I was in Peoria yesterday and saw a new 6.7 on the lot so I stopped and looked at it for giggles. Salesman come out (of course) and offers to start it for me. Of course I say sure. (Its really quiet. We get to talking and...
He says " this should be a really good motor, similar to a Cummins."
Me " really? who makes the Cummins"
Salesman " Ford"
Me "Really"
Him " Absolutley"

Believe me or not but thats what I heard. Ive never heard that they made Cummins diesels before. Anyone else heard or knew that?

LoL is this a serious question? Ford uses cummins engines but ford owns Volvo.

Wow. Usually its "ya' know furd makes cummings" It all stems from back in the day when Ford owned a small portion of Cummins. They had absolutely zero to do with how they operated, and certainly never made anything with the cummins name on it. I wish they could get the cummins in a light duty Ford.

No. Cummins makes Cummins. Ford has never built their own diesel until recently, the 6.7 Scorpion. The only way to get a Cummins in a Ford from the factory is to get a medium duty or bigger truck.

Before that fords diesels were made by international. Ford owned 10% of cummins a long time ago like someone else said but no longer has any interest in cummins

Ford has made there own diesels before this new 6.7. I did not say cummins makes volvo I said Ford owns Volvo. Cummins is different from Ford all together.

The salesmans a idiot...Its completely false. Ford has nothing to do with Cummins, Cummins just supplies engines for Fords 650's and 750's...Stupid people...

Cummins is a stand alone company that is seeing a big reduction in engine sales with one of the largest truck manufactures ie Freightliner is using Mercedes engines. International is building their own class 8 engines.

Ford has been building diesel engines in Britian for years.

Ford also uses Cummins in their light duty trucks in different countries I believe but I know this doesn't help here unless you drive back from Brazil or maybe Mexico.

HA, sales ppl.

Sounds like the guy who tried to sell me a 1100lb hitch weight 5th wheel to pull with my Durango SUV. I never imagined myself walking out of a place so fast before that day....

Ford used to hold the blue prints to cummins but then they sold it all to cummins.

Any way to get these trucks? I am a ford man but I'm not interested in the 6.4 grenades they put out from 2008-2010 and I dont want to take any chances with the new scorpion diesel. I have 2 6.0 dumps that have been great and a gas pick up with the 5.4 and I need a new pick up and I want a diesel. I may just go with another gas pick up unless I can get the ford with the cummins. :dizzy:

I think those Cummins powered Fords are 4 cylinder and right hand drive. They don't meet the emmission regulations in North America.

Sick and tired of the epa. If they really want to make a difference why don't we just have nuke power plants. Plus never mind how much that volcano polluted maybe the epa can cite Iceland.

I didnt really think about that. I guess that wouldn't work. I guess I have to get an 07 6.0 with low miles or a gasser.

LOL...I need a pick up for me to drive around in and do estimates, go to the store and what not. Extended cab short bed loaded with leather. I will use it to plow but other than that it wont get worked very much. It will probably have a tonneaou cover on it. I have thought about buying an L8000 or something but we really don't do enough heavy work. Most we do are patios and retaining walls and the 1 tons work ok. Was thinking about getting a backhoe for some jobs where the mini and skid steer are kind of undersized but until then I will stick with the one tons. Most of the hardscape work we do is residential so I really dont need a big truck although there are plenty of times it would have made life easier.
