Chrysler to introduce Fiat engines and drivetrains in 2010

We thought this was great news for Dodge… Come in and check out what other things we have going on here at Waldorf Dodge, including 2010 Ram trucks!

Chrysler Group LLC announced yesterday that it is revamping its powertrain lineup with some technology assistance from Fiat that will increase the overall fuel-efficiency of its lineup by 25 percent during the 2010-2014 period.

Chrysler will expand its 4-cylinder engine choices with the introduction of Fiat Powertrain’s 1.4L, in-line 4-cylinder Fully Integrated Robotized Engine (FIRE) featuring Multiair. 4-Cylinder options will include a 100-hp 1.4L I-4 FIRE with Multiair, a 170-hp 1.4L I-4 FIRE Turbo with Multiair and a 190-hp 2.4L I-4 World Gas Engine with Multiair.
The Auburn Hills automaker will also upgrade its V6 engine offering with the new fuel-efficient, 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine. Producing 280-hp and a peak torque of 260 lb-ft, the first application of the V6 Pentastar will debut in the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, due out in the second-quarter of 2010.
Further making improvements to fuel-efficiency, Chrysler said that it will introduce Fiat’s six-speed Dual Dry Clutch Transmission (DDCT) to mid-size D-segment cars later this year. The application will provide a 10 percent increase in fuel-economy.
