VMAC has released its Underhood 70 Air Compressor for 2019 Ram trucks with Cummins diesel engine. This rotary screw air compressor is designed specifically to be installed in the engine compartment of the Ram truck. The Underhood 70 Air Compressor can produce up to 70 CFM of continuous air flow at 100 psi (max 175 psi).

The Underhood 70 air compressor is favored in the industry for being lightweight and compact. It frees up to 25 cubic feet on the truck deck, and saves up to 260 pounds, compared to a gas drive reciprocating air compressor with 30-gallon air receiver tank. These space and weight savings allow customers to carry more tools and equipment or take advantage of better fuel economy.

Underhood air compressors also perform well in extreme climates, including arctic and desert environments. With the air compressor installed in the engine compartment of the truck, it is protected from the elements, ensuring it starts in freezing temperatures every time.

The Underhood 70 is designed for Ram 6.7L Cummins Inline 6 Diesel trucks. The application for 6.4L HEMI V-8 Gas is slated to be released in Fall 2019. For exact fitment specifications, visit VMAC’s interactive application list: www.vmacair.com/application-lists.
