Popular Pentastar Engine Reaches New Production Milestone

Chrysler has become well known for its powerful 3.6-liter Pentastar engine. In fact, many happy customers have left our Greenville area Chrysler Dealership in a new or used car featuring this engine. It has also obtained many awards over the years including the honor of being on the Ward's 10 Best Engines list for the last three years in a row.

The 3.6-liter Chrysler Pentastar engine is currently available in 17 Chrysler Group vehicles, which has helped it obtain a very impressive milestone. Aside from appeasing consumers and critics alike, the powerplant has recently reached a production high of three million units produced.

Adding to the credibility of this accomplishment is the fact that the engine was introduced in the 2011 model year. If you crunch the numbers, that means that the two Chrysler plants responsible for making the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 (Trenton, NJ. And Saltillo, Mexico) have turned out approximately one million units each year, which also amounts to an average of one engine every two minutes!

Within this time, the popularity of the Pentastar V6 has helped it expand into other options including a 3.2-liter variant featured in the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee and a 3.0-liter version found in the same model, but available in China only.
