This HEMI engine delivers plenty of power and torque, along with awesome efficiency and an outstanding driving experience. Everything from the exhaust system, to the number of spark plugs has been engineered to create perfection.

What makes the 6.4 – litre HEMI V8 so versatile is its broad torque curve which provides power where it is needed most. You will get 1,200 rpm to up to 4,200 rpm, including an additional 70 lb-ft of torque. This engine is the highest specific-power, naturally aspirated, two-valve engine offered on the market today.

The block is constructed with high strength iron which starts with a 90 degree, deep-skirted design. Cast aluminum pistons with full floating piston pins are used. Pistons include two compression rings and an oil control ring that are designed to provide reduced friction.

The oiling system is top grade with a cast aluminum oil pan which is designed to provide superior oil management and additional structural rigidity. The integral gasket and windage tray design are fitted between the pan and engine block to reduce the amount of oil that comes in contact with the crankshaft. A single gerotor oil pump provides pressure for the oiling system and is driven directly off the crankshaft nose with a one-to-one drive ratio.

What really makes the 6.4-litre HEMI stand out is its perfect combination of fuel economy and high performance. This is thanks to the standard Fuel Saver Technology that is featured in the Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300 SRT8 models. This system shuts down fuel delivery to four cylinders when you don’t need full power.

Chrysler Canada is always looking for ways to improve. For example, in 2009 the HEMI was changed to have variable-cam timing which uses both the intake and exhaust of the engine. There is a reason this engine is in the SRT8 lineup, the best vehicles need the best engine available. Check out all the specs of this class-leading engine by viewing it on the Chrysler Canada site.
