I was reading on Yahoo where Cummins is going to build light truck diesel engines in Mississippi. I wonder if we are going to have another choice in tow vehicles?

Don't know about that.

As long as Dodge has a contract with Cummins, I doubt you'll see a cummins in a Rice Burner. I would really like to see a Cummins in a Ford F450. Get one tomorrow morning. No powerchoke for me.

Dodge plans to use both a new V-8 Diesel in their 1/2 pickups and a new V-6 in SUV's like the Durango and Jeep Cherokee. The V-8 Diesel is rated up around 350hp. They will be in next years model line.

-They work together - see the excerpt below.
---------------------------------------------

Nissan Motor Co. and Chrysler Corp. say they have come to two agreements for the supply of products between companies.

Nissan says it will also manufacture an all-new, fuel-efficient car based on a Chrysler concept and design. This new segment entry for Chrysler will be sold in North America, Europe and other global markets in 2010, and manufactured at Nissan's Oppama Plant in Japan.

Chrysler, in turn, will manufacture a full-size pickup for Nissan.

Based on a Nissan design, the trucks will be manufactured at Chrysler's Saltillo Assembly Plant in Mexico.

To lighten the burden upon Saltillo, Chrysler says it will shift volume from Mexico to its U.S.-based assembly plants that produce pickup trucks.

Sales of the pickup in North America will start in 2011.
