RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Where? I don't see any link stating DAF is working on their own engine to replace the PX engines they re-brand from Cummins. I just got off the phone with a power train product manager at PACCAR who would be involved if DAF were developing a new engine. It was news to him as wel That does not suprise me as NA is their main focus. Their knowledge of outside NA is pretty limited. Euro 7 will be pretty tough He is their global powertrain product manager so he would know. So where is the link? Where is the link to working on Euro7?

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Maybe on the bottom of the world, subsidiaries don’t take direction from their parent corporations. But here on the topside, they **** well do. Anyone believes otherwise, I have a bridge to sell you.  VW COrporation is a finance and strategy hub, does nor deal with the workings of the overall company

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Speaking of Scania, Cummins also makes engines for them that they rebrand as their own as well. Their DC07 is a Cummins ISB 6.7L painted black and rebraned as a Scania engine Really they make 3 lines of Diesel engines, whete is your link?

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

did earlier with a picture of the Cummins made turbo on the MX-13. How does a Cummins turbo get on a PACCAR engine without involvement from Cummins?  I already have see above, as DAF works on other engines for PACCAR. EU regulations are getting tighter Euro 7 is being addressed now A turbo is an ancillary, others can use the same turbo. Not a big deal. But that cooperation has stopped as PACCAR is pushing its engines to replace Cummins for users. A US Truck acting like European one with vertical integration Euro 7 emission norms are expected to be implemented in 2020, with a CO2 emission target of 95 grams per kilometer. ... The Euro 7CO2 target has a phase-in period of one year that requires that 95% of the OEM cars be compliant by 2020, and by 2021 all cars have to be compliant to the limit value curve.Apr 26, 2016

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Cummins also makes engines for DAF which they re-brand as their own. Smaller 4 and 6 litre engines. DAF is working on replacing rhose due to EU restrictions They just signed another 10 year contract for those so I doubt it will be anytime soon. I think faster than that EU pressure is on them to replace them What do you think Scania is going to do with Navistar when they takeover.

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

No it was not False, the original engine was a DAF/ Leyland since developed in the US DAF are developing other engines in the PACCAR range Engine dwvelopment in the US staeted in 2010 and rhis was PACCAR'S first prprietary engines as it was using Cunmins prior to that. Interesting to see what Scania will do with Navistar if they get the deal through

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Uhhh? How do you know that a Holset Only works on US engines???? Because I used to work for Cummins and I have also worked with PACCAR, both on the Kenworth and Peterbilt side, for the past 15 years. Fantastic where is the proof???? Post links to Cummins involvement in the PACCAR engine

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Cummins helped design the performance and emissions aspects of the MX-13 to meet US emissions standards. Cummins turbo in England does not work on any US engines. They only work on engines sold in EU. The Cummins turbo headquarters in Tennessee works on all North American and South American spec engines including the MX-13. Uhhh? How do you know that a Holset Only works on US engines???? Have you tried them have you:B They Holset are designed in England, production and s testing are done in other countries. Cummins MAY have helped no evidence they did that as PACCAR is building its own branded engines now being designed by DAF in the Netherlands. Cummin( Holset) only did the Turbo. PACCAR now are in control of production and testing of their own engines PACCAR Launches PACCAR MX Engine Successful 50 Million Mile Test Program. January 25, 2010, Bellevue, Washington PACCAR today announced the introduction of the PACCAR MX engine to be installed in Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks this summer. The PACCAR MX engine is designed to deliver industry leading … In 2010, PACCAR unveiled its PACCAR MX engine line for North America. While the MX engine was new to the North American market, DAF has been building engines in Europe since 1957. PACCAR invested $400 million in the PACCAR Engine factory and technology center in Columbus, Mississippi, to assemble the proprietary engines. Holset Turbo was on the original DAF engine above that became the MX PACCAR engine

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

The original MX engine was designed by DAF and Cummins. Due to the stricter US NOx emissions laws, DAF did not have a turbo and many other performance components that were able to meet US emissions. This is where Cummins stepped in and provided many of the performance parts such as the VGT turbo from their Holset division whom they owned for 30 years. Holset is now Cummins Turbo Technologies with two headquarters. One in Huddersfield, England for Euro engines ment to meet EU emissions and one in Memphis, Tennessee for US specs engines meant to meet US emissions requirements like the MX-13. Cummins Emissions Solutions also provides the after treatment system for the MX-13 as well. No the original was a DAF/ Leyland engine. DAF invented the modern turbo engines for Truck diesels, Holset England still works on US spec engines. Scania worked on the fuel injection systems for Cummins for US Spec diesels, also designed the MaxxForce engine that is now in use for Navistar Holset designed in England but built in many factories across the world Holset now operates facilities in China, India, Brazil, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In 2006, the division officially changed its name to Cummins Turbo Technologies to be identified more closely with its parent company. The turbocharger products still use the Holset brand name.

