Autocar to offer Cummins X12 engine

Cummins X12 Engine

Cummins Inc. announced that starting in the fourth quarter of this year, Autocar, an American manufacturer of severe-duty, cab-over-engine vocational trucks, will introduce the X12 in its ACX(r) model.

“With its best-in-class power-to-weight ratio, Cummins believes that the X12 engine will be well suited to address the needs of the refuse market as well as other weight sensitive vocational applications,” said Brett Merrit, vice president of the Cummins on-highway engine business. “Autocar is a key player in the North America refuse market and this introduction will further our current collaboration across diesel and natural gas platforms.”

“Autocar is focused on bringing innovations to the market with real, tangible benefits to our customers,” said Jim Johnston, president of Autocar. “This new engine puts more cash in our customers’ pockets, plain and simple. We’re gratified that Cummins trusts us to bring the X12 engine to the refuse market first.”

Specs of the X12 engine include a weight of 2,050 lbs., a rating of up to 500 HP and the inclusion of Cummins’ Single Module aftertreatment system. Read more about the X12 engine here.
