It'll just make a Ram diesel truck cost $10k more. Was Cummins really "cheating", or were they not playing the game by dumping billions into electric and hybrid powertrains.

I read awhile back that Stellantis is already working on a Cummins replacement. Peugeot is a designer and manufacturer of diesel engines. They have a lot of experience and were in a joint development program with Ford that developed compacted graphite iron engine blocks.

Not to worry, the government will spend those fines wisely.

funny you say that...I doubt most people know where the money from fines like this actually goes. It is in fact the "general fund" that Congress mostly uses for all their pet pork projects. That's as far as I'm going to go on this subject. It's a damn travesty that the Government is telling people that Cummins knowingly sold "defeat devices" when that is also a lie. Unfortunately Cummins will never be able to tell their side of the story fairly. They worked with the investigators and then got stabbed in the back for doing so with this fine. Bet they never do that again.
