I had a feeling that is how it would be. Previously they offered the Cummins in 2 different power levels restricting the HO to the 3500 as well. Honestly I think they should just offer the HO across the board as the only diesel option. The other manufacturers only offer 1 diesel option, both more powerful and with more torque than the standard output Cummins.Strange move to exclude the new Cummins with 1000 lb/ft for all but the 3500. Reason?
Are they trying to make the 2500 buyers to move to 3500?
Just google CP4 failure and you can read for days. So, the CP3 that Cummins has run since common rail came out in '03 is very reliable, and if it does fail it just quits and you change it out. Ford and GM have been running the CP4, and it does not do well with the ULSD fuel in the US, it is much, much, much more sensitive to fuel quality issues, and due to the basic design, when a CP4 fails it makes shrapnel that ruins the lines, the rails, the injectors, the relief valves, the rail pressure sensors, etc. So basically it ruins the entire fuel system. GM finally got away from it and went to a Denso system. Ford offers a kit to convert to a CP3. What does that tell you??? Now there are rumors of Ford getting away from the CP4, too.What is the CP4 Issue?
Weird I just watched that for the first time and yeah he does say it's a CP4.2. We asked an engineer at the Ram event why they went to the CP4 and were told that it isn't a CP4 but an RP6. I have even confirmed that since the event.Forgive me, but the information put forth stated CP4.2, and that is not speculation. Here is the lead engineer at Cummins clearly stating it in this video:
