Good luck with a Cummins Titan,a Titan is the least trucklike truck Iv ever come across.After 1.5 years of work doing landscaping, towing a small open trailer around town this thing was spent.Cracked leaf springs, slipping trans,bed dented to hell (made of tinfoil ) and milage worse than any.Hope that a Titan is not where Cummings ends up , that would be a shame.This comes from a guy thats owned all American pick ups till he went Titan,he is trading in for a 6.6 Duramax and getting beat on trade-in.

Maybe they are thinking that if they can improve the Titan then anything is possible ?

With Dodges connection to Cummins maybe the Titan tester is just to throw people off of the real plan ? If this tester is a 4 banger it would be great in a Jeep and there are a lot of rumors floating around about a diesel Wrangler ?

I thought that a diesel Jeep had to do with Chrysler being in with Mercedes (something Jeep had Mercedes power) and that marrage has ended.It seems to me all the companies that started developing small (non HD) power plants bailed close vto the same time.GM had a 4.5 Duramax ready to go,Cummins with a 4-banger Ford too had something and Mahindra bailed also.Mabey they knew something,like these smaller Diesel motors just cant be made to produce enough power for us Americans and get better milage than a gasser. With a DPF and DEF crap they must have on them to pass emissions. If you get 1 ro 2 more MPGs than a gas motor why bother with diesel.

Guys the Mercedes engines are done in Chrysler products. We know for sure, I mean 100% for sure that a 3.0 liter VM Motori diesel will be in the Grand Cherokee in 2013 and they are trying to make a case for a 2.8 liter motor for the Wrangler. To me they should just stick with federalizing one motor, the 3.0. It is a decent size for many applications and would allow for economies of scale. It could be in the Ram 1500, the large cars like the 300 and Charger along with all of the larger SUV's like the Durango and Grand Cherokee.

Combine it with the 8 speeds that are coming up in the same time and I can imagine very nice highway mileage and respectable city mileage. It has around 240 HP and 400 lbs of torque. It might be a little different with Urea or other things but this motor was designed with Euro 6 Emissions compliance in mind and that standard is about 97% of the way to T2B5 so the cost really shouldn't be much more. My uneducated guess is that it will just use a bit more Urea per mile than the Euro edition and that will be the only major change.

I'd certainly consider it in the Ram 1500. I bet if the costs weren't too outlandish there would be a ton of fleet buyers wanting it. With higher demand and more sales comes lower pricing.

Truth is Jappy trucks just are not built as sturdy as American trucks . Which is one reason I'm still in my Ranger . If you haul a heavy load regularly Chevrolet , Ford or Dodge will hands down outlast Tundra , Titan ,Tacoma , Frontier and the Ridgeline .

My 1994 S-10 was no where near as sturdy as my friend's 1994 Toyota subcompact truck. We bought our trucks at somewhat the same time. I went about 100 miles in his truck last year kayaking and it was tight.

I am thrilled at the prospect of a Nissan diesel!!!!
