EATON/CWI ANNOUNCE AUTOMATED TRANSMISSION FOR SI NATURAL GAS ENGINES
This week, Eaton and Cummins Westport announced an integrated powertrain package for the Cummins Westport ISX12 G natural gas engine that will provide customers with the first automated transmission to be paired with a spark-ignited natural gas engine in the North American market. The powertrain will combine an Eaton UltraShift PLUS automated transmission with the Cummins Westport ISX12 G engine. Speaking at a media event at the American Trucking Associations’ annual Technology & Maintenance Council meeting, executives said this product announcement is a continuation of the long-standing collaboration between Eaton and Cummins, and builds upon the
announcement one year ago of the SmartAdvantage Powertrain package for the Cummins ISX15 diesel engine.
