    Funny, my father lived with a straight 6 Ford F-100 for years travelling around Canada in construction and it ran forever.

    I had a '76 Dodge 1/2 ton with a 225 straight six and the motor out lasted the body lol. Loved that old truck, both had 3 on the tree.

    I look forward to see what they have in the future with old and new technology.

    This interests me. I could use a twin turbo straight six to add to the list of wonderful Mopar engines I have driven. May even bring me back to a sedan even though I have said never again, ya know how that goes though.

    Edit: Future Jeep Wrangler? NA versions as well?

    I don’t know but I will say that the Jeep 4.0 traced back to some very old engines...

    Indeed, it has a pretty long history. The "parent" of the AMC 258 CID I6 / 4.2L ( I owned two Pacers with that engine ) hit the market in 1964. And I heard, anecdotally, that the foundry was of Nash origin from the early 1900's (1910-ish?). AMC turned the 258 / 4.2L into the 4.0L in time for the Chrysler acquisition of AMC-Jeep.

    I'd say 2.9 to 3.5 ish depending on application.

    Great news.
    Ford has been reaping the rewards on their EB turboed engines for what 6-7 years now? Time to get it done.

    cannot hit like enough on this. I hope they're not just diesel, and i hope at least one of them makes it into a rwd car (not cuv/suv/truck). AND for the US Market. Not just friggin, Europe. (no offense to our euro ppl)

    seems reasonable as you don't need too much displacement if you're gonna boost 'em! :D

    Does "Straight Six" ( AMC chosen name :) ) Preclude it (or them) from being a Slant Six ?
