COLUMBUS, Ind. — A new Cummins product was unveiled at the North American Auto Show in Detroit this week. The 6.7L turbo diesel engine will power 2019 heavy duty RAM pickup trucks.
The engine comes in two variants. The standard output 370 horsepower engine has 850 pound-feet of torque, and the high output 400 horsepower engine offers a record-setting 1,000 pound-feet of torque. RAM trucks will now provide their owners with unprecedented payload and towing capabilities.
The engines are made at the Cummins Walesboro plant, south of Columbus.
Along with Cummins’ own one-hundredth anniversary, 2019 marks thirty years of partnership between the engine maker and RAM.
