Cummins Inc. on Wednesday, Feb. 3, announced a multiyear extension of its current agreement with Chrysler Group LLC. Cummins will supply 6.7-liter Turbo Diesel engines for Ram Heavy Duty pickups and Chassis Cab trucks while continuing to grow its partnership with Chrysler, which began 21 years ago. Cummins has produced more than 1.7 million Cummins Turbo Diesel engines for Dodge Ram Heavy Duty trucks since 1989. Today, more than 80 percent of Ram Heavy Duty truck customers purchase their truck with the Cummins Turbo Diesel.

“Cummins and Chrysler have a long and important history together,” says Dave Crompton, vice president and general manager of Cummins’ MidRange Engine Business. “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.”
