CHRYSLER PLANNING NEW ENGINES OFF PENTASTAR ARCHITECTURE

CHRYSLER PLANNING NEW ENGINES OFF PENTASTAR ARCHITECTURE

By Drew Johnson

Chrysler’s all-new Pentastar V6 will find its way under the hood of 13 Chrysler vehicles by 2012, but that figure will continue to grow in the subsequent years as Chrysler launches new variations of the same basic engine architecture.

Chrysler’ new Pentastar V6 is currently only available in one size – 3.6L – but that will change in the coming years. “The engine architecture is designed to be competitive from 3.0 liters to 4.0 liters,” said Bob Lee, vice president of engine engineering for Chrysler. “For today's vehicles, a 3.6-liter is the right size now.”

Lee failed to give a timeframe for when we might see a different version of the Pentastar engine, but said Chrysler could tailor the engine to meet the specific needs of a vehicle. “We can build a 3.0-liter engine, a 3.1, a 3.3” off the Pentastar architecture, Lee said.

In its current form, the 3.6L V6 offers between 290-305 horsepower, while delivering up to 15 percent better fuel economy than Chrysler’s outgoing V6 engines.
