It's a Cummins on a Freightliner chassis. Several different dealers told me that the high cost of manufacturing was the reason the FRED was discontinued.
I'm not sure I understand that. Why not just add a Powerstroke to the existing chassis as an option like Ford does with their trucks?
Having said that I have a 2005 Powerstroke that I bought new and it's been through three turbos in 65,000 miles...careful what you wish for.
