Cummins, the company credited with popularizing diesel engines in light-to-medium-duty pickups, has been honored with Chrysler Groups’ Supplier Award in the Sustainability category.
Cummins revolutionized light truck powertrain efficiency in 1989 with a new diesel for the Dodge (now Ram) pickup. Ford followed with a diesel in 1994 and GM added a diesel in 2004. Today, 80 percent of Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup buyers opt for Cummins 6.7-liter Turbo Diesel.
