Cummins launches latest F Series engines
Cummins has launched the latest Euro6 Phase-D design evolution of its 2.8litre and 3.8litre F Series diesel engines for touring, intercity and shuttle minicoaches.
With ratings extending from 129 to 188hp (96 to 140kW) and with up to 700Nm peak torque, the F2.8 and F3.8 have significantly more torque, more fuel-efficiency and quieter, more refined operation for 5m to 8m light passenger vehicles. They have smart electronic management, telematics ready capability and an integral stop/start system to eliminate almost all engine idling.
A cleaner, more efficient combustion formula combined with the Single Module exhaust aftertreatment enables the F Series engines to meet stringent Euro6 Phase-D regulations without the need for an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system on the engine. As a result, cooling demands are lower and architecture is simpler.
Launching it at Busworld Turkey, Cenk Yavuz, Cummins manager – on-highway business, Turkey, said: “The F Series engines arrive at an opportune time for the Turkish market, as we see an increasing demand for higher performance, cleaner and quieter engines to align with premium mini-coach and shuttle vehicles for small group tourism and transport,” said
“The F2.8 and F3.8 are a smaller, but stronger power solution as they come with the inherent robustness associated with the larger Cummins B Series engine. Commonality also extends to a high-pressure common rail fuel system, providing smoother and more rapid engine response to increasing engine load demands. Smarter electronics also means that engine diagnostics and trip data can be quickly accessed with Cummins digital service tools,” adds Yavuz.
The two F Series engines cover a wider range of coach applications and duty cycles. The F2.8 extends from 129 to 174hp (96 to 130 kW) with peak torque up to 450Nm, while the F3.8 covers a 141 to 188hp (105 to 140 kW) range with a peak torque of 700Nm. Both engines have space efficient packaging and an engine management system that integrates with the vehicle controls and powertrain.
