Cummins built 2 millionth diesel for Dodge

Allpar.com -- Cummins produced its two millionth diesel engine for Ram trucks, the latest milestone in a partnership that spans four decades.

The 6.7 liter turbo-diesel engine, rated at 800 lb-ft of torque and 350 horsepower, is, like all Cummins diesels supplied to Dodge and Ram over the years, an in-line six-cylinder. Distinguished by a “Cummins Red” rocker cover and breather, the historic engine, feted today at a Cummins plant in Indiana, will tour the country.

Fred Diaz, Ram CEO, said, “Both companies have benefited greatly, but Ram diesel customers are the real beneficiaries. Every day they experience the toughness and capability a Cummins-powered Ram can deliver.”

Cummins built 2 millionth diesel for Dodge, built for many years and many years to go. I have Never used a Dodge product and never will. I have always used gasoline engines and will continue to do so.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

yesterday it was Briggs & Stratton with their milestone engine. Today it's Cummins. Someone on Gas Buddy work for a small engine place? First time I recall hearing They built an engine for the Ram trucks. Guess that shows I haven't owned any Dodge trucks.

What does it matter how much fuel they burn? Its an 8000 pound truck what do you expect. Its made to pull and haul stuff, take you down a logging road with 2000 pounds of tools to a jobsite or pull a loaded trailer. They get a lot worse nowadays with EGR, DPF and Urea injection and reliability has suffered. They get more work done per gallon then a gas engine. Have you ever looked at used diesel pickups? They normally have much higher mileage on them then similiar year cars or gas pick ups because people get them to use them. Your econobox car might get 45mpg but how much work can you do with a small car.

People would be much better off if they learned how to make money and not squirrel it away or take other peoples. I wish some people would figure out the calories burned couponing or just being cheap that if they went out and worked and made some money they'd be much happier and better off.

What does it matter? The owners thereof pay for every cent. It is their business, not mine, not yours and not anyone else's business.
