March 26, 2024. Peterbilt announces the availability of the new Cummins X15N natural gas engine on the Models 579, 567 and 520 with orders scheduled for production in the 3rd quarter of 2024. The X15N is optimized for weight, space and durability making it ideal for short-haul, long-haul, refuse and construction customers requiring a larger displacement engine that also significantly reduces emissions.

The X15N is available with ratings up to 500HP and 1,850 lb.-ft of torque and offers up to 10% fuel economy compared to the ISX12N. It also offers improved low speed drivability and extended service intervals for reduced maintenance costs. The X15N is designed to meet the stringent 2024 and 2027 EPA and CARB regulations.
