Cummins celebrates diesel engine No. 3 million in Ram trucks

The Columbus-based company celebrated the production of the 3 millionth turbo diesel engine for the Ram truck on Friday at its Midrange Engine Plant at Walesboro.

Ram, a division of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which made a commemorative truck for the 1 millionth engine, plans to give the purchaser of the truck containing the milestone engine a commemorative engine breather cover that Cummins made, said Cummins spokeswoman Katie Zarich.

The Cummins-Ram partnership started in 1988, with a 5.9-liter engine for the Ram 2500 and 3500 models for the 1989 model year. Cummins replaced the 5.9-liter engine with a 6.7-liter version in 2007, which is still produced today and made at the Midrange Engine Plant.

“We’ve had plants that have made 3 million engines, but this is the first time we’ve ever done it for one customer. We’re very unique in that way,” said Nikki Wheeldon, manager of Cummins Midrange Engine Plant.
