The 6.2L HEMI® Hellcat V8 engine is just one of the two being honoured on the list of Ward’s 10 Best Engines for 2015. The other engine is the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, which can be seen in the 2015 Ram 1500. While they are two very distinct and different engines, they both represent Chrysler’s focus on efficiency and performance.
According to Drew Winter, editor-in-chief of Ward’s Auto World as well as senior editor at WardsAuto.com, the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine in quiet and smooth while providing an impressive 420 lb-ft of torque. It is also a class leader in fuel efficiency. This engine is seen in the 2015 Ram 1500 and the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which happens to be the most-awarded SUV.
What impressed the judges about the 6.2L HEMI® was how well it worked in everyday driving, as well as its power for the racetrack. The fact that this engineering phenomenon was put in a car which costs less than $60,000 was considered an accomplishment all by itself.
Chrysler vehicles have been recognized for five years in a row in Ward’s 10 Best Engines. This also marks the second year in a row that the company has received multiple honors.
