Freightliner adds Cummins X12 engine option for vocational 114SD


Cummins‘ lightweight 11.8 liter X12 engine is now available for order on Freightliner 114SD chassis.

Vice President of Cummins On-Highway Engine Business Brett Merritt says he’s excited about the impact the X12 – Cummins’ lightest Class 8 truck engine – can have in weight-sensitive vocational applications.

At 2,050 pounds, the X12 has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any engine in its class, enabling greater payload while improving productivity and uptime. The engine is capable of up to 500 horsepower and 1700 pounds-feet of torque, and is optimized for the Freightliner 114SD chassis for vocational applications like concrete mixers and dump trucks.

The low-friction design of the X12 offers improved fuel economy with extended maintenance intervals similar to the Cummins X15 engine, as well as high mileage, real-world experience to ensure maximum uptime.
