Cummins X15™ Wins Major Industry Awards

The Cummins X15 Efficiency Series diesel has been recognized with two major industry awards: the Truck Writers of North America’s (TWNA) 2016 Technical Achievement Award, and being named one of Heavy Duty Trucking’s Top 20 Products for 2017. These awards show why your customers made Cummins the Heavy-Duty market-share leader again in 2016.

TWNA 2016 Technical Achievement Award

The TWNA presentation was made during an awards ceremony at the ATA Technology & Maintenance Council’s annual meeting in Nashville. “It is an honor that Cummins has been recognized for our innovation on the 2017 X15 Efficiency Series engine, especially because it comes from professionals who Cummins greatly respects, many of whom have been able to experience firsthand the enhanced drivability and responsive performance of the X15 engine,” said Mario Sanchez, Director – On-Highway Marketing Communications, upon accepting the award.

“Cummins redesigned the ISX15 to meet 2017 federal greenhouse gas and fuel-economy requirements, and introduced two distinctly different models, called the X15 Performance and X15 Efficiency Series Engines,” said John Baxter, a freelance technical writer, former mechanic and a member of the TWNA panel. “We congratulate Cummins on the originality of their redesign of the X15.”

Heavy Duty Trucking’s Top 20 Products for 2017

At the end of the year, Heavy Duty Trucking editors identify the very best of the past year’s introductions based on their level of innovation, ability to address significant industry issues and potential benefit to a truck fleet’s bottom line. Then, readers weigh in on the selections to help determine their Top 20 Products. The Cummins X15 made this select list on the basis of its improved fuel economy, increased maintenance intervals, Single Module™ aftertreatment system and enhanced drivability.

While the recognition from the press is always a great third-party endorsement, the real proof of performance, reliability and quality is truly measured by repeat-purchase loyalty from customers such as yours. In 2016, Cummins X15 engines were once again the market-share leader in Class 8 heavy-duty trucks.
