LISLE, Ill. — IC Bus has started customer shipments of its first CE Series school buses with the Cummins ISB 6.7-liter engine.
The first units were released from IC Bus’ Tulsa, Okla., assembly plant on Monday.
“Adding the Cummins ISB as an offering on our CE Series buses was intended to provide us with a new opportunity for growth, and we are excited to already see results reflected in the first two months of orders,” said John McKinney, president of Navistar global bus. “Customers now have access to the broadest selection of mid-range diesel engines in the industry, and we are encouraged by the long-term market potential for the CE Series.”
CE Series buses are available with the MaxxForce 7, the MaxxForce DT and the Cummins ISB6.7 engines. IC Bus officials said that, to date, the company has received more than 2,000 orders for CE buses with the Cummins engine.
