The standard equipment engine in most models is the 225 cu in. slant-six. Although this engine has a long stroke by modern standards, it presents a low profile because the block is canted 30° to the right.

The 318 and 360 cu in. engines belong to Chrysler's A block series of V8s. The 318 cu in. engine answers the need for a small, reliable, economy power-plant, while the 360 offers more power.
