I think this is a good move, i don't care how Chrysler shares it's diesels, as long as Ram trucks still get good diesel engines that's all that matters to me.
But all is not well if you listen to the peanut gallery. Forums and web articles everywhere have exploded with vitriol at the prospect of Nissan now making use of the Cummins 5.0 in their Titan and the Frontier was shown with a 2.8 Cummins. Add that to the outcry that RAM went with an Italian made diesel from Motori instead of something from Cummins.“Ram and Cummins are names synonymous with power, quality and durability. We’ve enjoyed a successful relationship and remained leaders in the diesel pickup market for 25 years. The numbers don’t lie. Backed by a Cummins engine, our Ram Heavy Duty is King of the Hill with 30,000 lbs. of towing capacity – three tons more than the closest competitor and our flagship Chassis Cab trucks hit Gross Combined Weight Ratings of up to 37,500 lbs.”
