Sterling Truck Corp. announced the availability of a new engine from Cummins for vocational applications at the National Truck Equipment Assns. (NTEA) Work Truck Show in Atlanta this week. The Cummins ISL, an 8.9-liter engine, is built for dump, mixer, LTL and government applications and features better fuel economy and longer maintenance intervals, according to Sterling. The engine is available for order in both the Sterling Set-Forward L-Line 111-in. BBC and the Set-Back L-Line 113-in. BBC model.
The OEM stated that the ISL offers superior power-to-weight ratios for its class and comes rated for either 1,150 or 1,250 ft-lbs. of torque as well as a variable geometry turbocharger for enhanced drivability. Options include a compression brake and an available rear engine power takeoff.
"The ISL is a great addition to our expansive engine lineup," said Richard Shearing, product strategy manager for Sterling. "With features like improved fuel economy, more power and easier maintenance, the ISL is the ideal vocational engine to power reliable, durable Sterling trucks."
