I saw that the other day. No more cummins? Or does cummins make or will make a 6.7? the C series is what - 8.3L? That can't be it.

The dodge/cummins combo was arguably the best diesel engine in the *ahem* least desireable full-size truck. I have always liked Dodge (my first car was an 85 1/2 ton dodge), but I think they are 3rd in the full-size American truck race - which is an important market in the US.

It's still a Cummins , they say 40% of the parts are the same and better MPG.

I'm just woundering how the 5.9 will do on ULSD.

And why is that special? Only difference is a couple hundred RPMS which can be attribute to a slightly larger displacement.

Being retired the only use I have for a truck is towing my 3000lb boat.

My ideal boat towing rig is a Toyota Tundra or Toyota Sequoia or Toyota Landcruiser.

I worked on diesel engines (electrical generators and air compressors) in the Navy and I hate em, they are expensive to buy, the fuel is too costly, they stink, which makes your garage stink and they are way too noisy, and they scare the little kids (grin).

Did I make a lot of enemies? Didn’t mean to.

I was loyal to “made in the USA“ until the pain became too great. Now me and Toyota are great friends.

The 5.9L I-6 Cummins was revised to meet the new LD truck diesel emission standards. The displacement was increased to 6.7L so as to recover output losses from the new emission systems and related calibrations.

BTW, the actual rating is 305 HP SAE net, 610 LB/FT.

Every time they change something they screw something else up. Gotta watch out for the gremlins in new vehicles.

My understanding is that this combination for now is only going to be available in the chassis cab trucks. I still love that cummins is going the I6 route, there is no reason for a diesel to have to turn high RPM's to make power, who wants to go down the road with a diesel turning 3k? Sure, the high RPM diesels are a little more fun to drive around town, but IMO for a truck used to tow heavy loads, the fun factor is a non-factor. The other thing I like about them is that you don't have to beg them to let you have a nice truck with a manual transmission in it, and can get a dealer installed exaust brake on them, that was actually designed by the folks that make the motor.

The funniest thing I think I have seen lately is the local ford dealer near my parents house, they run 2 dually's with 3 car wedge trailers to move used cars & do dealer transfers, in the past they have always run 7.3 fords w/ manual transmissions. Now, they are running two dodge dually's. Needless to say, they dont have the dealer or ford logo's on them.

I know, but those were pre-production estimates. The actual launch numbers can be found at both the Dodge and Cummins links that I provided. Watch for similar adjustments from other diesel pickup truck manufacturers shortly.

Click here to read an AutoWeek article that sums up the new emission system that all of the "Big Three" are using.

Below are a couple of excerpts:

Starting in January, all diesel-powered pickups from the Big 3, as well as the few European diesel-powered cars sold in the United States, will have a particulate filter in the exhaust system.

That filter traps the tiny pieces of ash that make the soot or black smoke that has been the bane of diesel engines. The new fuel, which lowers the sulfur content of diesel from 550 parts per million to around 15 ppm, will nearly eliminate the traditional smell of diesel exhaust.
Tenneco has contracts to supply diesel particulate filters to all three Detroit automakers and International Truck and Engine Corp. Other suppliers making such filters include Faurecia and ArvinMeritor Inc.
Diesel particulate filters first appeared in Europe in 2000. About 2.5 million cars equipped with filters are in use in Europe, says Kubsh.

The first filters had to be taken off and cleaned at around 80,000 miles. But the filters coming in January for U.S. diesels are designed to last the life of the vehicle without any extraordinary maintenance.
Unlike a catalytic converter, which cleans the exhaust on a gasoline-powered car, the long, cylindrical filter doesn't just sit in the exhaust system.

The filter has a sensor that measures back pressure, or the force required to push the exhaust gases out of the engine and through to the tailpipes...

...As the ash in the diesel particulate filter builds up, the back pressure increases. When it reaches a certain level, the sensor tells the computer to squirt more fuel into the engine. That puts more fuel in the exhaust system and causes heat to build up in the oxidation catalyst, located in front of the filter.

Finally, the increasing heat causes the ash to burn up in the filter.
My powertrain contacts tell me that the additional backpressure created by the trap(s) and exhaust temperature requirements had a larger than anticipated inpact on engine output.

Not when a lot of the components are ultra high pressure oil driven.
