Freightliner Trucks Adds to Gas Product Options

Freightliner Trucks said that the Cummins Westport ISX12 G heavy-duty natural gas engine will be available as a factory-installed option for the Freightliner 114SD severe duty truck model in 2015.

The 114SD-ISX12 G combination will be ideal for the demanding jobs that the 114SD is designed for, such as mixer, crane and sewer vac. The 12-liter ISX12 G heavy-duty natural gas engine features ratings of up to 400 hp and 1,450-lb-ft torque, and operates on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The 114SD has been available with natural gas with the 9-liter Cummins Westport ISL G engine since 2011. With the upcoming availability of the ISX12 G, fleets can get the horsepower and torque ratings they need to meet the toughest of applications.
