The Cummins Westport ISL G, is an 8.9 litre stoichiometric cooled-exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) engine, and is certified to 2010 EPA emissions.

Since its introduced in 2007,the company has produced over 13,000 units of ISL G engine, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and offers top-level performance and efficiency.

Cummins Westport president Roe East said adding Navistar completes the listing of the ISL G with all major North American truck OEMs and reaffirms the company's position of market leadership for natural gas engines.
