I have not heard that, I do now that Dodge and Cummins has a contract thru 2010. I just can't see it happening, Cat has nothing to offer right now IMO over the 6.7 to make Dodge jump ship.

that rumor has been floatin' in the BS bowl for years. bottom line:

1. ford does not own cummins
2. Cat wants no part of light duty diesel pickups.

Here is a link to Cummins website to answer the question.

Cummins in the past only publically traded 10% of it's company on the stock market. At one time Ford owned 51% or controlling interest of the publically traded stock. So people started the rumor that Ford owned Cummins. It has been at least 5 years ago that the Ford Corp. sold all Cummins stock and no longer has any financial interest in Cummins Inc.

I know a lot of guys that work for CAT, and I've been asking when they were going to jump on putting their engine in a pick up. And the fact is, that they don't really have a small enough engine to go into a pick up. Plus CAT engines are way too expensive. We looked into using one to build a puller, but the cost, and size were a couple of major obstacles.
