Cummins Inc. Produces 1,000,000th Diesel Engine for Dodge Ram

May 13, 2003

Cummins Inc. shipped its 1,000,000th diesel engine for the Dodge Ram pickup, marking a 15-year partnership with the Chrysler Group that began with the 1989 model year. According to R.L. Polk registrations, the diesel heavy-duty pickup market has grown over 25 percent, out-pacing gas-powered pickups. "We believe that there are terrific growth opportunities in this market, not only with the Dodge Ram, but in other light-duty applications as well," said Joe Loughrey, Cummins President - Engine Business. "As fuel prices and environmental concerns continue to rise and our clean diesel technology continues to evolve, consumers will gravitate to the fuel economy, power, and performance that a Cummins diesel engine can offer." The millionth Cummins Turbo Diesel engine will be installed in a special Dodge Ram 3500 as the prize in a 2003 Dodge Rodeo sweepstakes. The truck will be on display throughout the country during the year. In December 2003, a winner will be selected to drive away the vehicle at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.
