New Service Programs For Cummins ISX15 Diesels
By Mike Brezonick01 February 2016
Cummins Inc. announced two enhancements for the heavy-duty ISX15 engine that the Columbus, Ind. manufacturer said are designed to increase customers' equipment residual value and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO).
The two enhancements, an extended diesel particulate filter (DPF) ash cleaning interval and the Encore Xtra protection plan. Cummins said the 2016 ISX15 is capable of an extended DPF ash cleaning interval reaching up to 500,000 miles (804,672 km) for conventional linehaul applications with fuel economy greater than 5.5 miles per gallon. Cummins said it achieved this extended interval through design enhancements that reduced oil consumption and ash accumulation.
Cummins has also announced the introduction of Encore Xtra, a new in-service extended protection plan available for 2010 and 2013 ISX12 and ISX15 engines. The plan must be registered by 6 years/650,000 miles and after any current extended coverage has expired. While traditional Encore plans have only been available to used-truck buyers, Encore Xtra is also available to the first owner in recognition of some customers' longer trade cycles, Cummins said.
