The facts ... "During the mid 1990s all the way up through 2015 you could indeed get a Ford with a Cummins Engine. A match made in diesel heaven you say! Cummins engines were installed in Fordís heavy duty F650/F750 line of trucks. The F650/F750 were manufactured in Escobedo, Mexico under a joint venture with Cummins and Navistar. In fact Ford offered a plethora of diesel options including the PowerStroke and even Caterpillar Engines for multiple years. During 2011-2015 the Cummins 6.7L was initially the standard engine for the F650/F750 along with Allison Transmissions.

Back in 1990 Ford Motor Company purchased 10.8% of common stock in the company. The company even had a seat on the Board their own Vice President (Kenneth R. Dabrowski)Then in 1997 Cummins purchased the shares (1.3 Million worth) back from Ford and that was that. You have to think back to the early years of the Dodge Ram. Cummins rolled out the Dodge Ram with the Cummins 5.9 L in 1989. The partnership with Chrysler was relativity new Ford decided to make an investment in Cummins. The rival between Ford and Dodge was virtually non-existent in 1990 and isnít like what it is today. In fact Cummins really saved The Dodge Ram; the brand was a very distant 3rd behind GM and Ford trucks. So to put this to rest once and for all, yes Ford did own some stock in Cummins but really wasnít an exclusive partnership between the two titans.

I can only say that I read a press release saying that fiat is moving production of the ram truck from Mexico to michigan where they are dumping 1 billion into that plant. I don't think they will stop upgrades like the aisen (spelling) transmission to the truck.
2012 F350 6.7 L dually, 2013 3800RE with 6 pt leveling, Sumitomo 17.5" load range h tires, Samsung 18 cu ft residential fridge, 8k Morryde I.S. with disc brakes. Full timing since 2012.
