6.7L may be on its way out!

Was reading that the VP of Chrysler said he is tossing around the idea of dumping the 6.7L for a 5.0L V8 Cummins instead...

Quote:
“Think about, ‘Could I also put it into a three-quarter-ton truck? Does every guy need a 6.7-liter diesel?’ It could certainly package in a heavy duty,” Veltri said.
God lets hope not! He may be implying that you have two options, but maybe not... Can anyone decipher this better?

I think they are looking/impying at it as an option for people that want a diesel but are not towing/hauling heavy loads. Can't see a 5.0L doing the job that the 6.7 does.
If trhey dropped the 6.7 for a 5.0 that would be a huge mistake.

Yeah, especially with Ford and GM dropping these new motors with HUGE numbers!

To me that sounds like one of the diesels they were talking about stuffing in a half ton. I can't see it producing big enough numbers, while operating clean and cool, to tow or work hard.

the 5.0 is supposed to go into the 1/2ton one of these days

Lets just say not quite stock.

Their thoughts are to put the new 5.0 Cummins V8 in both the 1500's and the 2500's as an option. This will help out with the CAFE ratings as well as help with production numbers for the 5.0 diesel. I'm sure that Cummins is asking for a production number that Dodge doesn't want to commit to for just the 1500's. Most of the 1/2 ton guys are cheap and are having a hard time swallowing the $40k price tag on the current Hemi trucks and are more concerned with heated steering wheels and how many cup holders they have. That's the main reason that you can get a Hemi in so many vehicles. They have production costs way down since they are built in Mexico and are used in half of their cars.

that was what i got the feeling to, the 5.0 was the "light duty" diesel option and the 6.7 would be the "heavy duty" diesel option making them the only manufacture with 2 diesel engine options . . .

If they can just get there first it would give them a killer edge, First diesel optioned 1500 & first 2 diesel options for the 2500 . . .

They could always option that 5.0L as a bigger motor for the Dakota and maybe bring back the Durango or a bigger full-size SUV option with the 5L v8.
