Take a Look at the Impressive Pentastar Engine

November 22nd, 2013 by

When buying a new car, you sometimes don’t think about the name of the engine under the hood. If you’ve driven a new Chrysler Group vehicle in the last three years, however, you may have noticed that it gives you a little extra bang. That’s because 17 of the automaker’s models house a variation of the Pentastar engine, one of the most versatile underpinnings on the market.

As a matter of fact, this compatibility has seen the engine reach a production milestone three years into its lifespan. Already, 3 million Pentastar engines have been produced.

We won’t bore you too much with the technical specifics of what’s gotten this engine to the top so quickly, since you’re probably wondering what makes it so special.

The Pentastar engine line was designed with three things in mind: performance, versatility, and fuel-economy. Combined, it gives cars in different segments best-in-class nods, such as the RAM 1500‘s best-in-class 305 horsepower, and best-in-class 31 mpg highway fuel economy for the Dodge Charger and the Chrysler 300.

These nods, along with many others, has helped propel the Pentastar to the top of Ward’s 10 Best Engines three years in a row. How can you go wrong?

If you’re interested in driving a car with a Pentastar underpinning, drop by Ron Sayer's Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Idaho Falls, ID. Be sure to ask us about which vehicles we carry is equipped with it, and if one of them catches your eye, we can let you take it for a spin.
