PACCAR to offer Cummins natural gas engine in Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks

PACCAR will work with Cummins Inc. to offer the new Cummins X15N natural gas engine in Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks. The X15N is Cummins' first natural gas engine specifically designed for heavy-duty truck applications with up to 500 horsepower. When operating on renewable natural gas the X15N engine will be able to achieve major reductions in the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions of Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks. This can range from a 90 percent reduction to carbon neutral, or even carbon negative, depending on the bio-source and waste feedstock used to produce the fuel.
