    Is Chrysler dropping Cummins completely?

    Read that Nissan will have a new V8 diesel available in their trucks.

    Does this mean that since Fiat merged with Chrysler, the next Dodge trucks will have IVECO engines in them?

    Maybe I'm reading too much into it?

    Its hard to say. I am a Dodge guy. Dodge no longer makes trucks. The brand is now know as RAM. No where on the new Rams will you find the dodge name. The 1500 is rumored to be getting a smaller diesel . Not using a Cummins may go bad for them. A lot of people buy a dodge to get the Cummins. Last time I was thinking of buying a new Dodge 2500 4x4 I was told they weren't made in the U S , so I put off buying one. I will not buy a truck that isn't made here. Its looking like my next truck will be a Ford F250.

    I edited the title. Substituted "Dodge" with "Chrysler".

    I'm going back to Ford trucks as well. Might keep a low mileage Dodge with the 5.9 on the ranch.

    Probably should've just asked about Fiat, since Chrysler is not in control. Those little Fiat cars are gonna take some time to get used to seeing them on the roads.

    Maybe back in the day, but they've been working on a V6 for half tons for Dodge for a long time. It was promised at various times in the past only to have Dodge drop the program every time. Cummins was supposedly ready to build them if they would buy X amount. At least that was the rumors I was reading on a Dodge/Cummins site for several years.

    I saw the Wall Street Journal headline on Cummins supplying engines to Nissan; but since I don't subscribe to the WSJ, I couldn't read the article.

    Whether Dodge will drop Cummins in favor of IVECO engines is probably up to the Fiat bosses; but M-B never forced them to put Benz diesels in Dodge pickups when Mercedes owned Chrysler.

    As far as the brand name is concerned; Chrysler can call them Rams, Ewes, Llamas, Camels, Boogers, Dingle-berries, or whatever, and they'll still be Dodge's to me. As Shakespeare said, "A rose by any other name would still smell just as sweet."

    Benz did not want to weaken their brand by sharing parts with Chrysler. They feared people would just buy Chrysler products to get Benz quality at deep discount. That was one of the main reasons the partnership failed.

    The way I understand it the diesel in the half ton so to speak class isn't going to be a cummins. I understand that some material earlier was out that a cummins engine would be used so in that sense you could say dropping cummins.

    The Nissan didn't even offer an eight foot bed when I was looking, Or was it a regular cab or was it either or both.

    Strange about Iveco. I had been studying the fuso cantor trucks perhaps a year ago which is what the mitsubishi fuso apparently has become. They are using a small diesel engine make in a partnership joint venture with fiat the way it appeared to me. Iveco is the truck they clearly contrast themselves with in the advertising material. I would expect what I found and read could be searched up. Fiat is essentially New holland and Case IH In USA tractor stuff. I get the impression they are investing quite a bit in engine development.
