According to Autoedizione, the 3-liter VM V6 diesel engine will be used in a new Dodge pickup truck, as well as the European version of the Durango. Autoedizione claimed that this information comes straight from Chrysler-Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne, and that the Durango might be launched in South America as a Fiat. The V6 diesel, developed specifically to meet US emissions standards, will not be used in passenger cars from Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, or Alfa Romeo, but only in pickups and SUVs.
The “new” pickup could be a new midrange model, which has been rumored and can be seen in the Five Year Plan, or, one may speculate, the 2013 Ram, which is “new” in the sense of “a new release of an existing truck.” Rumors continue to swirl around testing of Ram 1500 diesel models, though a Cummins V6 engine has already been packaged for the big Ram.
