Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) launched its 2015 Redefining Tour on Saturday June 13th, 2015, a coast-to-coast mobile tour showcasing both current and future technologies. The Redefining Tour visited 34 cities across the United States and Canada between June 13th and Oct. 6th, providing customers an up-close and personal opportunity to view Cummins products and technology solutions.
The Cummins Redefining Tour featured five Class-8 truck-and-trailer combinations representing major Class-8 OEM brands that traveled cross-country to each stop. The vehicles were powered by a combination of the ISX15 engine, the Cummins Eaton® SmartAdvantage™ Powertrain, and the 2017 ISX15 engine with the Single Module aftertreatment system. Additionally, the vehicles featured specifications catering to both fuel-efficiency- and high-performance-oriented customers. One of the key highlights of the caravan is the interactive show trailer that was on display for customers to walk though and explore. This expansive show trailer featured three additional engines: the ISB6.7, the Cummins Westport ISX12 G natural gas engine and the 2017 ISX15 with the Single Module aftertreatment system. Numerous digital and interactive displays highlight the latest in Cummins technology, including ADEPT™ and Connected Diagnostics.™
“It is a delight to kick off the Redefining Tour here in Columbus, with our historic Columbus Engine Plant as the backdrop,” stated Amy Boerger, Vice President – North American Engine Business.
“Today and the stops that will follow on the tour are a testament to the commitment Cummins has in listening to and interacting directly with our customers.”
Cummins representatives are on hand at each stop to showcase how its leading technology is redefining everything from efficiency to productivity, uptime and customer support and to help answer any questions customers may have.
