    It was discussed in the Tigershark thread... all the comparable 2.0 Turbo’s were listed by HP and Torque.

    It is truly a class leading engine. :D

    It should be because it is the newest engine.

    Many people claimed it wasn’t powerful enough and even doubted that it was not competitive. The comparisons were made to prove it was. Nearly all the engines on the list are relatively new or revised.

    Is Storm Blue still on the table or does it have late availability. I really want to see how it looks.

    Probably not worth it.

    Hydro blue is an exterior color.

    The tricky part is that Cherokee is kind of inbetween class sizes, as is Compass. That chart picked the best competitors with Ford Escape being the number 1 cross-shop for us.

    Is it a bug that you can't build a Trailhawk Elite with the new 2.0 Turbo with the Technology Group Package? Strange.

    Yes, sir. The only reason why the 2.4L Tigershark stay (now only available in FWD only) is to offer a cheaper base for trims and it still offers slightly better fuel economy than the 3.2L and 2.0L.

    At a dealer?

    I know the dealers I talked to had to build them manually or something out of the ordinary. I chose the 3.2 so can't comment.

    Remember how we talked about the original 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL having chrome headlight surrounds but were changed to black before production started in the US? Well the Chinese built models kept them.
