All reliable, high performing vehicles have great power underneath the hood. An engine is one of the most important parts of a vehicle, so that’s why FCA US LLC was excited to be one of the honorees of this year’s Ward’s 10 Best Engines for 2015 by WardsAuto.com. Keep reading for more information about this award and the FCA US LLC engine that was recognized.
The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 was the engine that was named as one of the top 10 Best Engines by Wards. This is the second year the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine was recognized. As to why this engine was recognized, Wards specifically called out the engine’s 420 lb-ft of torque and when it’s combined with the eight speed transmission, how the engine can deliver a class-leading 28 miles per gallon on the highway. Another aspect that helps the engine achieve this excellent fuel mileage is the Injection Rate-Shaping system which lessens noise and lowers the throttle speed response, therefore reducing consumption and emissions. The 3.0-liter EcoDiesl V-6 engine can also accommodate up to eight fuel-injection events per cylinder cycle.
“Recognition doesn’t often follow powertrain engineering the way it does other auto-industry disciplines, so we at Chrysler Group join our industry counterparts in thanking the organizers and sponsors of Ward’s 10 Best Engines for shining a spotlight on our work,” said Bob Lee, who is also Head of Powertrain Coordination (Group Executive Council) FCA N.V.
