Cummins introduces new G-series global platforms

Niels Tholen - 20 September 2013

Cummins has announced the launch date of two new G-series global platforms which will meet a broad variety of on- and off-highway global market requirements and emission standards.

The engines, branded ISG11 and ISG12, will have a displacement of 10.5 and 11.8 liters respectively, and when launched in 2014 will comply with Euro III, IV and China NS4. Engines complying with Euro V, Euro IV and U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final are currently under development.

Steve Chapman, Cummins Vice President and Group President for China and Russia said: "This engine platform has been designed for diverse and global markets by utilizing the expertise and local knowledge of our engineers from around the world."

The engines are ideally designed for power solutions for heavy-duty long-haul trucks, regional haul and vocational service, as well as buses, motor coaches, fire trucks and recreational vehicles. The previously unveiled QSM12 engine will now be renamed QSG12 and become part of the G-series. The QSG12 uses Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) without the need for Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technology and it is believed a similar technology combination will be applied to the ISG11 and ISG12.
