Cummins Westport Renames Near-Zero-NOx Natural Gas Engines for 2018
Cummins Westport has renamed both of its near-zero-NOx natural gas engines for the 2018 model year. The 2018 8.9-liter engine, previously called the ISL G Near Zero engine, will be named the L9N engine. The upcoming 12-liter model will be called the ISX12N. The name change follows Cummins’ tradition of using the L and X series letters, followed by engine size. The letter N signifies a natural gas engine. Both engines are certified by the U.S. EPA and CARB as optional low-NOx engines with emissions of 0.02 g/bhp-hr or lower. The 2018 models will ship with an improved engine control module.
Cummins Westport also announced the availability of the 8.9-liter near-zero-NOx engine in Mack Trucks’ LR and TerraPro refuse trucks.
