Cummins Inc. introduced the 2017 B6.7 and L9 engines at the NTEA Work Truck Show. The B6.7 offers a 200 to 325 HP and 520 to 750 lb.-ft. ratings range. New for 2017 is an increase in fuel economy for the entire range of B6.7 ratings.

The B6.7 (pictured above left) performance ratings—280 HP to 325 HP—offer up to a 5% increase over the current product. Cummins explained that further fuel-economy improvements can be realized with innovations like the Stop-Start system, now capable on the 2017 B6.7. This technology allows the engine to operate only when necessary, saving fuel while creating a quieter ride for the driver.

The L9 (pictured above right) offers ratings from 260 to 380 HP and 720 to 1250 lb.-ft. New for 2017 is a 350 HP, 1150 lb.-ft. rating that maintains more power and torque across a wider rpm range.

“Medium-duty truck customers have made Cummins their engine manufacturer of choice due to the unparalleled uptime they have experienced with our B and L Series engines. This is the legacy that Cummins has created over nearly a century of engine innovation and more than 30 years of B Series and L Series availability,” said Brett Merritt, Cummins’ executive director of on-highway business. “And that’s why Cummins is redefining classics by introducing the newest-generation B and L Series engines—the B6.7 and L9.”
