Cummins V-8 diesel

I know there has been talk/rumors in the past on a cummins V-8 for 1/2 ton pickups. Seen this today on the allpar website. Supposedly production has started Not much info.
5000 rpm redline is a departure from the in-line 6 rpm levels.
Attached is the link on allpar.

Interesting they are including the possibility of it going into GM Suburban with the 4.5L DMax in the works.

A Cummins V8 would be weird, just so used to them having the Inline 6's. Exciting possibility none the less.

My guess being a high rpm engine its geared more towards performance and fuel mileage and not so much for towing, even in a 1500 truck rating.

I was thinking underhood packaging; V8 is more compact; an aluminum headed V8 will probably be much lighter also.
Engineers have design the vehicle to pass crash tests and a long straight 6 is more of a challenge.

They also made some V6 ones in the 60s, I don't know much about 'em but someone said they were based on the same V8 (555/504)
