Ford & Cummins

I friend told me this morning, that Ford and Cummins were marrying up.
Dodge would have to use something else.
Personally, I find this hard to believe, but has anyone else heard of this?
Didn't Ford own a hunk of Cummins once?

Last I heard,
Ford was a major share holder at one time but has since sold most of their stock (about 3-5 years ago...). They still have a minor stake in the Cummins brand I believe....

According to our local fleet sales rep, the only diesel engine available in the entire Ford line is the 6.7 liter. For the light and med duty trucks (F250-550), it's the Ford 6.7 Powerstroke. For the heavy duty (F650-750) it's the Cummins. However, the Cummins 6.7 is available in 5 different power levels.

Ford just spent $600,000,000 developing their own in house diesel engine (the 6.7). I am doubtful there is any "marriage" pending with any other manufacturer.

Ford was never a major stakeholder in Cummins although they once owned about 3% of Cummins publicly traded stock, which they divested entirely of in 1997.

This rumor has been going around the 'net for at least 15 years. It is still completely false.

I stand corrected the last cat was a 09 C7 300hp.

It now a cummins are a 6.8 v10

Starting with the 2010 model year, only one diesel option was available due to Caterpillar's current absence in the OTR market. The 6.7 L Cummins B Series engine(ISB) I-6 diesel comes with 8 standard and optional ratings, and two vocational ratings.[2] Ford has announced that for the 2012 model year there will be gasoline and compressed natural gas options available for the F-650. The 6.8 L Ford Modular engine V-10 produces 362*hp and 457*ft·lbs of torque and will be mated to Fords new 6R140 6-speed automatic transmission.[3]

Is that special order? Our brochure only shows the Cummins ISB or V10 as options. Transmission choices are Automatic (Allison) or manual (Fuller).

The F-53 and F-59 chassis look like gas engines only...

The Cat engines are quite impressive. We have an FL-60 stake bed truck with a Cat 7.2 and it's a brute. We use it to pull our larger trucks when they get stuck in landscaping and mud at jobsites etc. It's one of my favorite trucks in the fleet.

I own a lawn and landscaping company. I sunk my truck two weeks ago with a 25' gooseneck and a bobcat T190 with a spade and two pallets off grass and had to get a peterbilt to pull me out. Not a fun day.

Back to topic I've heard ford owned a few shares but I can not confirm this but I have emailed Ford this question and the answer was that cummins was an engine supplier for Ford

Cat no longer sells engines for on road trucks, except as a replacement.
They have come out with a Vocational Truck with the "CAT" badge, but it is a Navistar, with a Navistar engine built for Cat.
The Auto transmission is a Cat Built.
This is the last I heard. I tend to agree with Klux though.
