FCA Pentastar V6 production tops 5 million
Chrysler has announced that production of its award-winning Pentastar V6 has now surpassed 5 million units. Currently available in 14 different Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram vehicles and in 3.0-, 3.2- and 3.6-liter displacements, some form of this ubiquitous motivator was fitted to 47 percent of all FCA vehicles sold this year.
"The success of the Pentastar V6 engine family continues to be a testament to our powertrain engineering prowess," said Bob Lee, Vice President - Engine, Powertrain and Electrified Propulsion, and Systems Engineering, FCA - North America. He notes that in addition to delivering world-class performance and fuel-efficiency in everything from the midsize Chrysler 200 sedan to the full-size Ram ProMaster commercial van, the engine's design allows it to be easily adapted to longitudinal/ transverse orientations and front-wheel/rear-wheel/all-wheel/four-wheel-drive systems as well as being backed by a 6-speed manual transmission and 6-/8-/9-speed automatics.
