Cummins Inc. earlier this year announced a multiyear extension of its current agreement with the Chrysler Group to supply 6.7L Turbo Diesel engines for Dodge Ram Heavy Duty pickups and Chassis Cab trucks while continuing to grow its 21-year-old partnership with Chrysler. Cummins has produced more than 1.7 million Cummins Turbo Diesel engines for 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 Filtration also announced the launch of the Fleetguard FS2: Filter-in-Filter fuel system technology for Ram trucks with 6.7L Cummins turbo diesel engines. The new FS43257 filter assembly provides the filtration performance of two filters in a single, reusable filter canister. To minimize waste associated with fuel filter changes, only the filter cartridge and canister O-ring need to be changed during service. The sturdy composite canister, plus the water-in-fuel (WIF) sensor and filter drain valve, can be reused continuously.
