3.6L Pentastar® VVT Engine – Horse Power – Torque – Miles Per Gallon
The selection of an automobile either new or used requires research and finally decision making. Naturally the first things we look for are features that are pleasing to the eye. Such as the color and trim, upholstery color and trim along with features for driving and riding comfort and finally the price of the vehicle. All of these are important. We must be pleased not only with the vehicle we select, but with ourselves that we have made the proper decision. In most cases we have made a purchase for the future. Normally this purchase must be reliable and perform with as little maintenance as possible.
Do you consider the engine you are purchasing along with the transmission? These are just as important as the exterior and interior of the vehicle. It may be a car or truck you are considering or have purchased. Are you or did you consider the horsepower and torque of the engine along with the miles per gallon of fuel it will get in the city or traveling on the highway? I hope so, these are very important.
The fine vehicles that are designed, engineered, and manufactured by Chrysler Group LLC and sold by Hoyte Dodge, RAM, Chrysler, Jeep dealership in Sherman, Texas is proud to offer the finest engine made for any vehicle on the market today. I am referring to the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 VVT. This highly rated engine has been voted one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines for 2013. The block is die-cast from aluminum for added strength and cooling efficiency. It will also accept either E85 or 7 octane fuels. Another great feature is called cylinder deactivation which shuts down some of the cylinders when they are not needed to improve fuel consumption.
The 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine is available in most cars and trucks built by the Chrysler Group LLC including the RAM 1500 Truck and RAM Cargo Van. With 305 HP and 269 ft-lb of torque this is outstanding in a light duty truck while producing a Best-IN-Class 25 MPG highway and 18 MPG (EPA est) city. The RAM 1500 is also the only light-duty truck in the US with an 8-speed Torqueflite® transmission that provides greater acceleration in the lower gears for improved efficiency and uses less gas. Hauling and towing larger loads can now performed with the additional strength and efficiency needed to get the job done.
All 3.6L Pentastar® VVT engines including those in Dodge and Chrysler vehicles include a feature that uses a computer to maximize power and efficiency by controlling the intake and exhaust systems. VVT (Variable Valve Timing) is the key to this operation. It alternates the timing of the valve lift which results in improved fuel economy and less emissions which result in overall improved performance. In the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, and Wrangle Unlimited models it provides an outstanding 285 HP with 260 lb-ft of torque that has made the go anywhere Jeep the adventures off-road vehicle of choice.
