Cummins® and Chrysler Group LLC | Two Million Engines Strong

6.7 liters. 350 horsepower. 800 lb.-ft. torque. When it comes to Cummins® engines and Ram Trucks, we’ve always let the numbers do the talking. Today we get to add another number to the story: 2 million.

The Ram brand is pleased to announce that Cummins Inc. has produced its 2 millionth diesel engine for the Ram Truck lineup. This latest milestone highlights a storied partnership with almost 25 years of history and one with tremendous upside for both Cummins and Ram, and for diesel-engine customers in general.

“The Ram Truck-Cummins diesel partnership is one of the industry’s most enduring, and certainly fitting of such a tribute,” says Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico. “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.”

According to legend, Clessie Cummins, the founder of Cummins Engine Co. (now Cummins Inc.), built his first steam-powered engine when he was 11 years old, around the turn of the 20th century. Nearly 90 years later, the company he founded began supplying diesel engines to Ram. Now, in 2013, Cummins-powered Ram Trucks boast a number of remarkable capabilities and features, including:

  • Best-in-class torque and a 10 percent fuel-economy improvement
  • Exclusive dual-inlet “Ram Active Air” that adjusts induction according to driving conditions for optimal performance
  • “Smart” exhaust brake for smoother driving characteristics
  • Best-in-class, 15,000-mile oil-change interval
  • A new cooling system for improved performance and durability
  • B20 fuel capability
  • Next-generation selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and diesel exhaust fluid system with a range of up to 4,000 miles between refills
  • Dual fuel filtration system for enhanced reliability and durability in virtually every climate and environment
  • Unsurpassed powertrain warranty—5 years/100,000 miles

The Ram Truck brand congratulates our partners and friends at Cummins Inc. on this historic day. We take immense pride knowing that every diesel-powered Ram Truck reflects their hard work as much as ours, and we look forward to great things—and great engines—as the partnership continues.

  • I have a first generation 5.9 Cummins in my 91 Dodge W250. I absolutely love this truck. I have turned down several offers for it some of which were for $1000.00 more than I paid for it. I would love to own a new Dodge with the 6.7L Cummins, but will never give up my 91. Thank you Cummins and Dodge for putting together such a great truck!

  • Just Picked-Up (pun intended) our New 2012 RaM 2500 w/Cummins 6.7L!! What a gorgeous beast of a truck, smooth ride, excellent shifting and a surprisingly quiet yet crazy power plant with 800 pounds of torque. This is gonna be doing some HeavY Haulin’ this week with our companies BulK Oil Program, ALL 6000lbs of it!!!

    RAM + CUMMINS = ONE MEAN TRUCK, as my Tee-shirt reads and it is “TRUE”. I have a 08′ 2500 with the 6.7L Cummins, I love this truck. My two first, One – Pickup and Diesel. I will never “GO BACK TO GAS”, if all possible. I pull a 25′ travel trailer weighing about 6,800 lbs and the truck does not know it is there. Set it in “Tow/Haul” mode and turn “ON” the “Exhaust Brake” and you’re ready to “Roll Out” as in the words of “Optimus Prime”.

    My fiancé just bought a 2012 3500 with 6.7 cummins turbo diesel… He loves it….. Except he recently went into the local dealer to order new floor mats… And service guys did a PCM or ECM update…. And now the transmission shifts very hard… Where it used to be a snappy smooth shift. The service guys say they can’t undo it…. And he didn’t ask for it to be done…. How can my fiancé talk to an engineer or someone more qualified to discuss this issue?

    Did this engine get installed into a truck or just left to be on display? If installed any one know who has it or where the pics might be ?
