Masterpieces of Chrysler
The last 4.7L was released on April 9, 2013, ending 15 years of production. More than 3 million units were produced. The 4.7L was the first in the family. It had a cast-iron block and aluminium cylinder heads with two valves per cylinder. It used chain-driven camshafts, with a camshaft in the head at each end. The original one had 235 hp. The 4.7L V8 was available with a four-speed automatic transmission and a five-speed manual transmission. It has grown thanks to its wise management. The company did not miss the opportunity to design and launch new models in line with the trend of the times. The Chrysler 300 was available in four different body styles. Consumers could choose from two- or four-door hardtops, convertibles or sedans. True off-road enthusiasts will not be disappointed to learn that Mopar is launching a full line of genuine performance parts and accessories.
Almost all Mopar products are new, refurbished or remanufactured. Our stunning new line for this legendary car shows how the Mopar brand evolved in the 1980s to help owners adapt their cars to any lifestyle. The K-Car platform was the basic vehicle platform introduced by Chrysler Corporation for the 1981 model year. It had a transverse engine, front-wheel drive, independent front-wheel drive and semi-universal suspension. This was a significant change from the company's previous practice of using fixed-axle, rear-wheel-drive configurations. The chassis was developed at a time when the company was underperforming in the marketplace and had an initially modest range of small and mid-size saloons and station wagons. Eventually, it was able to support almost 50 different models, including all-wheel drive. This played a crucial role in the company's subsequent turnaround. The 68RFE is equipped with a 6.7L Cummins ISB diesel motor. Its basic design and features are the same or similar to the 45 and 545RFE models. It has a larger chassis and a different propeller configuration.
