Rebuilt Dodge 4.7 Liter Engines for Sale are on the rise, not because they are not good engines, more because they are so popular.
Some folks say that change is never a good thing, but in the car engine business change is an important aspect in the growth of any auto company. Chrysler has never really lived on the edge of change, but the company always manages to keep up with the competition in terms of auto design and engine refinements.
When the new 4.7 liter next generation engine was introduced to replace the old 5.2 liter Corsair engine some old car buffs frowned in disapproval, but the better gas mileage and additional power of the 4.7 liter semi-Hemi V8 made believers out of them in a hurry. Those first 4.7 liter engines were the forefathers of the PowerTech V8, which was fitted in the 1999 Grand Jeep Cherokee.
With a displacement of 287 cubic inches, a bore of 3.405, a cast iron block, and all aluminum heads with two valves per cylinder, the 4.7 litre engine proved itself. It produces 235 horsepower with 295 ft-lbs of torque using a chain-driven overhead camshaft. The PowerTech 4.7 Liter engine was on Ward’s Ten Best Engines list for 1999.
Dodge made some cylinder head port flow and compression ratio adjustments in 1999 so the engine was available for sale with different transmissions. Putting a new PowerTech engine design in the Grand Jeep Cherokee in 1999 turned out to be an excellent strategic move since SUVs were in vogue during those gas guzzling years.
The High Output 4.7 Litre HO/Magnum Increased Sales in the 21st Century Auto Market
Tasting the sweet flavor of car sales Dodge added the 4.7 liter engine to the 2000-2009 Dodge Durango, plus the 2000 to present Dodge Dakota, and Dodge Ram. The High Output version of the 4.7 litre PowerTech engine made its debut in 2002. It is one of those engine bad boys that produce 265 horsepower with 330 ft-lbs of torque. Dodge sold the engines in the 2002-2004 Grand Jeep Cherokee, 2005-2007 Dodge Dakota, 2002-2007 Dodge Ram 1500 and the 2006-2007 Mitsubishi Raider.
Dodge made some engine revisions in 2008 so the Grand Jeep Cherokee, Dodge Dakota and Ram pickups, and the Jeep Commander came with the Corsair FFV 4.7 liter engine, which was equipped with dual spark plugs per cylinder, and a new squish/slant combustion system, which raises the horsepower to 310 with 334 ft-lbs of torque.
