Fast Facts:
  • Referred to as the “Square body”, this generation Ram gave birth to the first generation turbodiesel Cummins engine. When released in 1989, it was the most powerful diesel-powered truck on the market. As the only diesel equipped with a turbo, its 400 ft-lb torque easily trumped GM’s 6.2L LF9 (246 ft-lbs) and Ford’s 7.3L IDI (345 ft-lbs torque). This is despite the Cummins small 5.9L displacement and two fewer cylinders
  • Max trailer weight of the 250 4×4 (shown here) is 10,400 lbs. Gross cargo capacity is 16,000 lbs
  • The Cummins (known as the 6BT) was quite different from the diesel powerplants offered by Ford an GM. The Cummins was a turbocharged inline six, while the other two were N/A V8’s. And unlike the other two, the Cummins features direct injection, which it means it doesn’t rely on glowplugs (devices that heat up during cranking to assist in cold starting a diesel engine)
  • Released in 1984, the Cummins 6BT 12 valve engine was originally intended for industrial vehicles like tractors and cranes. It featured a heavy-duty iron block with a 4.02″ bore and a massive 4.72″ stroke to boost low-end torque. Other features include a steel crankshaft, forged steel connecting rods, 17:1 compression ratio, an aluminum intake manifold, and direct injection. Total weight with the turbocharger is 1,100 lbs (dry)
  • The inline cylinder layout has some key advantages over the V8 competition. By design, an inline is less complex than a “V” engine of the same cylinder count (ie, one exhaust manifold instead of two, etc). Add to the fact that it features two fewer cylinders, and the Cummins engine contains about 40% fewer parts than its V8 competitors. Fewer working parts means lower maintenance costs. Durability was by far the defining trait of a 12-valve Cummins: a full engine rebuild typically isn’t needed until 300,000 miles
  • Bottom line, if you were shopping for a diesel-powered truck in the early 90s, a Cummins powered Ram was the one to have!
Key Model Year Changes:
  • Cosmetic changes: redesigned grille with thicker bars, larger “Dodge” lettering on the hood, Ram “horn” hood piece is deleted. New rear step bumper
  • Mechanical changes:
  • The vacuum pump is now a vane type (vs the old dual diaphragm type)
  • There are now two 750 amp batteries instead of one 1,025 amp battery
  • A completely new engine controller (SBEC II) controls the intake manifold heater, wait-to-start timer, water-in-fuel sensing system, cruise control, and overdrive engagement
  • Halfway through 1991, Cummins models received an air-to-air intercooler to reduce NOx emissions (power ratings remained unchanged)
  • Also halfway through 1991: an updated 4spd automatic overdrive (A518) was installed on Cummins models
  • In late 1991 production, all Ram 250 Cummins models were upgraded to the 350 one-ton frames. This means all 250 and 350 turbodiesels manufactured after this point share the same frame
  • The following years (1992 and 1993) see changes to the gas engines only
  • 1993 is the final year of the “Square body” generation
