    Not quite. 3.2L will have more horsepower.

    The bigger question should be, does it outperform the competition for hp/tq of the same size engine?

    or perhaps the best question is how well does it work in the Jeep given its intended use...

    I’m interested to see what the reviews are of this engine and later longevity/durability. Here’s to hoping it’s a home run for FCA.
    It’s a welcome addition.

    The Wrangler is, afterall, a niche vehicle. An enthusiast vehicle. I think many people, including aftermarket companies, are wondering if this Hurricane engine is going to be tuneable for big power like a Ford EgoBoost, or if it's just going to be another highly complicated fuel economy option in the lineup with little room for modification. Will be interesting to see how this engine fits into the Jeep lifestyle.

    Start/stop tech, electrification, etc. don't seem to fit the bill for an offroad/enthusiast vehicle. But what do I know?

    Regardless of the mild hybrid aspects of the system, a low end high torque engine that won't be as susceptible to high altitude power loss seems right up Jeeps alley. The Hurricane seems like it's going to be preferable to the Pentastar for the more off-road oriented, only surpassed by the diesel.

    I think/hope you are right. One insider who saw the dyno results said it had a very flat torque curve. Start/stop used to be a common Jeeping technique with a manual transmission when you stopped on steep terrain or in big boulders or both. You would shut it off and start it in gear. Having an electric motor that allowed you to barely creep up and over challenging obstacles seems like it would be great.

    I was looking for the "not enough" response as a choice.

    To close the thread out, 270hp is the winner.

    I was too high on HP, but bang on for torque.