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Really? Are you seriously debating me on this? I have worked with PACCAR and for Cummins in some form for the past 15 years. This is a MX-13 turbo. Notice the words Holset on it along with the words PACCAR on the housing. Holset is owned by Cummins who helped develope the performance and emissions parts for the MX engine. Holset is a Company based in England, bought by Cummins. The original MX Engine was DAF/ Leyland engine, that was transferred too the US and became the MX PACCAR engine. The company now has a worldwide reputation for its turbochargers but its history can be traced back to a shed in Huddersfield in 1952. Cummins Turbo Technologies began life that year on March 29 as Holset Engineering Co Ltd and started manufacturing turbochargers in the town in 1958.Sep 12, 2012 The outstanding quality of the current range of PACCAR engines is a reflection of over 50 years experience DAF has accumulated in the development and production of its own engines. During this time, the company has established an excellent reputation for producing durable, reliable, fuel efficient and low emission engines. …

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

When we say VW, we mean VW group which owns 12 brands and models including Traton, not VW the car company. It is the same as when some say FCA when talking about a Ram product. So we are not saying anything wrong when we say VW. Yes you are VW the car company has nothing to do with Scania, MAN daily running, VW CORPORATION is the holding Company

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Also, the PACCAR PX that they first introduced are Cummins ISB's and Cummins ISL's painted gray and slapped with a PACCAR logo. The bigger MX engines were co-designed with Cummins and DAF and were not solely DAF engines. The turbo and many other components on the MX are made by Cummins No they are not." the bigger MX engine" which I am talking about is a relocated DAF engine nothing to do with Cummins. Stop the Rubbish. , Cummins has nothing to do with it.

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Really? Then maybe you should tell the VW group to take Traton off of their website as a list of brands and subsidiaries. Can you read.? VW CORPORATION owns the Traton group, they have been floated. VW the car grouping ( Audi, VW, Skoda , Porsche and Seat) are not part of the Traton Group but are owned by VW CORPORATION. Funding for the takeover is coming from Scania and MAN

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Tranton is owned by the VW Group which is what we mean when we say VW so saying VW is not wrong. Just because we are not saying it your way does not mean we are incorrect. VW the car company is wrong, they are a separate group in VW the Corporation. Dieselgate was not part of the Traton Group, not affected by it If the sale goes ahead , Europeans will own 80% of the US Heavy Truck market. PACCAR being the only independent. Although their PACCAR Engine started life as a DAF Engine

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

We've had 2 VW's in past 7 years. 1st one was a a Passat diesel and 2nd is another Passat 4 cyl turbo. Loved the diesel and too bad it was part of VW's scandal, but I really tip my hat to whoever developed the software to allow it to confuse emissions tests. That being said, was it right, no, but still have to hand it to someone. That car got great MPG's, torquey and no problems. That was until 3 months before VW bought it back. It developed a water leak and I never bothered to get it fixed knowing VW was buying it. Now have their 4 cal turbo and while not as torquey as the diesel, does get good MPG's and roomy. In regards to Daimler/Freightliner, I cannot say they are building the cheapest trucks as all the big semi companies are suffering from the same thing as the big 3 pick-up companies......DEF systems. Have spoken to many and that's the biggest gripe. Reason you may hear/see more Freightliners w/ problems is cuz you see the most of them on the road. Many years ago. International was #1 in pretty much all markets. Freightliner came along with a goal to knock IH off it's #1 perch in same categories. Ford's 6.0 PSD got a lousy rap, but look at how many they sold as well. So while you may see more in way of Freightliner's broke down, they like the RV industry, get/use same vendors for products. and most if not all breakdowns are DEF related. Yes IH has had a lousy past 10-15 years or so, partly their fault, partly others. It's the others that took advantage and ran w/ it and don't see how they can be to blame. Personally, I wouldn't rush to buy/drive a IH truck, but if that's what my company chooses to buy, then that's what I have to drive. How many of us have said we wouldn't but a Ram, Ford or GM cuz of either current problems or past history? Yet others continue to do so. Luck of the draw. Harley-Davidson, tho a US bike, are they better than bikes from across the pond? Paying for a name./ Same can be said w/ John Deere. Pick your poison. Correction: VW the car company is not buying Navistar. Scania and MAN have as much to do with VW, as Ducati the Motorbike Company they own. Driver of this purchase is Scania with MAN s a Partner, funding is coming from them. VW Corporation sits on the board of both Companies, but outside of that has nothing to do with the Companies. Scania is working with Cummins and Isuzu on diesel technology. They designed the Maxxxforce Engine for Navistar that is still being used by them

RE: VW Traton has made a bid for Navistar

Interesting. I don’t know that will be welcome news considering Volkswagen’s reputation for unreliability in the US. Of course Diamler is no better, yet Freightliner has taken the lion’s share of the market, so what do I know? Price sells more than any other consideration I suppose. It is not VW. Traton is Scania and MAN
