Ford has recently re-uped their contract with Navistar. I think for another 10 years. I have not heard anything about Cat in a Dodge and highly doubt it.

If they were going to put a different motor in Dodge's it would be Mercedes. I think in the future that's what will happen or a little detroit.

ford bought 10 percent of cummins.. its stock buying to make money fellas. ford isnt going to use cummins. they will likely go in house in a few years, if there problems with navstar dont clear up.

At one time Ford had 10% in Cummins. Its since been bought back by Cummins. I really wish this rumor would end. Ford aint gettin Cummins, no-way no-how. Remember, Ford turned Cummins down back in the 80s...

DIE RUMOR DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
