Quick Answer

Built as an alternate version of the 3.3-liter engine, the Chrysler 3.5-liter engine has a larger 96-millimeter bore and the addition of overhead cams.

The differences between the 3.5 and the 3.3 continue with the 3.5 having a timing belt instead of a chain. The timing belt drives the water pump on the 3.5, whereas an accessory belt drove the pump on the 3.3. The engine debuted in 1993 and produced 214 horses and 250 pound feet of torque at 4000 rpm. The horsepower continued to increase in subsequent years. The Pentastar 3.6 V6 replaced the 3.5-liter in 2011.

Vehicles using the EGE 3.5-liter include the 1993-1997 Dodge Intrepid, the 1993-1997 Chrysler LHS and the 1993-1997 Eagle Vision. Vehicles using the EGF 3.5-liter include the 2007-2010 Chrysler Sebring and the 2008-2010 Dodge Avenger.

Vehicles using the EGJ 3.5-liter include the 2002-2004 Chrysler Concorde and the 2002-2004 Dodge Intrepid. Vehicles using the most common EGG 3.5-liter include the 2005-2010 Chrysler 300, the 2006-2010 Dodge Charger and the 1999-2004 Chrysler 300M, among others.
