Cummins – The Turbo Diesel with a History of Excellence
There’s a clearly defined line drawn in the truck segment when it comes to power and capabilities, and for as long as the boundaries on both have been pushed forward and the bar raised, there’s been a Cummins Turbo Diesel at the helm. Entering the scene almost three decades ago, the Cummins brand quickly took over the industry and is widely regarded as one of the most effective examples of diesel engine engineering. In 2007, a newer, better 6.7L model entered the scene, with better displacement, and a max power that is still the envy of competitor models.

EcoDiesel – A New Technology for a New Generation of Trucks
The EcoDiesel option entered the North American market in 2014 and already has attracted a wide audience of drivers eager for a diesel engine to get the most out of every ride. It doesn’t disappoint. Codenamed the A 630 DOHC, and developed by VM Motori in Italy, this represents the forward movement to bring diesel engine design and engineering to a wider audience and application. It was introduced unilaterally on the Ram 1500 and Grand Cherokee models.

Cummins – Specs and Application
Let’s take a moment to look over the specs that have contributed to the rise in fame and applause following the Cummins Turbo Diesel by exploring what you can expect with this amazing engine. The Ram-exclusive 6-speed manual transmission offers an ultra-low first gear ratio for hauling, as well as efficiency. Note the Power Take-Off (PTO) access covers on both sides of the transmissions made for greater upfit capacity. This 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel generates 370 Horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque. So expertly designed is this model that it has been recorded travelling up over 500,000 km without complications, and with Best-in-Class oil change intervals of 24,000 km, coupled to a 5-year/160,000 km powertrain limited warranty you can bet yours is going to last. This is the best-selling diesel, and it can be yours with select Ram and Jeep products.
