April 26th, 2019 by

From helping you find the right car to giving you maintenance advice, our team is always excited to share their vast wealth of automotive knowledge, and one of the topics we frequently get asked about is car engines.

Whether you want to pick up a 2019 Jeep Renegade or have your eyes set on something a little more robust, almost every vehicle is powered by either a four-cylinder, V6, or V8 engine. These engine types are separated based on the number of cylinders that power them, and contrary to popular belief, no type is superior to any other.

Four-cylinder engines are typically designed for drivers who prioritize fuel efficiency over horsepower and torque. On the other hand, some four-cylinder engines can be optimized to pump out a considerable amount of horsepower, which can be great for drivers who want a car that can do a little bit of everything.

Alternatively, V6 and V8 engines give drivers a lot more oomph than four-cylinder engines. V6 and V8 engines are ideal for trucks and SUVs and will satisfy drivers who want a car that delivers serious horsepower and towing capability.

Before you pick up a vehicle with a four-cylinder engine, V6, or V8 engine, you should first ask yourself what you want your car to do. For commuters who want to save some cash at the pump, a four-cylinder might be the best option. Alternatively, off-roaders and tow-champions might prefer the power of a V6 or V8 engine; it all depends on your preference.

If you visit our Chrysler, Jeep, RAM, and Dodge dealership, our team of auto professionals will help you find the car equipped with the engine that checks off all of your automotive boxes. No matter which you prefer, our team at Landers Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM is dedicated to helping you find a car that you’ll love to drive.
