'Autocar, an American manufacturer of severe-duty, cabover vocational trucks, will introduce the Cummins X12 in its ACX model starting in the fourth quarter of 2018.', 'The X12 meets the needs of its customers by boasting a remarkably low 2,050-pound engine weight that doesn’t compromise on durability or performance, the company said.', '“With its best-in-class power-to-weight ratio, Cummins believes that the X12 engine will be well-suited to address the needs of the refuse market as well as other weight sensitive vocational applications,” said Brett Merrit, vice president for Cummins’ on-highway engine business.', '“Autocar is a key player in the North America refuse market, and this introduction will further our current collaboration across diesel and natural gas platforms.” Delivering up to 500 horsepower (373 kW), the X12 has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any comparable engine in the market.'
