If you are looking for an engine which will outlast the competition, the Cummins engine is the top choice. The most common engines are the 5.9L six-cylinder and the 6.7L version of the Cummins straight six engine. These engines are found in our Ram lineup.
What makes a Cummins a reliable choice?
Cummins has its own test track to ensure they are supplying quality products. They also have test trucks in cities where they constantly undergo stop and starting environments. They even had a truck run continuously for 270,000 miles and it ran great long after. Cummins even continues to test their products to look for possible improvements.
Cummins is a technology leader in the diesel engine market, with their employees working relentlessly to provide cutting-edge solutions to the increasingly difficult challenge of producing cleaner-running engines. For example, Cummins was the only company in the industry to meet the 2010 EPA standards for NOx emissions with the release in early 2007 of its new 6.7-liter turbo diesel for the Dodge Ram Heavy Duty pickup.
The change from the 5.9L to the 6.7L has allowed Cummins to increase power, increase torque and reduce noise. This change was thanks to Cummins strong belief in always having a gold standard on their products. They knew they could produce the EPA standard for NOx emission 3 full years before it was required.
Not only is the 6.7L environmentally conscious, it has all the power you could need. It produces up to 350 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Things like cylinder pressure, exhaust temperatures and cylinder head temperatures are tweaked until Cummins finds the performance you need.
