May 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Westport Innovations announced a broad range of product enhancements, including the availability of the Westport HD 15L in North America.
The Westport HD 15L LNG engine will be available in North America starting early 2013.
With up to 550 horsepower and 1850 pounds-feet of torque, the engine is targeted for heavy haul vocations with demanding performance requirements. This power/torque option for North America now matches what has been available in Australia for more than three years. It should be available in early 2013.
The Westport HD 15L will feature an optimized emissions equipment system, tailored specifically to the lower emissions profile of natural gas to reduce cost and weight and improve operation and reduce user intervention.
Other enhancements from Westport include:
- Eaton Ultrashift Plus AMT is now available in all Kenworth and Peterbilt configurations in North America for fleets that desire additional driver options.
- Available on Peterbilt Motors' 367 SB, Westport HD now offers 16,000-pound front axles as demanded by a number of vocational applications.
