Approximately 75% of all RAM 2500 and 3500 Heavy-Duty pickup owners chose the optional Cummins Turbo Diesel.

This diesel engine features Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) after treatment that uses Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), contributing to a 10 percent increase in fuel economy and best-in-class 15,000-mile oil-change intervals, keeping more of your hard-earned money in your pocket. Owners also benefit from a new cooling system that affords 25 percent more heat-rejection capacity. A high-efficiency fan, dual radiators, dual transmission coolers, and a charge-air cooler lower operating temperatures and deliver improved performance.  Clean, efficient, dependable and durable.
