Cummins introduced the 6BT in 1984, and they designed for use in agricultural equipment. In 1989 Dodge teamed up with Cummins to offer the 5.9L Cummins in their heavy-duty pickup trucks. The Cummins powered Ram quickly became a popular alternative to the large gasoline engines typically found in heavy-duty pickups. Ever since then diesel pickup trucks have grown into a massive market in the US.
MONEY-SAVING FUEL ECONOMY
In 2017, the B6.7 is seeing an average fuel economy improvement of 8.5% for efficiency series ratings (200 – 260 HP) versus our 2013-2016 model year ISB6.7 engines. Some applications, like pickup and delivery, can see up to a 13% improvement. The performance series ratings (280 – 325 HP) of the B6.7 are also seeing increased fuel economy, with an average improvement of 5% and gains of up to 11% in specific duty cycles and applications. How? By focusing on certain components and combustion events, increasing combustion ratios and enhancing turbo machinery efficiency to deliver high torque within the critical RPM range. The medium duty market leader keeps getting better in 2017.
