Cummins: Official Turbodiesel of Ultimate Adventure 2017 – #UA2017Posted in Ultimate Adventure: 2017 on June 26, 2017
Ask any layperson to name a diesel engine manufacturer, and if they come up with a name, it’s probably going to be Cummins. The company’s legendary B-Series I-6 has made its way into countless work vehicles from pieces of heavy equipment to pickups, and its stout 4BT I-4 is a common choice for off-roaders wielding XJ and YJ Jeeps, Ford Rangers, and even fullsize trucks from the 1970s and 1980s.
But that was then and this is now and Cummins has introduces an all-new Repower line of crate engines, headlined by the R2.8 Turbo Diesel I-4. Producing 161 hp and 267 lb-ft, with plenty of down-low diesel torque and impressive efficiency, we’ve seen the transformative effect a Repower engine can have on an off-roader. If you don’t know what we’re talking about, you clearly haven’t been watching “Dirt Every Day” episode with an underwater R2.8-powered 1997 Jeep Wrangler. And of course, Editor Hazel will be leading the UA2017 in the R2.8-powered UACJ-6D project vehicle. For those reasons and more, we’re excited Cummins has signed on as the Official Turbo Diesel of Ultimate Adventure 2017.
