Magnum Engines Explained

5.9 V8, 5.2 V8, 3.9 V6,
8.0 V10

Chrysler's Magnum Series engine is, more or less, the second generation of the LA-series small block. In early form the Magnum engine was used exclusively in Dodge trucks such as the Dakota, Ram, Durango and Ram Van. As quickly as it came out, the Jeep Grand Cherokee also got them as an option. The production run of the Magnum engine series was from 1992-2003. Aftermarket support for the Magnum series has grown over the years and with proper maintenance, they will last forever.
