    I am thinking that the new Jeep Hurricane Four (love that name btw) 2.0L Turbo is going to make 290hp, and similar torque.

    Thinking out loud

    If it is going to need plug changes at 36k miles, that means they are really cramming in a bunch of air (lots of boost). That means a high Horsepower per Liter (hp/l) ratio (around 150 hp/l, guessing).

    The upper end, meaning high dollar exotics, all are in the 180-190 hp/l range (Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren, Bugatti, Koeniggseggeggssesegg). Those are engines with lots of high dollar parts well out of the price point this engines be will hit.

    Less exotic pressurized engines, more normal engines, with cheaper parts, are all in the 145-155 hp/l range (Ford, Audi, Volvo, Subaru, Honda, etc). These are not their base engines, but engines designed more for performance.

    So, if we aim for the lower end of that range, I get 290hp. If we use the same math, and the same “target” engines, we end up with about 295-300 pound feet of torques. This is assuming a 2l engine.

    What I am really saying is that this new engine will make 145 hp/l, and 150 lb-ft/l in Jeep form.

    There is a range of engines in the 125-135 hp/l range, but those are all engines that have existed for a while, and they are all base engines.

    The H4 is a new engine, and it was designed by a company known as “the engineering” company.

    So, I thought, why would Mopar spend BILLIONS to line up their super important new H4 with the older engines. I bet they line it up with the newer engines in the 145-155 hp/l range.

    In Dodge form, I would expect it to make more hp.

    In SRT form I expect the mere mention of the mention of the engine will scare most children, and frighten expectant mothers into early labor.


    ***Muther leans back in chair, head askew, mouth open, and drooling at the thought of a new SRT4, and thinks to himself, how really bad word ironic is that? Before we had a great platform for a new SRT4, but no engine. Now, there will be an epic engine, but no freaking car for it, sighs. Hopes that Ralph can talk Sergio into letting SRT have its way with the 4C, and call it the...

    I can confirm it will not have 290 horsepower!

    Well, you already know something!
    Then, let me ask you a question. What will you choose, Wrangler/Hurricane OR Wrangler/3.6L ??

    It really depends on how the person plans to use the truck.

    Personally, I would like a diesel JT :)

    The turbo four is really fascinating. I can’t wait to see it in the Cherokee.

    The JT with a diesel is going to be a huge seller IMO. I doubt they will be able to keep them on the lots.

    More horsepower less torque.

    Thank you for the very cryptic answer.
    I am encouraged, and I have no more questions (related to engine output).

    This is something I can ask my contacts about.

    Unfortunately, they won't redesign the Cherokee without the V6 to get rid of the snout.

    Back to the topic, if it is the optional engine, it should do more than PUG. That's at least 290 on its own or accompanied by an electric motor...

    so let's see... max torque of 295 at roughly 1500 rpms, 14% drop-off by 5500 = .86*295*5500/5252 = 265 hp

    The Raptor has ~128.57 HP per liter.
    So it wouldn't be unreasonable to suspect that FCA would get ~257HP from its 2.0

    That being said I think they'll get 11 more, just because its lower cylinder count means less friction internally, so I voted 265-270, with an eye on 268 as the ACTUAL number. Which would be 100 less than the "Typo" original number :)

    Can anyone confirm which vehicles this engine will power (apart from obvious)

    I believe I guessed wrong, especially since there’s a gap left out: 271-274, 281-284, and 296-367.

    Well darn - that means either my torque or rpm guesses have let me down, lol.
