It might due I heard the rumors as well but the big question is percentage wise of the total truck order with hand shaker VS the automatique transmisson.i wonder if Dodge is going to lose the manual shift like Ford and Chevy because its nice to have choices
That would be the dumbest decision EVER the only thing keeping them going is CUMMINS and a MANUAL period everything else sucks on a Dodge except the Exhaust Brake sometimes it works to much IMO.i wonder if Dodge is going to lose the manual shift like Ford and Chevy because its nice to have choices
This is a true statement. Trq rateings will go to 800lbs, but the hp will stay at 350. As for statment's on the manual tranny, dodge will be keeping the manual tranny. Reps for dodge claim they realize the importance of a manual tranny for many buyer's, specificly the 3500 and up market. I dont recall power rateings being raised for the manual tranny however. I also read where there will be a 3.73 and a 4.10 axle ratio avaiable for the 3500, instead of just one ratio like ford and gm. Kudos to dodge for giveing the buyer more drivetrain options...When I read the article it was not a HP increase it was a torque increase and only under certain conditions. I believe the article also states the high output would not be available for the standards.
I am not sure but you can check with the dealer to find out but I doubt it unless they are retroactive simauir what the Ford done with their 6.7 V-8 motour.My 2011 (with the auto) is currently on order. It is scheduled to be shipped 2/24. Do you think I will get the upgraded CTD?
Then I got the link from one magizine company which I get it pretty often and got confirmed details The CV ( HP ) rating will stay at 350 but will gain up to 46 CV at highway speed so let me post the link before it get out of the hand.
increase power rating for 6.7 Cummins engine
Hope that clear up couple details here.
