What is the Best Engine Type for You?

December 6th, 2018 by

Customer satisfaction is our number one priority at Landers Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM in Bossier City, LA. Our sales team will do their best to understand your unique automotive needs to find you the car that you’ll love. One of the many factors we pay attention to is the engine type.

While there are a wide variety of engine types out there, typically drivers choose from three options: a four-cylinder, V6, or V8 engine. There is a misconception amongst new drivers that a V6- or V8-powered car is always going to be better. If you determine the better car based on horsepower and torque, then this idea of “more cylinders=better” holds true. However, not everyone is looking for the torque and power of something like a 2018 RAM 1500, with its impressive V6 and V8 options. Four-cylinder cars may offer less power, but they also use less fuel. This makes four-cylinder vehicles more fuel efficient. However, just because these cars opt for fewer cylinders doesn’t mean they’re necessarily weak regarding horsepower and torque. Cars like the Jeep Renegade utilize their four-cylinders more effectively giving drivers a considerable amount of power behind the wheel. All that said, at the end of the day, the better engine type all depends on what kind of driving that you want to do. Commuters may find more satisfaction from four-cylinder engines, while off-road enthusiasts will make more use out of a V6 or V8 engine.

No matter what kind of vehicle you’re looking for, our showroom at Landers Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM will certainly satisfy. Our sales team will get a full gauge of the kind of car you’re looking for, and help you get behind the wheel of a vehicle that you’ll love.
