Caterpillar will offer a special coverage program on all 2007-model Cat engines with Acert technology in the U.S. and Canada during the first half of 2007 for commercial on-highway service. Cat will extend this coverage only to engines purchased and delivered between January 1, 2007 and June 30, 2007.
The program, called Caterpillar Pure Confidence, has two parts: extended service coverage (ESC) and Cat on-time promise. ESC offers full parts and labor coverage on covered engine and emission components for three years/300,000 miles on all C9, C13 and C15 engines and three years/150,000 miles on all C7 engines. Cat said it will reimburse the user for a rental vehicle to get the load to a destination on time if a 2007-model Cat engine requires repairs that would keep the vehicle out of service for more than 24 hours.
According to Cat, the more than 100 pre-production engines being tested by 56 fleets are demonstrating “excellent reliability” and nearly identical fuel economy to ’06 engines.
“Cat has nearly 12 million test miles on our 2007 pre-production engines, and customers who are operating them tell us that they’re as reliable and fuel efficient as Cat engines have always been,” said George Taylor, director and gm of Caterpillar On-Highway Engine Business.
