I have been faithful to chevy for the last 20 years but seeing how my chevy express has been giving me more than few issues now. I might just have to jump ship on what is better for my business. The 2014 Dodge Ram Promaster will be coming with this Chysler Penstar engine, I'm going to be smart and question the reliability before anything happens. What do you guys know about the Penstar engine? Is it reliable? Would you buy it and depend on it?

The Chysler Penstar engine has been around for a while now in different variations. The Penstar engine is actually one of the best engine offered in the U.S. market and won numerous amounts of awards. I wouldn't worry too much on the reliability. It's pretty bullet proof if you ask me and the amount of power your get from this v6 is incredible. Within the Dodge brand, the 3.6L Pentastar V6 is the standard base model engine in the Challenger, Charger and Durango while serving as the premium engine in the Avenger, Journey and Caravan. The Dodge Dart is the only current Dodge model not to come with the Pentastar V6.
