Cat's fate
« on: May 31, 2013, 07:50:35 PM »
Any word or rumours on what will happen with the Cat truck, now that International has gone to Cummins for their SCR systems on the 13 litre, and has also closed the Garland Texas plant where the Paystar and Cat truck were built and moved to Mexico?
Will we see a Cummins powered Cat truck? LOL.

You won't see Cummins power...yet, but you will see Cat trucks with Cummins SCR systems. They have not found a replacement for the MaxxForce 15/CT15 yet that I've heard.

It sure would be nice to see Cat come back to the on-road engine market. Especially since they are now putting emissions systems on their off road equipment. I'm sure SCR wouldn't be a big stretch for them.

Local company just got a new Cat truck and the driver tried to tell me it has a Mitsubishi engine with Cat heads? I haven't heard anything about a Maxx Force replacement. Maybe he was misinformed? I didn't get a chance to look under the hood.
