Meet the Drivers – Cummins Redefining Tour

Redefining Tour Image- February 2016The Cummins Redefining Tour drivers spent this past summer going from one end of North America to the other – a combined total of 75,000 miles. They also were our greatest ambassadors on the road. Here is a brief introduction to the drivers, and their feelings about the advanced technology in the Redefining Tour trucks:

  • Frank Madril – Serving a dual function as both Tour Lead and driver, Frank was behind the wheel of a truck featuring the 2017 Cummins ISX15 under the hood and hauling the show trailer, which contained our technology showcase. Frank noted that his truck “had the 2017 engine with the performance package, and the fuel mileage was phenomenal in a truck with more power than anything I’ve driven in my life.”
  • Bob Stanton – Bob shared the Tour Lead as well as driving duties. His reaction after spending months with these Cummins-powered trucks was absolute: “I’ve been a Cummins fan most of my life, but I was blown away by what you guys put into the motor. I’m a bigger Cummins fan than ever.”
  • Tonya Crawford – Tonya drove a truck equipped with the 2015 ISX15 with the SmartAdvantage™ Powertrain. She was most impressed with the fuel savings: “I figure that if I can get one mile more per gallon, that’s an extra 285 miles per fuel-up. That’s an impressive money savings – and all you need to sell these engines.”
  • Mike Carlson – Mike went the entire distance in a truck powered by a 2017 ISX15 engine with the SmartAdvantage Powertrain, and driver fatigue was never an issue. “Never at any time did I feel like I could do a better job of driving the truck than it could do on its own. When I was climbing a mountain at 65 mph and the cruise was set, I could just let it do its thing.”
  • Tracy Crawford – The truck piloted by Tracy was equipped with a 2015 version of the ISX15 with the SmartAdvantage Powertrain. He noted that having an automated transmission helps make everything run smoother. “The engine is not getting beaten up, because with the SmartAdvantage setup, it’s working itself as easy as it can.”
