IC Bus publicly unveiled for the first time this week its IC Bus CE Series school bus with Cummins ISB 6.7-liter engine.
The bus is being displayed at the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) Annual Summit.
IC Bus announced in early September it would offer the ISB in its CE Series school buses and began taking orders at the beginning of this month.
John McKinney, President, Navistar Global Bus says customer response has been strong in both interest and orders.
“We are encouraged by the long-term market potential,” he says.
With this introduction, the CE Series now offers the broadest selection of mid-range diesel engines in the industry – the MaxxForce 7, MaxxForce DT and Cummins ISB6.7. It is also the first IC Bus school bus with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions aftertreatment. IC Bus will continue to offer EGR-only versions of its mid-range engines utilizing its medium-duty emissions credits.
Full-scale production for the CE Series school bus with Cummins ISB6.7 is scheduled for late-January 2014.
