March 16th, 2018 by

Not every engine is versatile enough to end up in multiple vehicles, ranging from sedans to vans and trucks, but that’s what makes Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine different from the rest. A trusted, resourceful engine that has won awards and accolades, we will explain exactly what makes the 3.6L engine so well received.

A History of the Chrysler 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 Engine

When this engine was first introduced in 2011, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 24-valve dual overhead engine was noted for having VVT (variable valve timing) a new technology that adjusts the timing of the intake/exhaust valves to improve the engine’s efficiency, as such, this implemented technology has remained a mainstay across many vehicles.

All Pentastar engines have an open deck design, with four oil return holes below the head bolt holes. There are only two head designs, two intake manifolds and one set of internal components. The increase in horsepower is due to a more aggressively designed intake air system which increases air flow.
