    OK, so if I get rid of the rounding adjust how far peak torque is achieved, how about 268 hp and 295 ft/lbs? ;)

    I voted for 368 because....well I would be AMAZED if it actually had that haha.

    I clicked 290-295 because I want it to be more than the Pentastar. It's got a turbo dangit! Probably realistically in the 270 range.

    I will say it does have less horsepower than the 3.6L Pentastar in the Dodge Challenger SXT.

    300 horsepower, 295 lb-ft is my guess.

    That "300" number would be very valuable for marketing, I would be very surprised if they came in under that.

    I would have to put it at at least the 290hp mark just because there is no way to put something out brand new that is less than a Ford. Beyond that is a matter of boost, which means the engine has to be engineered the way Chrysler engineered things in the 60s and early 70s, near bulletproof and over engineered. To which, what with the innovative Demon inner cooler system, which has been recognized as thinking outside the box, that HP number could be taken easily up to 325hp without batting an eye, but that wouldn't be too smart, but then again, it is a different class of engine than an NA V6, which has the potential of being turbo'd, or blown, too, so very possible 325hp with ease.

    If they want to make a serious impact 368hp would be how to do it.

    If they want serious reliability and drivability issues 368 hp would be how to do it. It will have between 240 and 300 hp, so I don't know what the big secret is.

    Horsepower/torque of the GME T4 "Hurricane" with or without the BSG system contribution ?

    Without => smaller turbine to have more torque at lower rpm and throttle response, but less maximum power.
    So for the engine only about 250 / 260 HP.

    The JT with a diesel is going to be a mess when they first arrive. Supply will not come close to demand. That being said, a lot of people are going to think they can get one for under $40k CAD, as current Wrangler clients seem to think they can get a Rubicon Unlimited for that price currently. A JT Diesel Rubicon is going to be $60k CAD MSRP without any rebates (current JKs never get rebates either). A Diesel "entry-level" JT is not going to be ordered by dealers, and with mark-up alive and well, I think these JT diesels are going to be sell for ungodly amounts.

    The comparable Ford/Mazda engine is 240 hp or 252 hp (Focus ST only). Every option in the survey beats Ford.

    325 is above the available choices ;)

    Initially yes, but it is quite possible things will calm down.
