Cummins to produce high-performance, light-duty diesel engines
COLUMBUS, IND. - Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) today announced it has reached agreement with a major automotive manufacturer serving the North American market to produce and market a light-duty, diesel-powered engine. For competitive reasons, Cummins original equipment manufacturer partner in the venture has asked to remain confidential.
As part of the agreement, Cummins will develop and manufacture a family of high-performance, light-duty diesel engines for a variety of automotive applications in vehicles below 8,500 pounds gross vehicle weight, including standard pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles. Certain bus, marine and industrial applications also will be served by this engine family...
Would that news happen to be on the light duty side or the heavy duty side of things? Would you say it would be worth 4 beers in a row, 6 side-by-side? And what is the displacement on those beers? How many horses would I need to transport said news?Originally Posted by flywgn
