former Efficiency Sequence scores shifting to the Productiveness Sequence providing.
