Dodge is getting ready to add the Cummins powertrain to its latest models. The 2017 version of the new truck that Dodge is planning to release is going to take a new Cummins powertrain. The model is going to hit the market next year and here are a few information that are available about the latest possibility of getting a new model.
The initial vehicle that is supposed to get the Cummins powertrain is the Ram truck which is one of the most popular models that has come out from Dodge. The vehicle has been around from 1933 and has already made a name for itself and brought a lot of fame to Dodge as well. It is not only a good model but a very reliable one.
Adding a Cummins diesel powertrain to a Dodge model is the next step. They are planning of expanding their lineup and adding new models so why not starting updating the best that they have to offer first. The update will also consider adding new design cues and will also make some adjustments to the look and design of the vehicle and will not solely rely on adding a diesel engine only.
We have managed to come up with many fruitful information about this update and have studied the announcements that came about it, so keep reading the review and find out ore about the latest 2017 Dodge Cummins news.
2017 Dodge Cummins diesel engine news
We are going on by a lot of rumors that have been made about this. The claim is that the 2017 Dodge Cummins engine update is going to come very soon and that a lot of people have been hyped about this. Dodge is certainly making a lot of effort to make this thing work and are hoping that this is going to bring a new age for their trucks. The Ram truck is already a popular model but we do not see what direction it can go to reach the next level. This is where the potential diesel Cummins comes into play. It will add power to the truck and make it what you have wished for. It will affect the vehicle’s performance and make it an overall better car with new and improved specs.
What some assumptions are concentrated on is that the engine that it is going to use is going to be the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, which is a classic Cummins design. This one is going to add a very useful injection of power to the Dodge models, especially the Ram. There are also talks of utilizing a lesser option which is the 3.5-liter TDI V6 engine which Cummins has also provided. Making an effort to make the fuel efficiency better is going to need the full potential of this engine but will also need some designing and manufacturing on the part from the materials of the car. Lightweight materials are also needed here and will be an important part in getting the specs to a desired level. Keep in mind that these are still unofficial information and not a lot of it is still made public, but we can confirmed that these are the most desired and also most obvious choices when it comes to the engine.
There are still rumors that say that both of the mentioned variants are going to be used and offered. This would perhaps be the best of both worlds as fans are going to be very excited from the prospect of seeing and using both types of engines and being able to chose the desired one. The most likely transmission paired with both of them is going to be the 8-speed automatic transmission system, but no specs or news about the performance have been made.
2017 Dodge Cummins design
Dodge is going to add a lot of new things to its 2017 Dodge Cummins model. What the design is speculated on being is that it is going to adopt some new features and is going to be greatly larger than before. We are expected to get a new and improved model which is going to be much larger than the one that we had last time. This is also due to the engine change and a more powerful engine is going to be able to sustain the shape of this kind of a car and is going to be able to allow it to achieve whatever one needs to do with it. The bumpers are going to be change both front and back to make the vehicle stronger and larger, while the some other refreshed features are also going to make it on the exterior of the vehicle.
The interior is going to be completely modernized. We expect to see a lot of contemporary additions that are going to make things even more comfortable than they used to be. As they are concentrating on adding power to the engine, they are not coming short on comfort as well. They plan to make some new trims available on the inside and are adding a cohesive and useful cabin. It is going to be easier to power the car and drive it and also enable greater visibility due to the updated windshields. Various parts of equipment are being added and made available, so you can chose from a luxury array of added parts that we are hoping are going to make the usability of this vehicle even higher.
Price and release date
The 2017 Dodge Cummins vehicle is still not confirmed and there is no official release date stated. As rumors have started to emerge, we are expecting to see it next year but without an exact release date. The model might appear by the end of the year but we are not sure when. The price is also still not available and we are hoping to clear some details on that as the car get so its finishing production stage.
