Chrysler Group Inks Extended Cummins Diesel Supply Contract

The brand name may have changed, but the diesel engine offered in Ram pickups won’t. Cummins Diesel Inc. announced today it had renewed its contract with Chrysler to provide turbo-diesel engines for heavy-duty models.


“Cummins and Chrysler have a long and important history together,” said Dave Crompton, vice president and general manager of midrange engines at Cummins. “The Chrysler business continues to be a key part of our midrange engine business, and we’re proud to continue working with Chrysler to develop best-in-class products that customers can depend on.”


Cummins and Chrysler first partnered to offer a turbo-diesel in the 1989 Ram. Both parties anticipated sales to remain under 5000 units. Instead, over 20,000 Cummins-powered Rams were sold that year, and Cummins has gone on to provide over 1.7 million engines for use in heavy-duty Ram models.


Today, nearly 80 percent of Ram heavy-duty buyers opt for the current Cummins option, which is a 6.7-liter turbo-diesel I-6.


Neither party will disclose how long the new deal will last, although Cummins describes it as a “multiyear extension” of its current contract.

Lets face it without the Cummins Dodge would have a hard time selling 2500 and 3500 trucks.
