Eco-Friendly, Efficient and Alternative Fuel Vehicles

FCA is committed to eco-friendly vehicle innovations, the greening of manufacturing operations, supporting the development of alternative fuels and ever improving efficiency.

Our products are engineered and designed with processes that minimize the impact on the environment. In addition to our efforts to our greening of the manufacturing and design process, we continuously strive to pursue new technologies to better efficiency all across the board.

When it comes to reducing emissions and dependence on fossil fuels, FCA’s Flex Fuel engines play an important role as they’re capable of operating efficiently on 87-octane unleaded gasoline or ethanol (E85) fuel – or any combination of the 2 – reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions.

Most of our mid-size and larger Fleet vehicles feature the Flex Fuel 3.6L PentastarTM VVT V6.

Canada’s Best-Selling Engine,44 the PentastarTM VVT V6 offers an elegantly simple design with outstanding drivability and responsiveness with impressive fuel economy — without the need for premium fuel.

We understand that sometimes, a V8 with massive pulling power is required. With our Best-Selling45 and iconic 5.7L HEMI® V8, power and efficiency are no longer mutually exclusive. In keeping with our mission for cleaner air, the FuelSaver Multi-Displacement System (MDS) technology deactivates 4 cylinders while cruising and idling – instantly reverting back to 8 cylinders when more power needed – this results in more efficiency while retaining maximum towing and hauling capability.

Our commitment to improving efficiency goes even further with the launch of the new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica – the most technologically advanced minivan and first ever hybrid-electric vehicle in its class.27†
