X12 Powertrain For Regional Haul

Cummins announced its X12+Endurant powertrain from its Integrated Power portfolio is now available for customers in regional haul applications. The lightweight powertrain can be now be ordered in Freightliner’s new Cascadia 116 in. bbc day cab truck.
This is a new market for the X12 engine, which had previously only been available in vocational and refuse truck applications.

“The X12+Endurant powertrain’s lightweight, yet durable design allows customers to maximize their payload for each and every job,” said Amy Boerger, vice president – Engine Business Sales for Cummins. “We wanted to create the optimal powertrain solution for customers with weight-sensitive applications, and we are confident this is it.”

At just over 2700 lb., the X12 paired with the Eaton Cummins Endurant transmission is expected to be to be the lightest powertrain available for the Class 8 on-highway market. It is designed to be a match for weight-sensitive duties such as bulk and regional haul applications.

“We are thrilled that the X12 will now be available in the Freightliner Cascadia 116 bbc model,” said Paul Rosa, Penske Truck Leasing senior vice president of procurement and fleet planning. “This new offering makes for a great weight-conscious solution and will be a nice option for our customers.”

Expanded availability of the X12 comes as Cummins is expanding maintenance intervals for the platform. Oil-drain intervals are now up to 75,000 miles, and those that participate in Cummins OilGuard program may see extensions of up to 100,000 miles. The Endurant transmission offers a 750,000 mile lube change interval and a maintenance-free clutch.

The day cab Cascadia with the Cummins X12 and Eaton Cummins Endurant begins production mid-2020. The Freightliner Cascadia is also available with the Cummins X15 Efficiency series engine and the Eaton Cummins Endurant in the 126 in. bbc day cab and sleeper models.
