Not hardly?????????????The Duramax, gets better milage...more hp...more tq. Gm is not buying dodge!mydeuce;1598591; said:ABSOLUTELY. Ladies and Gentlemen, the perfect marriage could happen. The Bad *** Cummins Diesel married up to an Allison Tranny. No way it could get better than that.
If GM buys Dodge they will still keep building Dodge trucks the Dodge way and GM trucks the GM way. And it gets much better than Cummins/Allison, It is the Duramax/Allison combo that is kicking butt!:03LB-7dmax;1598606; said:Not hardly?????????????The Duramax, gets better milage...more hp...more tq.

That would be a big assumption. Not much changed when Daimler Benz entered the picture, at least not initially, Have to assume the same would happen with new onwer. Remember, these companies are owned so far above design and engineering levels that it would not be another division of GM like Chevy/GMC are, but an entirely seperate product group. Kind of like GM's Hughes satellite division.IROCDave;1599344; said:The jist of my question is this, IF GM purchases CHRY-CO would a die hard DODGE / CUMMINS owner buy a dodge truck built by dodge while dodge is a subsiderary of GM. Assuming that new dodge products would share some of GMs parts and engineering.
cummins contract did get re-signed, they are supplying the engines for the 4500 and 5500 series trucks...also for the regular pickup segment also.porterz;1599906; said:Cummins contract is up right now.. did anyone hear if it actually got resigned?? And I agree.. cummins aint shi* to the D/A.. look how much work those poor fellas do to their trucks just to push the truck to pull or tool around town.. we spend 700 on efi live, or 1200 on PPE and we blow them out of the water....
Still rocking strong in the DMAXs
sorry if i catch some heat for this...and to each his own...but if you buy a truck based on the truck around the engine and the rest of the drivetrain why exactly is it you are buying dodge trucks to begin with....you will get no argument from me that the engine is great...but the tranny is junk...and every didge i have seen the body goes way before the motor...v8440;1598589; said:As a diehard dodge guy, I might buy a gm with the cummins. It would depend on my assessment of the truck around the engine and the rest of the drivetrain.
