Test drove a few when it was 37F outside, truck was sitting for a while, and had noticeable heat within 4 minutes. Coolant was still under 80F. I was pretty much sold at that point.

So I am a bit out of touch on the issue of the motor in the 2019's. Is it the new carbon engine case with the new pistons, injector pump etc.?

Could never figure that out from the advertisements. Thought it would only be with the ZF 8 speed and see the 2019's still have the 69RE. Clear it up for me - is it the "NEW" motor?

Compact Graphite Iron block, new pistons, rings, hydraulic lifters, different cams and timing gears, new CP4.2 pump and some others. Also the HO 1000 Ft lbs torque engine has a lower compression ratio (16.x:1? I think?) vs the regular output motor in the 2500's and some 3500's which has 19:1 or so. HO motor also goes with the Aisin. All are 6 speed. The gas Hemi motors get 8 speeds.
Neat RAM video here.

Thanks. Read around and figured it out a bit. Guessing the 2020's will be the ones with the ZF transmission. I currently have an EcoDiesel with over 100,000 miles and that ZF. SOB has no way to reasonable check the transmission oil level. Will say this, overheated many times because of a faulty Thermal valve, it is still shifting strong with only one fluid change.

May go back to another Cummins so trying to figure things out.

I'm thinking it's going to be a few years before the 8 speed arrives. They just upgraded both 6 speeds and I can't believe they'd do that for one year of production

I would think ZF tranny is coming soon to the diesel HD line, if for no other reason just to counter the ferd and cheby 10 speeds coming out.

I would bet we don’t see the new trans until we get the fully refreshed 5th gen, likely 2022.

Ya I would agree. I don’t see any significant changes until 2022.

Picked mine up from a dealers lot 3 weeks ago. Mileage seems to be between 17-20 mpg, mostly highway miles. Close to 6k miles now.
