Cummins X12™ Named Top 20 Product for 2018 by HDT Magazine

Heavy-Duty Trucking (HDT) magazine’s Top 20 Products list is judged according to three critical areas: Innovation, Addressing Industry Issues and Potential to Affect a Fleet’s Bottom Line. Last year, Cummins X15™ made the list − this year, the 2018 X12 joins it. Targeted at vocational, regional and weight-sensitive bulk-haul applications, the X12 is 600 lb lighter than the closest 13-liter engine and 150 lb lighter than the closest 11-liter engine.

The engine weight of just 2,050 lb was achieved by eliminating unnecessary mass without compromising performance. Delivering up to 500 hp (373 kW), the X12 has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any heavy-duty engine from 10-liters to 16-liters in size.

The X12 uses the Single Module™ aftertreatment system, which eliminates up to 40 percent of the aftertreatment weight. The compact packaging offers improved thermal management, with fewer regenerations, reduced maintenance, improved performance and a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) while meeting 2017 greenhouse gas (GHG) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) fuel economy regulations.

Further weight reduction can be achieved by pairing the X12 with Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission™ Technologies’ Endurant™ transmission, which was also awarded a spot on HDT magazine’s Top 20 Products for 2018 list.
