Since 2011 there have been 3 million Pentastar 3.6L V6 engines built within the Chrysler Group. Forty-eight percent of all Chrysler Group vehicles sold in Canada during the first 10 months of this year were equipped with Pentastar-family engines.
“The 3.6-litre Pentastar not only has provided our many customers with billions of miles of reliable service and driving enjoyment, it is testament to our powertrain engineering prowess,” said Bob Lee, Chrysler Group Vice President and Head of Engine, Powertrain and Electrified Propulsion Systems Engineering. “With minimal modification, this engine delivers world-class performance in multiple applications. While our customers benefit from its wide range of capabilities, Chrysler Group benefits from economies of scale.”
The port-injected Pentastar, one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines for three years running, is so well-designed it outperforms even those competitive engines that feature costlier direct-injection technology. Accounting for all its vehicle applications, it contributes to 22 best-in-class benchmarks such as Best-in-class fuel economy for a gasoline-powered full size truck- Ram 1500.
The Pentastar engine just isn’t another engine on the market, it is a game changer. It has changed the automotive industry and what consumers expect out of their vehicles now. Come into Sherwood Dodge and checkout our vehicles which are equipped with the award winning Pentastar engine.
