WardsAuto.com has named two Chrysler Group engines among its prestigious 10 Best Engines for 2014: the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 and the Fiat 500e battery-electric drive system. This marked the fourth consecutive year in a row that at least one Chrysler engine is represented among Ward’s 10 Best Engines.
While the 500e stood out for being the only electric system on the list, the EcoDiesel stood out for… well, everything. It’s the first and only clean diesel available in full-size light-duty pickup trucks, providing best-in-class highway fuel economy in both the award-winning 2014 Ram 1500 pickup as well as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
But its efficiency doesn’t cut back on the power. At 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 is one of the most powerful engines available in its segment. It also benefits from Fiat’s innovative MultiJet 2 technology, which enables a special fuel injection that helps reduce noise, improve low-speed throttle response, and reduce fuel consumption as well as harmful emissions.
Come find the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ram 1500 at Cronic Chrysler.
