I believe that the engine was going to be produced in the Tonawanda Engine Plant. Looks like some folks are in for a difficult time if there's no work.

What is your source that claims Ford owns Cummins?

I'm quite sure Ford doesn't own Cummins.

At one time (back in the last century) Ford had about a 25% interest in Cummins - they have since divested themselves of that interest, but the rumors persist...

YUP - if Ford DID own Cummins, you can be sure there would NOT have been International diesels under their hoods! As it was, Ford had to pay extra to get Cat and Cummins engines into their F-650 class trucks - and interesting that even at that, the 650's had the same Cummins as in the Dodge 2500 class (3/4 ton) trucks...

Sure hope Ford hits a home run with this one - and that the REST of the lead article is more honest and accurate than THIS humorous blurb:

Quote:
The new 6.7-liter diesel engine also shares the Super Duty’s legendary reliability and durability while enabling best-in-class towing capability of 24,400 pounds.
BECAUSE, if this new engine is no better than the previous trouble-prone 6.0 diesel V8 in terms of "legendary reliability", Ford is gonna be in for a world of hurt!

And for sure, the USA really NEEDS to nurse our domestic automaking capability back into good health!

They're probably trying to ride on the reliability of the 7.3 diesel. Which was a good engine until they got greedy.

RustyJc, That looks like an engine I escorted from the railroad siding to a gas storage facility down the road. I was a Motorcycle Patrolman with the LSP and this was in the early seventies. I think it weighed about 500k pounds or more. You should have seen the trailer they carried this thing on!!

ABSOLUTELY - the 7.3 was the last of Fords (International's!) GOOD diesel engimes!

But those were over *10 years* ago...

We'll have to wait to see about any "legendary reliability and durability"
