Cummins, Inc. Debuts Combined Drivetrain for Defense Applications

Cummins-Meritor Drivetrain Components Featured at AUSA

Today, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced the unveiling of its first combined solution to leverage solutions from its Cummins-Meritor portfolio engineered specifically for the demands of wheeled defense vehicles. This proof-of-concept drivetrain will be unveiled at the 2024 Annual AUSA Conference in Washington, DC, October 9-11.

Leveraging the strengths of several existing Cummins’ product lines to demonstrate Cummins’ ability to offer a complete vehicle powertrain, this innovative display features the Cummins L9 engine, Eaton-Cummins Endurant XD Pro transmission and Cummins-Meritor’s ProTec 4000 Series ISAS, ProTec 5000 Series tandem axles, RPL Drivelines, and MTC-3208 transfer case.

“Cummins’ portfolio of defense solutions has been bolstered by the addition of the Cummins-Meritor ProTec brand of drivetrain components,” said Jim Keane, Cummins Inc. Executive Director, Global Product Solutions for the Cummins-Meritor business unit. “Meritor Defense, now Cummins-Meritor, has a storied history of serving the defense market since the early 1900s. This legacy has long established these solutions as the leading drivetrain components available to defense applications. Combined with Cummins’ equally historic presence as the leading power supplier in the industry, we’re now able to offer our customers the most comprehensive portfolio of power generation and power distribution solutions available.”

Also featuring displays from Cummins’ Engine business unit, including both the Advance Combat Engine (ACE) and V903 engines, and the Power Generation business unit’s Tactical Energy Storage System (TESS), the Cummins booth will demonstrate a new commitment to being much more than a traditional ICE supplier.
