Cummins to Build Light Diesels

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Cummins Inc. recently announced that it has selected the Columbus,
Indiana, engine plant as the production facility for its new family of
light-duty, clean-diesel engines, which the company plans to begin
manufacturing. Preparations for the manufacturing lines are scheduled to
begin in mid-2007.

DaimlerChrysler is said to be the major customer for this engine,
which will be designed to power vehicles below 8,500 pounds gross
vehicle weight. It is rumored that a Dodge Ram 1500 may be offered with
it, along with perhaps Dakota pickups and/or Durango SUVs.
