On June 13 in Columbus, Ind., Cummins Inc. kicked off its 2015 Redefining Tour, a coast-to-coast mobile tour showcasing both its current and future technologies. The Redefining Tour will visit over 30 cities across the U.S. and Canada until Oct. 6, providing customers with an up-close and personal opportunity to view Cummins solutions.
Cummins says the tour features five Class-8 truck-and-trailer combinations representing major Class-8 OEM brands that will travel cross-country to each stop. The vehicles will be powered by a combination of the current ISX15 engine, the Cummins Eaton SmartAdvantage powertrain, and the 2017 ISX15 engine with the single module aftertreatment system. Additionally, the company says the vehicles will feature specifications catering to both fuel-efficiency- and high-performance-oriented customers.
According to Cummins, one of the key highlights of the caravan is the interactive show trailer that will be on display for customers to walk through and explore. The trailer will feature 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.
Unique to the tour will be four designated ‘Power Stops’ that include additional Cummins-powered diesel and natural gas equipment. The Columbus kickoff event was the first of four Power Stops, with the additional three stops taking place June 24 in Toronto, Ontario; Aug. 11 in Salt Lake City, Utah; and Aug. 21 in Dallas, Texas.
