The Duramax is a General Motors diesel engine family for light- and medium
duty trucks, designed by Isuzu. The 6.6-liter Duramax is produced by DMAX,
a joint venture between GM and Isuzu in Moraine, Ohio. This engine was
initially installed in 2001 model year Chevy and GMC trucks and has been an
option since then in pickups, vans, and medium-duty trucks. In 2006,
production at Moraine was reportedly limited to approximately 200,000
engines per year. On May 9, 2007, DMAX announced the production of the
1,000,000th Duramax V-8 diesel at its Moraine facility.
The Cummins B Series is a family of straight-four and straight-6 diesel
truck and industrial piston engines manufactured by Cummins. The B Series
is known for displacing "one liter per cylinder" because of the popular 3.9
litres (238.0 cu in) straight-four and 5.9 litres (360.0 cu in)
straight-six. A 3.3 litres (201.4 cu in) straight-four is also available.
The B Series is widely used in many segments, including pickup trucks (the
Dodge Ram), buses, military vehicles, construction equipment, and marine.
Some of the construction and marine applications have actually featured two
B series Cummins engines. The engine was originally designed by Cummins and
Case Corporation for commercial truck applications, and appeared in a
light-duty truck, the Dodge Ram, in 1989.
