Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dealers have had 2011 Ram HD Trucks on the ground for a few months now, but the big news with the diesels is what is NOT equipped on the trucks.

The Cummins 6.7L Turbo Diesel meets stringent 50-state emission requirements without the need of diesel exhaust fluid. The 2011 Ram is THE ONLY Diesel truck on the market for 2011 in the US that DOES NOT require DEF. The absence of DEF will undoubtedly save Ram owners time and money throughout the life of the truck. (Trucks equipped with DEF will not run unless there is DEF in the tank.)

To meet such requirements, the 6.7 is equipped with an EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system, a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT), and a diesel particulate filter designed to reduce diesel particulate matter by more than 90 percent. A new, higher-pressure version of the Bosch direct injection system is used.

The 6.7 L Cummins is the latest in the B-series engines, introduced mid year in 2007. Rated at 350 HP & 650 lb-ft at only 1500 RPM, it is also the most powerful B-series ever offered. It also includes a segment-exclusive standard exhaust brake.
