The Cummins ISL is a straight-six diesel engine designed and produced by Cummins. It displaces 8.9 litres (543.1 cu in), and began production in 1998. The engine was based on its 8.3 litres (506.5 cu in) predecessor, the Cummins C8.3 engine.

The Cummins ISL also has a sister engine which is based on the existing ISL 8.9 litre cylinder block which runs on compressed natural gas (CNG).

ISL vs. L10

The ISL is not to be confused with the older L10 series, which Cummins had produced and sold from 1982 to early 1998. The old L10 series, which like the current ISL, had seen use in the applications listed above (plus, early Dennis double decker buses), displaced 10.0 litres (610.2 cu in), was slightly larger, and had been replaced by the M11 entirely in 1994, although the natural gas version, known as the L10G, had hung on until the spring of 1998.
