It's been total silence for several months now, but last time I read anything, Cummins and Chrysler had re-opened talks/work on a future small V8 diesel for the 1500 Dodge Ram, and possibly as an option on the 2500-3500 Dodge Ram line. Anyone here have any new info. on whats going on with this? When Chrysler went through the bankruptcy, the whole project was put on "hold", but after the bankruptcy, I remember reading here on the forum via a Pickups.com article that Cummins and Chrysler were back together again on this small V8 diesel project. This could be a great option for the 1/2 ton Dodge Ram line. GM used to offer a diesel option for their 1/2 ton Chevy and GMC PU trucks many years back. I remember that it was initially the 350 CID V8 diesel but it didn't go over very good, as it had a lot of problems. Never the less, I wouldn't expect the Cummins spawned V8 diesel to have those early GM diesel problems. I'm really looking forward to some positive news about this Cummins offering for Dodge.
