Cummins Inc. introduces diesel engine designed to be 2027 EPA and CARB compliant


This week, Cummins Inc. announced the launch of its “most efficient heavy-duty diesel engine ever,” designed for the North American heavy-duty on-highway market.

On February 29, Indiana-headquartered Cummins introduced the next generation X15 diesel engine designed to be compliant with U.S. EPA and CARB 2027 aligned regulations when it launches.

The company says that the X15 will “feature improved greenhouse gas and fuel efficiency benefits while retaining the same ratings of the current X15 (up to 605 horsepower and 2,050 ft-lb of torque).” It uses a “belt-driven, high output 48-volt alternator and aftertreatment heater solution, optimized for increasingly stringent emission standards.”

The new X15 diesel engine is part of the Cummins HELM™ 15-liter fuel agnostic platform. The engine will be built at a plant in Jamestown, New York.

“We have applied our decades of experience with the X15 to our next-generation product and believe these investments will serve our customers well into the future. The next generation X15 is the next evolution of technology, truly proving to the world that we never stop innovating,” said José Samperio, Vice President, North America On-Highway at Cummins. “We are working hard to ensure the new product delivers our brand promise to customers for the important jobs they need to do every day.”

“This new architecture expands on the legacy of the X15 engine. All teams involved recognize how important this product is and what it means for both Cummins and our customers’ future as the base architecture will carry us through the horizon of diesel technology and alternate fuels,” said Jonathon White, Vice President, Engine Business Engineering, Cummins.
