Dodge says it will introduce an all-new Cummins turbodiesel engine
in its light-duty pickups after 2009. The new engine is supposed to
provide up to a 30 percent improvement in fuel mileage and 20 percent
less carbon-dioxide emissions compared to an equivalent gas engine,
along with higher torque for better towing.
Also, in March, Dodge will begin selling a 6.7-liter Cummins
turbodiesel in Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks. The new engine meets 2010
standards and can be sold in all 50 states.
