Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner - Powered by Cummins

Cummins and Nissan unveiled a technical study called the Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner – Powered by Cummins™ at the Chicago Auto Show. The heart of this vehicle is a concept 2.8L turbo diesel engine – developed at the Cummins Technical Center in Columbus, Ind. – that produces approximately 200 hp and over 350 lb-ft of torque. This concept 2.8L has been matched with a Nissan Frontier Desert Runner 4x2 in a project to evaluate the viability of this package for North America.  

Cummins has been powering pickup trucks around the world for over 25 years, with engines including the B3.9, 5.9 and 6.7-liter Turbo Diesels. The 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel for the next-generation Nissan Titan and the ISF2.8, used in markets outside the United States, are the latest production engines to power the pickup truck market.  

The custom Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner – Powered by Cummins on display is one of two trucks specially repowered by Cummins to demonstrate the latest in diesel capabilities. Nissan is looking for feedback on this concept engine and truck - you can submit your thoughts on the project by February 24.
