Cummins has unveiled the ISV5.0, a five-litre diesel engine aimed at the light- and medium-duty commercial vehicle market. And this more or less dots the Is and cross the Ts on a recent announcement of a partnership to supply a five-litre turbo diesel to Nissan to use in its American Titan ute.
The ISV5.0 marks the latest announcement from Cummins as the engine maker continues to branch out from its Class 8 heritage.
“We’ve worked hard to understand what the market needs and wants,” said Jeff Jones, vice president of Cummins’ North American engine business.
“The recipe that we use in all the markets round the world we’ve applied here.”
The ISV5.0 has been designed to easily fit where a comparable V8 or V10 petrol engine was previously used. It brings together a compacted graphite iron (CGI) cylinder block, forged steel crankshaft, high-strength aluminum alloy heads and composite valve covers to offer maximum durability in a lightweight package. These features, along with dual overhead camshafts, also reduce noise, vibration and harshness.
Leading engine technology produces better fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. With multiple injection events driven by integrated electronic controls, the ISV5.0’s fuel system and Cummins VGT variable geometry turbocharger contribute to a very impressive peak torque of 759Nm and quick throttle response. Ratings from 149 kW to 205 kW are available.
A two-stage fuel filter system for the ISV5.0 features the latest NanoNet media from Cummins Filtration, to ensure that the fuel system is fully protected against fuel contamination. NanoNet’s unique construction provides lower fuel-flow restriction and traps greater than 99 percent of all particles as small as four microns, smaller than the naked eye can see.
Cummins Filtration’s expertise also extends to a high-efficiency coalescing filter to eliminate crankcase hydrocarbon emissions and oil mist, further adding to the clean-engine credentials of the ISV5.0.
The engine’s air handling and emissions control technology draws upon Cummins’ extensive expertise in emissions technology. The Company’s VGT turbocharger, cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and Cummins Emission Solutions’ aftertreatment system, featuring a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), reduce the emission of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate matter to near-zero levels while delivering better performance and fuel economy.
