2018 Diesel Power Challenge – Competitor List

Posted on by

0

The readers have voted, the ballots have been counted and the Competitors of the 2018 Diesel Power Challenge have been announced! 3 Rams, 3 Fords, and 4 GM’s make up the 10 trucks of the 2018 Diesel Power Challenge. Following the Diesel Power Challenge rules, when a competitor wins twice in a row, the field is reset the following year. This takes 2-time champ Charlie Keeter and his Ford 6.0L Powerstroke out of the running, and puts the 4th GM in his place.

With some interesting trucks in the lineup this year, we just can’t wait for the action to start! For the Rams, we cover multiple years with a 1st Gen, 2nd Gen, and 3rd Gen. In the Ford camp, we have an E-Series Van, and a 1974 F-250 powered with a Cummins! Yes, Cummins powered! DPC rules state that the make of the truck determines the team, so while the ’74 Ford is powered by a Cummins, it will still be with the rest of the Fords. Finally, in the GM lineup we’ve got a range of 900-1000HP+ trucks all in the “classic” body style. Check out the list of competitors below, and watch the action unfold as we kick off Diesel Power Challenge on Monday, June 4th.
