In conclusion, the 21 year long partnership will continue in the years to come with Cummins supplying 6.7l turbo diesel engines for Ram Heavy Duty pickups and Chassis Cab trucks.
"Cummins and Chrysler have a long and important history together," Dave Crompton, VP and General Manager, MidRange Engine Business said. "The Chrysler business continues to be a key part of our MidRange engine business. "Cummins is proud to supply engines for the award-winning Ram Heavy Duty and to continue working with Chrysler to develop best-in-class products that customers can trust and depend on now and in the future."
If you wonder why is this piece of news that important, it means you are not a Ram or Cummins fan. The ones that are, bought 1.7 million Cummins-engined Dodge Ram Heavy Duty trucks since 1989, with 80 percent of the today customers opting for a Cummins engine under the hood.
The success of the partnership between the two nearly came to an end during Chrysler's bankruptcy last year, when a supplier rejection filing in US bankruptcy court stated the contract would be terminated. The previous contract between the two had been signed back in 2006.
