AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Dec. 7, 2010 — (PRNewswire) —

  • Newest Chrysler engine recognized by the Editors of Ward's Automotive as one of the "Ten Best" for 2010
  • Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 cited for exceptional fuel economy, emissions and power
  • New engine destined to be workhorse in many Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge cars and Ram trucks

Chrysler LLC Powertrain's newest engine, the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6, has been recognized by Ward's Automotive as one of the 'Ten Best" engines for 2010.

Introduced in the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the new engine will soon be available in 10 vehicles across the 2011 Chrysler line-up including Chrysler 200, 300 and Town & Country minivans; Dodge Avenger, Challenger, Charger, Durango and Journey, and Dodge Town & Country . By 2014 the new Pentastar V-6 is expected to account for more than one third of the powertrains in the Chrysler line-up and will substantially contribute to achieving an overall corporate fuel efficiency improvement of 25 percent.

"We designed the new Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 to meet a variety of requirements in terms of fuel efficiency and power for passenger cars, minivans and sport utilities," said Bob Lee, vice president of engine engineering and advanced propulsion systems for Chrysler. "Already we are looking forward to adapting future technologies to the Pentastar V-6 as they become available for even more fuel efficiency and performance."

"Every year, Ward's Automotive recognizes the industry leaders in engine technology," said Drew Winter, editor at Ward's Automotive. "The new Pentastar delivers on all fronts including fuel economy, lower emissions and power."

Slated to be Chrysler's new workhorse V-6, the new 3.6-liter Pentastar will replace seven current V-6 engines ranging in displacements from 2.7 – 4.0-liters by 2013.
