    I do understand their hesitation to call it "Hurricane" or Turbo. Those names would imply a different kind of performance. But the idea not to use the "ETorque" as a name is puzzling. But hey...... a lot of things FCA does when it comes to marketing leaves me scratching my head...... I am just happy that they are building the damn thing....

    I think you're right. I remember it also. I think it was the 2.0l in the Neon R/T. It was tuned just a hair different than the regular 2.0 in the other Neons. Or was it in the ACR?

    Originally the Wranglers had VVT, now they don't. Unsure when the change happened.

    Just to be clear all of the 3.6L in WRanglers have VVT, it's just the engine cover that varies over the model years.

    Jeep doesn't use the HEMI either and refers it to 5.7L if I am correct.

    I think the ACR was tuned in the most track oriented way, suspension wise, but the r/t was tighter tuned than the other trims. Though I'm not as familiar with the 00+ neons as I am with 95-99.

    Dunno about the Neon, but the badge for the 2.7 on my Stratus said Magnum.

    Yep. Funny how the Hurricane than was an inline-four and the GME T6 or "Tornado" was another Jeep inline-six engine and both just happen to be war aircraft like all the other modern Chrysler/FCA US engines.

    Totally off topic, sorry. But do Renegades in other countries have both front seats powered?

    Is an option for Jeep Renegade Limited and Trailhawk, has to be ordered with leather seats.
    No storage space in passenger seat.

    The right seat is the one used in right hand drive Renegade.

    In Brazil there are also paddle shifters that in Europe or North America are not available.
    But in Europe can be ordered in Fiat 500X.
