Heavy-Duty Truck Truck Equipment Manufacturers and Body Builders


The 2018 ISX12N continues the evolution of emissions-leading natural gas engines from Cummins. Certified to the California Air Resources Board and Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Optional Low NOx emissions standard of 0.02 g/bhp-hr, it has 90% fewer NOx emissions than the current North American EPA standard. With 400 hp / 1,450 lb-ft torque, and near-zero emissions, the ISX12N is well suited for heavy-duty regional-haul truck, vocational, refuse applications, and motorcoach.

Reduced Emissions from Heavy Duty Trucks

  • Reduces smog forming NOx emissions by 90% vs. EPA NOx Standard
  • Can operate with 100% CNG, LNG, or renewable natural gas (RNG)
  • Significant GHG reductions with the use of RNG. 
  • Natural gas is the lowest carbon fuel available, with abundant domestic supply and stable pricing
  • Fueling infrastructure in place and growing
  • No infrastructure changes are required for current natural gas fleets


NOTE: For all engines and options available, horsepower may be limited by the truck OEM

  • Heavy Duty Class 8 performance and efficiency
  • New electronic engine, ignition, and On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) emission control features. 
  • New engine control module – ECM model number CM2380.
  • Closed Crankcase Ventilation system for more complete combustion and lower emissions

Overall, maintenance for the ISX12N  is similar to that of diesel engines, but there are a few key differences:

  • Motor oil specifically formulated for natural gas engines is required. Do not use diesel engine oil in a natural gas engine. If diesel engine oil is used, valve torching, piston scuffing and reduction in spark-plug life will occur.

^Based on a duty cycle of 50 mph / 80 kph average speed. Distance intervals may decrease based on average speed.
*Requires natural gas engine oil. These intervals apply to normal duty line haul truck and motor coach applications using CES 20085 or 20092 natural gas oil. For customers using CES 20092 natural gas engine oils only, the recommended interval is 40,000 mi (64,000 km) for vehicles with average road speeds greater than 25 mph (40 kph).
**Initial overhead set adjustment at 1,000 hours.
