Cummins entire lineup of on-highway engines for truck, bus, RV and specialty-vehicle markets will enter production on Jan. 2, 2013. All engines are expected to be certified a full year early to the 2014 greenhouse gas and fuel-efficiency rules.

The EPA 2013 regulations require the same near-zero emission levels of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM) as were required beginning in 2010. The new greenhouse gas and fuel-efficiency regulations will be required for all heavy-duty diesel and natural gas engines beginning in January 2014.

On-Board Diagnostics, which were introduced on the ISX15 in 2010, are also required across the full on-highway product line in 2013. On-Board Diagnostics will provide enhanced service capability with standardized diagnostic trouble codes, service tool interface, in-cab warning lamp and service information availability.

Cummins Care will be available for all EPA 2013 certified engines, including natural gas engines, and is available free of charge. As part of the total value that Cummins offers customers, coupled with its strong commitment to customer support, Cummins Care provides a trusted information source for questions regarding the latest engine and product technology.
