Oh, God. I bought a Dodge with 281,000 miles on it.

This is it. This is how I know I've lost my goddamned mind. I willingly handed over American currency for this: a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 with 281,000 miles on the odometer. Why? Because a new truck costs more than my mortgage. Because I've seen more half-tons with their transmissions puked out over a garage floor than I… » 3/13/15 1:38pm 3/13/15 1:38pm

Do You Have Any Idea How Significant A Cummins Diesel Nissan Titan Is?

I can't overemphasize how exciting it is to witness the birth of a new half-ton truck challenger to entrenched powerhouses Ford, Chevy, and Ram. Just (five years after) the Nissan Titan melts into "oh, you're still here?" status, they come back swinging for the fences. » 12/29/14 5:10pm 12/29/14 5:10pm

Nissan Renewing Promise Of 5.0 Cummins Turbodiesel Titan 'Coming Soon'

We've been hearing the 2015 Nissan Titan was stepping up its game with a 5.0 turbocharged Cummins diesel, an engine that might also show up in the 2016 Toyota Tundra. We were almost ready to forget that 'til today, when Nissan started titillating us all over again with "#CumminsSoon" on Twitter. » 10/13/14 1:20pm 10/13/14 1:20pm

Nissan Is Definitely Planning A Cummins Diesel Frontier

The tarp won't come off this "technical study" Frontier for another ninety minutes, but there's no mistaking the Cummins diesel badge on the front fenders. Cummins reps milling around the stage eliminate any traces of doubt that Nissan is serious about being a serious player in the truck efficiency arms race. » 2/06/14 10:09am 2/06/14 10:09am

Let's Find This Stolen Truck Because I Know We Can

As you can imagine, when people come to me now with requests to help find stolen cars, I feel I have a duty to do what little I can, because of how incredibly the Jalopnik community came through for me. So now we have a new target, a 1997 Cummins Diesel truck that was very important to the owner, Max. Let's find it. » 4/22/13 2:35pm 4/22/13 2:35pm

Huge Diesel Powered Hot Rod Is Ready For The Apocalypse

If a bulldozer and a chopped up pickup truck had a bastard child, we are pretty positive it would look like this oversized hot rod currently listed on Ebay. Although this massive truck of unknown origin looks like it could fit right in on a construction site or in a post apocalyptic wasteland, one place this beast… » 4/22/12 11:00am 4/22/12 11:00am

Rare Vintage Power Wagon Has Modern Diesel Power

Call us a little strange (it wouldn't be the first time), but we think it is pretty hard to make a 1959 Dodge W100 Power Wagon any cooler than they were when they left the factory. The combination of the Power Wagon's Forward Look styling and rugged functionality make them a nearly perfect old truck in our eyes—even… » 2/25/12 2:00pm 2/25/12 2:00pm

Cummins powered 1960 Cadillac belches black smoke with style

Considering vintage Cadillacs are rarely the first choice for a hot rod platform, it's hard to believe this is the second old Caddy sedan we've seen with a Cummins diesel where it's factory V8 once was. While the other diesel Cadillac sedan we saw was a SEMA show car, this 1960 Cadillac currently listed on Ebay is… » 10/15/11 2:00pm 10/15/11 2:00pm

Custom diesel-powered Willys Wagon is a vintage SUV with a modern price…

What would you do if you came upon a well used and slightly rusted vintage SUV? While some might just get it running and drive it, the owner of this vintage Willys Wagon decided two doors and an inline six just wouldn't do. The lifted and stretched four door Willys seen here is the unique result. Featuring a modern… » 5/21/11 11:00am 5/21/11 11:00am
