It's a popular misconception that automakers like Ford or Chrysler own Cummins. In fact, Cummins Turbo Technologies is a stand-alone business that manufactures and sells a whole range of diesel and natural gas-powered engines.
The Cummins brand is known for its reliable and durable engines. Expect the 5.9-liter engine to travel between 300,000 and 400,000 miles. The 6.7-liter engine falls between those two at 350,000 with the recommended maintenance and no modification.
Long-haul trucks, buses, light-duty cars, and heavy machinery for the construction, farming, and mining industries all employ Cummins engines today because of their reliability, fuel efficiency, and low emissions.
"It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste." - Henry Ford
