Cummins X12 sets new standards for productivity in regional-haul, vocational and intermodal truck applications with performance that is not just unchallenged – it’s unbeatable. Smaller in size – at least 150 pounds lighter than the next closest competitive engine and up to 600 pounds lighter than other medium bore engines – the X12 still delivers powerful performance from 350 hp to 500 hp and 1250 to 1700 lb-ft of peak torque. At just 2,050 pounds, it has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any heavy-duty engine from 10 liters to 16 liters in size. The combination of power and efficiency lets you gear the X12 to pass traffic in the left lane and still have plenty of fuel left in the tank for every job.
Better In The Short Haul. And Over The Long Haul.
Regional-haulers can expect their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to drop significantly with the X12. A low-friction design increases fuel economy while extended maintenance intervals and high mileage. Plus, extensive real-world testing ensures maximum uptime. Less time in the shop lets you earn more money on the road.
Run Quicker. Deliver More.
The X12 delivers exceptional throttle response for inner-city stop-and-go operations, especially when paired with an automated manual transmission. Its compact size enables shorter bumper-to-back of cab (BBC) dimensions for improved maneuverability. A new Cummins engine brake improves stopping power and lengthens service brake life. Drivers will really like the way the X12 performs, whether the traffic light is turning green or red. To learn more about Cummins X12 download our brochure or go to cumminsengines.com.
