    Rumorpile: Updates Incoming For Pentastar V6s


    • Big Changes Are Coming For The Pentastar Family of Engines

    With stricter CAFE standards just around the corner, Chrysler is looking at giving their Pentastar V6 range some big changes.

    Automotive News has learned from sources about a new plan called Pentastar Upgrade - or PUG. PUG will feature such improvements as direct injection, turbocharging, and other technologies to bring more power and better fuel economy. Fiat's MultiAir variable valve timing technology will remain.

    Now the first of these updated engines could arrive in the 2015 Grand Cherokee in the guise of a 3.6L V6. This will be followed by a updated 3.2L V6 in the 2016 Town & Country minivan.

    Yet DI on Pushrod engines from GM seem to do the same thing compared to turbo. I wonder if this marketing push is really just that, no real benefit but increase in cost due to complexity.

    Still wished for a 3.5L v6 to replace the 3.9L, ..gm, but thats another thread

     

    will the power difference be substantial? i looked for the 2015 grand Cherokee, i didn't notice it being outside of ~5 hp?
