Kenworth to Add Heavy Duty Cummins Westport ISX12 G To Complete Line of Natural Gas Engines
Better Roads Staff
Douglas said environmental stewardship, which can be an important factor for truck operators in attracting new business, provides another reason why the ISX12 G promises to be a popular choice. The engine will allow truck operators to meet current and future environmental regulations more easily. When the ISX12 G is launched next year, Cummins Westport expects it to be certified to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board emission standards of 0.20 g/bhp-hr NOx and 0.01 g/bhp-hr PM. The engine is expected to be capable of meeting EURO VI and pending U.S. greenhouse gas and fuel economy regulations, he added.
