Volvo Trucks North America announced Feb. 4 that it will offer the 15-liter Cummins ISX engine certified for 2010 emissions standards in the Volvo VN. This is an extension of an existing agreement between Volvo and Cummins Inc.
“Our customers have indicated a desire to have both the Cummins ISX and the Volvo engine family available in 2010,” says Per Carlsson, president and chief executive officer of Volvo Trucks North America. “Cummins remains a valued partner of Volvo, and our customers will continue to benefit from our comprehensive engine lineup of Volvo’s 11-, 13- and 16-liter engines, plus the 15-liter ISX.”
“We’re pleased to build on our partnership with Volvo Trucks North America and offer the 2010 ISX heavy-duty engine in the VN truck lineup,” says Jim Kelly, Engine Business president for Cummins.
“Volvo and Cummins have a strong legacy of serving the needs of our mutual customers in the North American truck market, and this agreement allows us to extend that legacy well into the future,” says Ed Pence, Heavy-Duty Engine Business vice president and general manager for Cummins.
