Dodge's 5.9-L Cummins Diesel Meets “Clean Fuel Fleet” Standards
The 5.9-liter Standard Output Cummins Diesel, delivering up to 460 lb.-ft. of torque and up to 250 horsepower, is now certified as a low emission engine, according to DaimlerChrysler.
The automaker says the Cummins diesel has average major overhaul inter-vals of 350,000 miles. The 5.9-liter Cummins inline six has 25 to 30 percent fewer parts than typical V-8 diesels, which means added durability and better reliability. The engine is available in the all-new 2003 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty 2500 pickup, which won Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year award.
