By Tom Berg, Truck Editor | April 2, 2014

Cummins commemorated the 25th anniversary of its Turbo Diesel engine in the Ram heavy duty truck lineup by releasing an upfit package for model-year 2014 heavy-duty pickups. First available in a model-year 1989 Dodge Ram pickup truck, the Cummins Turbo Diesel continues to be offered in Ram heavy duty pickups and chassis cabs.

With this 25th Anniversary package, 2014 Ram heavy duty pickup owners will be able to transform their truck into a 25th Anniversary truck with custom badges, floor mats, Katzkin leather interior and a Cummins red breather cover under the hood.

The Cummins Turbo Diesel enhancements over the years include the introduction of full-authority electronic fuel systems, the move from a 12- to 24-valve cylinder head, an increase in displacement from 5.9 to 6.7 liters and the introduction of the VGT Turbocharger with integrated exhaust braking. During the same time period, Cummins has more than doubled the horsepower and torque from its original rating of 160 hp and 400 lb-ft.

“Our 25-year partnership is a testament to the continued advancements of our products and the inherent dependability that our customers demand,” said Dave Crompton, vice president of Cummins Engine Business. “We developed this package to offer our loyal customers a way to celebrate this milestone anniversary.”

The package contains:

  • 25th-Anniversary branded Katzkin leather interior
  • 25th-Anniversary exterior badge emblems
  • 25th-Anniversary floor mats
  • 25th-Anniversary hitch cover
  • Commemorative red engine cover

Cummins has partnered with the Turbo Diesel Register to bring this package to market.
