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.

Cummins Engines Corporate Headquarters is in Columbus, IN., and it is great to see two fine companies working together offering products that can be made and sold in the USA as well as other countries. With Allison Transmissions Headquarters in Indianapolis and Navistar based out of Chicago, IL., we can see how close these companies area in the region and the products they all come together to engineer and build get better and better. Having worked on and driven school buses for 29 years I have seen many improvements. This is great to see happening especially when American companies work together and employ American workers in a weak economy. Tax dollars are spent on school buses. It is great to see that tax money being spent supporting American companies and American workers who care about providing good products for the school bus industry. Keep up the good work !
