Cummins has produced its 2,000,000th engine for Ram Trucks...
The milestone engine, which is a completely operable version of the 350 hp/800 lb-ft High Output 6.7L built at the CMEP engine plant in Columbus, Indiana, won't be destined for service, however. It will go on display, and begin a tour around the U.S.
Number 2 million is distinguished by a "Cummins Red" rocker box and valve cover (as shown in the photo above).
President and CEO of Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Fred Diaz, had this to say about the Cummins-Ram partnership: "The Ram Truck-Cummins diesel partnership is one of the industry's most enduring and certainly fitting of such a tribute. Both companies have benefited greatly, but Ram diesel customers are the real beneficiaries... Every day they experience the toughness and capability a Cummins-powered Ram can deliver."
Did you know the first Cummins engine produced for Chrysler was in 1988, at the Rocky Mount Engine Plant in Rocky Mount, North Carolina? We didn't until today. Starting in 1992, production of the 5.9L shifted to CMEP (Cummins Midrange Engine Plant) in Columbus, Indiana.
