RE: Mercedes Diesel in Dodge Ram Pickups
Issue 46 of my TDR magazine has a Ram 1500 QC test truck from Cummins in it with a 5.6L V-8 displayed power is 350hp and 550lb torque. there is also a 4.2L V-6 version being tested in the 1500's that pushing 270hp and 400lb torque.
now, since DC owns Dodge, and DC also owns Mercedes, and they make their own diesel engines, it would only seem proper to use inhouse engines that mercedes produces.
now, just in the same tests of the 5.6L V8 and the 4.6L V6 diesels from Cummins being put in the 1500's and a mercedes Diesel goin in the 2/3500's is still in the test phase and wheither it will happen or not is still left to be seen. too many Ram owners who have the 5.9L Cummins ISB engine are already fussing about the idea of Dodge being forced away from Cummins in their 2/3500 series trucks
