TurboFlite Hemi V8 on Chrysler Dodger Charger for improved efficiency
|   Thursday, June 26, 2014
V6 and V8 engines have been the craze for too long, and their combination with a six speed automatic or even a seven speed automatic is too mainstream now. Along with that, there is a problem of fuel efficiency. And then, there is a question of increasing standards for oneself. That is why new variations of power train are being introduced by Chrysler.

Now there is going to be a combination of a Hemi V8 TorqueFlite engine with a eight speed transmission that is going to be offered as standard option in upcoming 2015 Chrysler Dodger Charger and Challenger.
There is going to be subsequent changes in other models as well.

TorqueFlite is a unique technology but this is not first time it is being used in a car by Chrysler. Earlier in 2012 it was used in Dodger Charger and also Chrysler 300. These cars came with a Pentastar V6 engine of capacity 3.6 litres.

This was first time TorqueFlite was used, and from then onwards it has been used in many different models. It has been used with a V6, V8 as well as their EcoDiesel Engines. Many Different Chrysler line up cars have adorned this technology in the past.

There is going to be other updates as well on these upcoming models as well, but this power change has taken all the limelight. There is going to be an increase in horsepower as well. This combination of Hemi V8 TorqueFlite with an eight speed automatic transmission is well equipped to produce more than 600 horse power.

There is also a concept of saving fuel. This combination is less fuel consuming than all other prevailing engine transmission combinations. As per authorities of the company, over their lifetime on roads, each of these cars is capable of saving as much as 2.5 billion USD on fuel costs. That is a huge savings.

Due to all these advantages, it is going to be made a standard option on many of Chrysler's upcoming models. A change from V6 Pentastar or V8 might be seen on some existing models as well.

There are other gearbox options as well. Chrysler has decided to not provide with a manual option as of now. But there are nine speed transmissions and ten speed gearboxes that are being worked with right now, and may come into common use in near future. Big names like General Motors and Ford are working on this.

An increase in number of gears is being made to provide better fuel economy and also less of emissions. However, that is not the only point to which it is restricted to. It is being included in some cars in compliance with some very specific customer requests as well to increase ease of driving.

In general automatic transmissions are more efficient that manual ones, and in that case the number of gears becomes secondary. However, with a race in number of gears, there is a question as to what number will be deemed as the limit.
