Of course, a 6.7L Cummins I-6 is the authentic mill, but it’s not irregular for Allison automatic transmissions—which are paired with Duramaxes in GM trucks—to be swapped into Dodge Ram pickups like this one particular. So devoid of in fact observing the powerplant, we’ll obtain into the engine declare (for now) and hope that whoever picks it up for $13,900—or less—gives us a shout to affirm precisely what is actually underneath the hood.
