I agree on the Suckish Part of the Dakota out of Production. Only Reason i hated them was you could get a 1500 with the 5.9L v8 for just as much as a 5.2L V8. seemed a crammed also if u had one. I mean I can Sprawl all out in my 1500 like my Grandparents Buick Roadmaster haha. I think Cummins & Dodge will last a while.

Well Ford only owns about 30% of cummins stock, the same kind of stock you can buy. So if you have more money to invest than Ford (which after this ecoboost flop you probably will) you can own more of Cummins than Ford.

Ford does not own Cummins. Cummins is completely independent and when Ford, in the early 00's, attempted a hostile takeover, Cummins board of directors successfully stopped it. What is true is that Alan Mulally was the president of Ford and on the Cummins board of directors, but so is 3 Chrsyler executives. By rules enacted since the attempted hostile takeover by Ford, Cummins now has a stipulation in their stock that no one, besides Cummins Corp themselves, may own more than a 10% share of their stock. Ford fanboys have been saying a variation of this for 30 years-since Cummins and Dodge started kicking their ***.

p.s. Ford also just spent around $5 billion developing their own diesel since splitting with Navistar. Kinda funny for a company that owns Cummins to spend so much money on an inferior product, huh?

..... weren't they in the same boat with Chrysler & GM when the economy dumped?... 5 Million Dollars for an unimpressive 6.4L (with Injector Failures & EGR) and Now the 6.7L

They claim they spent $5 BILLION. I'm thinking they are exaggerating the # by, oh, $4.5 billion to make Fordies think they went all out. But the point remains, if they owned Cummins, why develop their own? Even if, as Fordies claim, Cummins is contractually obligated to continue selling to Dodge, why not use a diesel specialty company to develop their new engine? This rumor of Ford(or GM) owning Cummins has been around since 1989 and it is the wishful thinking of Fordies and Chevy wannabes.

I have seen a Caterpillar in a Ford pickup. Looks like they would go that route. Same big rig name recognization as Cummins.
