Just off the fact the dodge is the only one with a manual tansmission in the HD trucks I think the last thing they would do is dump the Cummins. It would definitly be more stupid then them making megacabs duallies. They might start using more Mercedes parts but they wont ditch the Cummins in their HD trucks. The fuel mileage with any diesel motor sucks anymore, its not the Cummins its the federal emissions requierments, a different motor isnt going to solve the MPG problem in a 8k lb truck.
I could maybe see a Mercedes or different brand 8 cylinder diesel in a 1500 though. Really unlikely but if it would happen it would be my best guess.
Take everything you hear with a grain of salt, people still think Ford owns Cummins...
