Cummins 2.8L TD Engine Powers Concept Vehicle

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
.

CUMMINS DIESEL ENGINE REVEALED IN NISSAN CONCEPT TRUCK
.
Concept 2.8L Turbo Diesel Unveiled At Chicago Auto Show Further Demonstrates Cummins Commitment To Innovation For The Pickup Truck Market
.
CHICAGO (Feb. 6, 2014) - Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) and Nissan (NSANY) unveiled a technical study called the Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner - Powered by Cummins™ at the Chicago Auto Show. The heart of this vehicle is a concept 2.8L turbo diesel engine - developed at the Cummins Technical Center in Columbus, Ind. - that produces approximately 200 hp and over 350 lb-ft of torque. This concept 2.8L has been matched with a Nissan Frontier Desert Runner 4x2 in a project to evaluate the viability of this package for North America.
.
Cummins has been powering pickup trucks around the world for over 25 years, with engines including the B3.9, 5.9 and 6.7-liter Turbo Diesels. The 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel for the next-generation Nissan Titan and the ISF2.8, used in markets outside the United States, are the latest production engines to power the pickup truck market.
The custom Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner - Powered by Cummins on display is one of two trucks specially repowered by Cummins to demonstrate the latest in diesel capabilities.
.
"These trucks really highlight modern clean-diesel engine characteristics, with the durability and power that Cummins customers have come to depend on," said Dave Crompton, Cummins Vice President and General Manager - Engine Business. "The Nissan Frontier is a great platform to demonstrate the potential of a Cummins-powered compact pickup for the U.S. market, and this project will help to gauge market reaction and evaluate future plans."
.
In addition to these 2.8L-powered concept trucks and the new 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel for the next-generation Titan, Cummins, Johnson Matthey and Nissan have partnered on the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) ATLAS research project. The cost-shared research program is instrumental in developing new diesel engine and emissions-control technology to meet future emissions regulations and demanding fuel-economy requirements while delivering Cummins performance and durability.

Arrow Small Block Diesel

Could engines like these be your choice to power your next tow vehicle. Although Cummins is showing their 2.8L engine, GM has an entire factory dedicated, Tonawanda, toward the manufacture of small block diesels.

Small block perhaps but if economy is important to you these new engines may be an option for you to consider.
