Chrysler Centura - KC Centura

KC Centura

The KC model (from June 1977 to the end of 1978) series dropped the 2.0 and 3.5 engines, replacing them with a low-compression (7.6:1) 4.0-litre Hemi engine which ran on standard-grade fuel and aided fuel economy, and a 4.0-litre high-compression 2-barrel (9.0:1) version of the Hemi for more performance and towing ability. The KC was also more Australian, using VDO gauges, Valiant-style steering wheel, steering column and various other parts from the larger Australian Valiant lineup. While the 3.5-litre had a 3.23:1 differential ratio, the 4.0 got a 2.92:1 ratio. The KC was offered in GL or upscale GLX trims, along with the addition of sports package options.

By 1979, the Centura had been replaced by the 4-cylinder Chrysler Sigma, of Mitsubishi origins.
