Chrysler Group LLC has recently produced its 1,000,000th Pentastar V6 engine. On Friday January 27th, Chrysler completed this milestone engine at its Trenton, Michigan assembly plant.
“To build one million of anything, and in an impressively short amount of time, is a significant achievement,” said Brian Harlow, Chrysler vice president and head of Powertrain Manufacturing. “But to do it with such a high degree of quality is a testament to our skilled and dedicated workforce at both Trenton South and Saltillo engine plants.”
The automaker’s 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee was the original recipient of this all-aluminum engine, but now it is offered in almost a dozen different models, including the Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, and Jeep Wrangler. The 2012 3.6-liter V6 provides 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. of torque.
