Chrysler Group has today announced that Cummins has produced the 2-millionth diesel engine for Ram Trucks, a 6.7-liter straight-six turbo diesel rated at 350 hp and distinguished by its “Cummins Red” rocker cover and breather.
This landmark engine will not be put into service, as instead they will use it for display, touring the US.

“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.”

“I am immensely proud of our association with Cummins,” says Bob Lee, Chrysler Group Vice President and Head of Engine and Electrified Propulsion Engineering. “And I have no qualms matching our truck diesels against those of any competitor for performance and durability.”

New Cummins-powered Rams boast capabilities and features that include:

• 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 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

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
