6.7L Cummins Engine in Ram 3500

Cummins Diesel Engine

Cummins made their first diesel engine close to 100 years ago, and it was designed for farm use — a lot has changed since then. The new 6.7L Cummins delivers a steady flow of power alongside reduced noise output. The strong yet light graphite iron engine block works to help cut down on fuel consumption without affecting power, and the engine is B20 biodiesel compatible.

It performs with a 16.21:1 compression ratio, features a Bosch high-pressure common-rail fuel system, and comes paired with a Holset HE351VE variable geometry turbocharger. You’ll find it in Ram trucks.

Ford's Power Stroke Diesel Engine

Power Stroke Diesel Engine

You’ll find the Power Stroke diesel engine in Ford trucks. It uses a large single turbocharger and smart exhaust brake function. It’s one of the most powerful diesel engines available, which might be why Ford trucks continue to deliver best-in-class specs for towing, payload, and other capability factors.

How does the Ford PowerStroke engine deliver such impressive performance? Aside from this engine options massive displacement, discerning drivers will notice its Pushrod OHV 32-valve cam-in-block valvetrain, and its 3.90 inch bore by 4.25-inch stroke specification.

6.6L Duramax Diesel Engine

Duramax Diesel Engine

The 6.7L Cummins and the 6.7L Power Stroke share the same displacement, while the 6.6L Duramax comes in last. In terms of power, it comes in just between the Cummins and the Power Stroke. Like those two engines, it is also B20 biodiesel compatible.

The Duramax Diesel engine is designed with its own set of unique features, designed to provide more of the power you need without compromising on fuel economy or longevity. These include an electronically-controlled variable-geometry turbocharger, a Venturi Jet Drain oil separator, and cold-start technology for peace of mind.
