Impressive.

But GM has their 2.8 (in the Colorado outside the US) at 197 hp and 500 Nm already. Only six speeds, however.

But it has a 16-valve DOHC head, not so restricted as the 8-valve pushrod used in the Cummins. Anyway, if Cummins managed to get 4 valves per cylinder in the ISB-series while still retaining the pushrod layout, why not to apply it into the ISF series? I still consider it better for commercial purposes, as many commercial operators still do...

Lovely truck. Capable of up to 45 mpg (US) at a steady 50 mph and around 40 at 60 mph. Lots of low end punch with the 2.2, but in terms of highway legs, it's almost identical to the 3.2 diesel. The Ranger is relatively aerodynamic, but it's still a brick.
