    Rumors of a new Mopar V8 engine have been flying around for a while. This mysterious engine, to replace the entire Hemi series, is largely an unknown; but we’ve collected some rumors and speculation. None of this has been verified. First, our industry experts say that, while they might try to keep the efficient Hemi […]

    If I were a guessing man, I would suspect that this rumored V8 and the rumored I6 would share combustion chamber geometry, valve gear, pistons, cylinder size and connecting rods with the upcoming Hurricane 2.0 turbo. 0.5L/cylinder, known emission and combustion performance and a lot of shared parts.

    BMW has done this for the past few years w/ their 0.5L/cylinder engines and been successful at doing so.

    Just speculating

    Love all the new tech coming but hope there is still an engine with HEMI in the name.

    Technology is the name of the game. Have to meet or exceed the 'ever-raising' benchmarks set by other manufacturers. Make it have good low-end torque.
    Ram has a good reputation for engines. The Pentastar V6 currently makes a good base engine. The Hemi® and Cummins® name will hopefully remain.

    I kind of agree with you here.

    G.M. has named 4, 5, 6 and 8 cyl Engines Vortec since about 1995 with success.

    Ford has EcoBoost in 3, 4 and 6 cyl Engines, essentially a replacement for Turbocharged.

    HEMI could continue on as a marketing name.

    Thanks

    They could have. Current V-6 is a better engine if only based on fuel consumption. For some reason Cummins has struggled to put out a superior V shaped smaller (1000 cu/in or less) engine. Not a bad engine but not near as good as the "B" series.
