RAM IS THE ONLY HEAVY DUTY DIESEL PICKUP IN THE MARKET THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID (DEF) TO OPERATE, PROVIDING BOTH TIME AND COST SAVINGS TO CONSUMERS.
Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF): sometimes called urea, it is primarily used by our competitors in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems to assist in reducing harmful emissions. DEF is a solution of water and automotive grade urea that helps convert nitrogen oxide emissions in diesel exhaust into nitrogen gas and water vapour.
FACT: The 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine is the CLEANEST Cummins Turbo Diesel ever
FACT: Ram is the only diesel-powered heavy duty pickup that meets stringent Canadian emissions standards without the hassles associated with the Diesel Exhaust Fluid systems found on Ford and Chevy heavy duty pickups. In fact, Ram Heavy Duty Pickups with the 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine have been compliant with Canadian emission standards since 2007, years ahead of the competition. With nearly a quarter of a million Ram Heavy Duty Pickup Trucks on North American roads, and years of proven service, Ram Heavy Duty offers an emissions treatment solution that buyers can depend on.
FACT: Low Cost Of Ownership and Hassle-Free Maintenance with NO DEF. Ram with Cummins is hassle-free, convenient and saves consumers time and money. Since Ford and Chevy require Diesel Exhaust Fluid to reduce emissions, their drivers must continually monitor their DEF system or risk performance degradation that could result in critical power loss and potentially cripple the truck with a no-start condition. In addition, DEF is not always readily available where diesel pickup owners fuel up or buy auto parts, which could result in unexpected down time.
FACT: Ram with Cummins is a proven, highly integrated engine and emissions solution. Ram Heavy Duty Pickups come equipped with a system that automatically regulates diesel emissions according to federal standards. The engine utilizes several components to help reduce harmful airborne pollutants including:
•An integrated Exhaust Gas Recirculation system (EGR) that recirculates exhaust gases, reducing the formation of oxides of nitrogen (NOx).
•A Closed Coupled Catalyst that is mounted at the turbocharger outlet to warm up quickly and help the exhaust after-treatment system function more efficiently.
•A NOx Adsorber Catalyst (NAC) converts oxides of nitrogen into harmless inert gases for release into the atmosphere. The NOx Adsorber Catalyst performs the same task as the DEF system seen in other trucks but there is no DEF tank to fill.
•A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) filters the particulates, or soot, out of the exhaust gas. The collected soot is oxidized automatically, regenerating the DPF so it can keep doing its job of cleaning the exhaust gas.
