The Cummins 6BT is the most famous truck engine of B series. The 5.9l Cummins engine was the first diesel engine used in full-size pickup trucks as an alternative to the big V8 gasoline engines. The production was started in 1984. It was designed as an engine for Case agricultural equipment. But in the future, the 6BT was widely used in light, medium and some heavy-duty trucks and buses. The turbocharged 12 Valve Cummins engine found huge popularity in 1989-1998 model year Dodge Ram pickup trucks for a massive torque at low rpm and all engine speed range, and a better fuel mileage compares to Dodge's gasoline V8 engines.
