"The marriage of the best performing Class 8 tractor on the market, with our new, SCR-based MaxxForce 13 creates a winning combination in our portfolio," said Allen. "Providing drivers and fleets with a wide-breadth of SCR-based engine solutions is just one of the ways we're ensuring that customers get a complete lineup of reliable, high-quality products they can drive with confidence."
This announcement comes just four months after the first ProStar equipped with the Cummins ISX15 with SCR rolled off the production line. Despite aggressive quality testing requirements and a quick timetable, the Cummins ISX15 hit all key rollout dates ahead of schedule. More than 1,000 ProStars with ISX15 units have been shipped to date. Initial customer feedback has been very positive, with many fleets noting its superior power characteristics, quiet ride and excellent fuel economy.
