    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?

    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...
