The 2021 RAM Heavy Duty with Cummins 6.7L Turbo Diesel now offers 1,075 lb.-ft. of best-in-class torque and 420 horsepower

The legendary Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) 6.7L Turbo Diesel engine is even more powerful, reliable, and durable than ever with its MY21 update.

Partnering with RAM to help deliver exceptional vehicle performance and towing characteristics, Cummins tapped into the resources that make it a global power leader to deliver an even stronger engine for 2021. The net result is an engine that produces amazing torque and horsepower. With a new calibration application to the patented sliding nozzle variable geometry and a 2000 bar capable fuel delivery system to provide increased low-end torque and improved high-end power, only minor adjustments were necessary to the legendary in-line 6 engine to ensure class leading performance.
