Peterbilt Motors Co. will soon offer the Cummins Westport ISL G Near Zero engine as an option on three of its vocational trucks, the Denton, Texas-based manufacturer said Aug. 30...

Near Zero refers to emissions of nitrogen oxide compounds, or NOx, at a level of 0.02 gram per brake horsepower-hour — 90% lower than the current federal standard of 0.2 gram.

Peterbilt said the engine produces 320 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque... Near Zero is the latest version of the ISL G, which has been in production since June 2007. The company said it will start making Models 520 and 320 with the new engine before Dec. 31. Production for Model 567 with Near Zero will follow early next year...
