Cummins X12 Engine Now Available for Freightliner 114SD

Recommended Posts

Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT)  /  December 10, 2018

Cummins has announced that the company’s lightest engine for Class 8 trucks, the Cummins X12, is now available for Freightliner’s 114SD chassis.

Now available for order at Freightliner, the X12 engine weighs only 2,050 pounds and boasts up to 500 horsepower and 1,700 lbs.-ft. of torque. It has been optimized for the Freightliner 114SD chassis for vocational applications like concrete mixers and dump trucks.

“Cummins is excited about the positive impact our X12 will have in weight-sensitive markets,” said Brett Merritt, vice president − Cummins on-highway engine business. “We believe that the Cummins X12 in Freightliner’s 114SD truck will be an exceptional option for vocational customers.”

With its lighter weight, the Cummins X12 provides fleets with an option that can optimize productivity by reducing the unloaded weight of a vehicle while still providing suitable power for the job. Less weight can also mean more upfitting options, a benefit to both end customers and truck equipment manufacturer partners. The X12 also has a low-friction design for improved fuel economy and extended maintenance intervals similar to the Cummins X15 engine, as well as the company’s commitment to high mileage use and uptime.

“By adding the Cummins X12 to our engine portfolio, we give the already versatile 114SD yet another option, showing our commitment to providing customers a choice,” said Kelly Gedert, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks and Detroit Components.
