New Pentastar Engine
For 2011, a new
powertrain delivers best-in-class horsepower without sacrificing fuel
efficiency. The new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine produces 283 horsepower, or
86 more horsepower than the outgoing 3.8-liter V-6 engine, and 260 lb-ft of
torque. The Pentastar V-6 is mated to the 62TE six-speed automatic transmission.
Even with the added horsepower, the 2011 Chrysler Town & Country is expected to
maintain an excellent EPA Fuel economy rating. A new fuel economizer mode helps
the driver maximize fuel efficiency and new premium, lower-rolling resistance
tires and reductions in brake caliper and rear bearing drag make great fuel
economy possible. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine simplifies vehicle
complexity by replacing three V-6 engines that were available in the outgoing
model lineup, the 3.3-liter V-6, the 3.8-liter V-6 and the 4.0-liter V-6.
