Cummins, Duramax, Power Stroke… Which one is the most badass engine?

Cummins, Duramax, Power Stroke… Which one is the most badass engine?

Every driver knows what a difference a good engine can make to a truck - it’s the heart and soul of any vehicle and what really gets you from point A to B. In the US, we’ve been blessed by a myriad of exceptional options to choose from, making it easy to find the perfect beast for our hoods, that suits the way we like to drive across the country. Right now, let’s travel back to 2019 for a second and check out three of the diesel engines that had just come out back then, and that got the whole truck community excited over how badass they are.

 

Cummins Engine

Ram proudly showed off the Cummins B-Series 6.7L I-6 in its 2019 heavy-duty truck, with a torque of 1,000 lb-ft and 400 hp. Also offering a single variable-geometry turbocharger, six-speed automatic transmission, and 16.2:1 compression ratio. In that year, the only other engine to achieve that torque plateau was the HO powerplant. Ram also had much more to brag about, with its Ram 3500 rising to the top for its impressive towing capacity of 35,100-pound. It’s easy to say that Ram had a good year back then and that drivers still enjoy their trucks for this reason.

 

Duramax Engine

 

What made the Chevrolet and GMC of 2020 stand out with their 6.6L Duramax L5P V-8 engine wasn’t specifically the horsepower or torque (which stand at 445hp and 910 lb-ft respectively) but the brand new Allison ten-speed automatic transmission which instantly boosted those vehicles’ efficiency and performance. 

 

Duramax might be lacking in torque compared to the other two engines but nevertheless makes it to the top for the extra towing capability of 35,500-pounds maximum, given by its combo of this engine with a 10L1000 gearbox. Essentially, a great option for drivers who are more interested in impressive towing capability over engine output (even if ever so slightly). Compared to Ram, GMC can boast an improved drivetrain by 400 pounds of difference.

 

Power Stroke Engine

 

It might have been the latest to be released but Ford was clearly spending its time in the right way when they built this engine. Unleashing a third-generation 6.7L Power Stroke engine in their 2020 Super Duty, which immediately impressed for its 450 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. To really keep up with the competition, they made sure to match the ten-speed automatic transmission of the Duramax engine and then took a shot at beating the previous towing capability with a stunning 37,000 pounds maximum limit.

 

Overall, you can tell that this is a modern engine made for a modern truck, showing off the latest hardware with a compacted-graphite-iron block and stronger rotating assembly, bearings, aluminum cylinder heads, redesigned intake manifold, electronically actuated turbocharger, and updated fueling.

 

Whichever engine sounds the best to you, it’s always important that as you blast off into the distance with your optimal horsepower and torque, you and your truck are protected from all dangers of the road.  Check out our Ultimate Bumper Guide to find out which bumper would give you the best additional protection, and feel free to get in touch either via live chat or by calling us on 281-404-2124 if you have any questions.

Awesome Quality in Workmanship/Delivery

I work in Nuclear Quality Control and have an eye for spotting sub standard practices in manufacturing to include poor welds. I was impressed with how the bumper was shipped in its protective shipping container, not a scratch. I expected it to be just contained in flimsy cardboard. I looked it over prior to accepting delivery and then looked it over in more detail later on. The welds are all spot on, the connecting seams of the numerous components of the bumper were flawless. Thanks for an outstanding bumper. You guys must have a Quality Assurance Department.

It’s so Cool. Huge Improvement.

I couldn't wait to get this bumper on so I did it myself after I saw the bolts can be attached from the back while balancing the bumper on my trailer hitch. Not sure it that was by design or not- but it worked great, was stable and didn’t scratch my paint.
