Cummins Diesel announces 'crate engine' program

Cummins has formally announced the introduction of its crate engine program called 'Cummins Repower' as a means of offering brand new engines from the factory direct to the consumer market.

"For nearly 100 years, the Cummins legacy has been built on repowering anything from early river boats to modern 95-liter locomotives and everything in between," said Jeff Caldwell, Cummins executive director, global pickup/ van business. "Clessie Cummins repowered automobiles, race cars, buses and trucks, demonstrating the benefits of the diesel engine over their original power plants. We are proud to be continuing the legacy of our namesake by enabling passionate enthusiasts to repower their vehicles for the same reason Cummins repowered his own."

The announcement, made on the first official day of the 2016 SEMA Show, comes after research and voice of customer surveys identified significant demand for Cummins in the consumer aftermarket.

"They (customers) want reliable power, and this segment of the aftermarket exists because there is no off-the-shelf vehicle that satisfies enthusiasts’ appetites for personalization – they build their own," Caldwell continued.

The first Cummins Repower engine offering will be the R2.8 Turbo Diesel (above), which is shipped with other major components to ease the installation process, as well as the necessary documentation to make it '50-state-emissions-compliant'.

The turbocharged 2.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine is based on a global platform which is currently used in small pickups, chassis cabs, SUVs, vans, commercial vehicles and industrial equipment around the world. The proven platform is a lightweight, electronically controlled, High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) compact package ideal for most small pickup and SUV applications for qualifying vintages.
