The aluminum block Pentastar 3.6L VVT V-6 delivers 285 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque at 4,800 rpm. It’s a great improvement over the old 3.8L V-6 and, yes, the 4.0L straight-six. In our testing, we saw between 15 and 22 mpg. Popping off the engine cover reveals an easily-accessed paper element oil filter up top for easy oil changes.
