Sterling Truck Corp. announced that its Sterling Set-Back 113 with Natural Gas (NG) brochure now is available at www.sterlingtrucks.com/naturalgas. Launched in May, the Set-Back 113 with NG has the lowest emissions in the industry without sacrificing top-level performance and efficiency, according to the Redford, Mich.-based truck maker.
The Set-Back 113 with NG, part of the company’s Clean Drive Technologies, is powered by the Cummins Westport ISL G, which already meets Environmental Protection Agency 2010 standards and has 85 percent lower NOx emissions than the C Gas Plus engine, Sterling says; the ISL G also features a maintenance-free exhaust system with a three-way catalyst (TWC) and lower lifecycle costs.
The Set-Back 113 with NG, a Class 7-8 truck, now is available for less-than-truckload and distribution applications. Currently in development, the truck also will be configured for the government, construction, pickup-and-delivery and utility applications.
Natural gas technology can save an estimated $6,000 in annual fuel and operating costs per truck, according to Sterling, and customers in states such as California also will benefit from tax incentives for alternative fuel vehicles.
