The RAM Cummins 6.7-Liter Turbo Diesel Engine

RAM uses the 6.7-liter turbo diesel Cummins diesel engine in its RAM 2500 and 3500 trucks. RAM also uses the Cummins in the 3500, 4500, and 5500 chassis cabs. 

Because diesel engines constantly run in commercial trucks, RAM came up with a cooling system that rejects heat 25% better than the old system. It uses double transmission coolers and radiators, a charge air cooler, and a more efficient fan.
