Cummins has announced its intention to perform an internal review, looking over its emissions certification processes.
Back in January, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) agreed to pay about $800 million in fines thanks to multiple lawsuits claiming that diesel engines in Ram pickup trucks violated clean-air rules.
Cummins says that conversations with both the U.S. EPA and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) lead to the company reviewing its own certification processes. The review is being conducted by external advisors according to Cummins, to ensure that it is fair and unbiased.
Cummins recently signed another multi-year deal with FCA to supply 6.7-liter diesel engines for Ram Heavy Duty models, so thee is no doubt that both companies want to make sure there are no issues in the future.
We recently took a Ram 3500 with the 6.7-liter diesel and its 1000 lb-ft of torque and loaded it with a 29,000-lb trailer. Check it out in the video below!
