Freightliner to offer Cummins X15N natural gas engine for Cascadia

Freightliner announced that the Cummins X15N natural gas engine will be available in its Cascadia trucks.

Freightliner will offer the X15N in the Cascadia 126-in. BBC, in both sleeper and day cab configurations. Production is targeted to begin in 2025.

The X15N is designed for heavy-duty and on-highway truck applications, with 400 to 500 HP and 1,450 to 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque. According to Cummins, the X15N achieves lower NOx levels than the 2024 EPA and CARB standards.

Freightliner is working with Cummins Inc. to offer the new Cummins X15N natural gas engine in its heavy-duty Freightliner Cascadia trucks.

“We have a number of customers that continue to run natural gas trucks today and our goal is to provide those customers with the products, like the X15N, they need to operate successfully for their business,” said Greg Treinen, vice president of on-highway market development at Daimler Truck North America.

“Our end-user customers are looking for ways to achieve their sustainability goals, and the X15N is essential to our commitment to help customers reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and improve NOx,” explained José Samperio, vice president and general manager of North America on-highway at Cummins Inc. “The X15N will help long-haul fleets see improved economic and environmental performance.”
