With a starting MSRP of $37,185, the trucks will be powered by the Cummins 6.7L diesel, rated at 300 hp and 600 lb.-ft. of torque or the 6.4L HEMI that achieves 370 hp and 429 lb.-ft of torque, which is standard on the Class 4-5 models. A 6.7L Cummins diesel engine that achieves 325 hp and 750 lb.-ft. of torque will be standard on the Class 6-7 models. In addition, load leveling air suspensions will be standard on all models.
