2020 Ram HD Truck Cummins Specs, Numbers – According to one of our internal sources, the Ram Cummins 2020 HD Truck engine would remain at 6.7 liters of displacement. This is probably a brand new engine that, according to our source, will include a compacted graphite cast iron engine block (CGI). Cummins’ current Rams 6.7 uses a standard cast iron block that resists well, but switching to a CGI block has many advantages. First of all, CGI is about 75% stronger than traditional iron, 45% stiffer and twice as resistant to fatigue. These are fantastic features for engines that perceive high pressures and extreme heat like a diesel engine when it’s hard to work. Compacted graphite cast iron blocks also have much better wear characteristics over time than a traditional iron block or aluminum block motor.
2020 Ram HD advantages are the ability to mold a lighter block with the same strength characteristics as a traditional iron block motor. The CGI also has advantages in terms of sound vibrations and hardness compared to an iron block motor, generally operating more quietly. A member of the Forum, iChime, had previously published information on upcoming hard drives that we could confirm with our sources. We have not been able to confirm but we expect 400 hp and 930 lb-ft of torque for the 2500 and 430 hp and 980 lb-ft of torque for the 3500 and 4500 hp.
We hear rumors that the 5.7 Hemi will no longer be available in HD trucks, making it the 6.4 Hemi base and perhaps the only gasoline engine. Although we have announced the upcoming arrival of the upcoming 7.01-inch 426ci Banshee Hemi V8 for the Ram Rebel TR, we have not been able to say whether or not it will be available on hard drives. If this is the case, we expect it to get its own unique “truck setting”, possibly offering a lower HP number than the upcoming Rebel TR, but more torque and more peak torque. low. It’s unlikely we’ll see the 6.2 supercharged next Rebel TRX in an 2020 Ram HD truck.
Even though we do not know for sure that I think it would be a safe bet, I also think we’ll see the 66RFE and 68RFE dropped for the 2020 Ram HD. We believe the 6-speed manual will continue to live, but it has not been confirmed yet. Although we have seen in the spy photos that the 2500 will continue to use the rear suspension design with a helical arm, we believe that the 3500 and later versions will retain the traditional leaf spring configuration. As for the front suspension, we do not know for sure, but we expect the solid front axle to remain based on the spy shots we saw.
