Deeper Into the Woods

More from the “I told you so department:” Thursday, (August 1, 2012) Navistar announced in its guidance for the quarter ending July 31 that, as I predicted a month ago, it will indeed be offering Cummins ISX15 as part of its volte-face on compliance with EPA2010. To quote the guidance statement: “As part of the expanded relationship with Cummins Inc., Navistar plans to offer the Cummins ISX15 engine in certain models, expanding the company's vehicle lineup and on-highway market opportunity. Navistar plans to introduce the Cummins ISX15 engine as a part of its North American on-highway truck line-up beginning in January 2013.”

Navistar spokesman Steve Schrier told Transport Topics that the initial availability of Cummins power will be in International ProStar, PayStar 5900 and 9900 Series.
