Gilles: new four-cylinders

by David Zatz on

Ray Aurand reported that Ralph Giles announced a new set of four cylinder engines to appear in 18 months, during an Autoline After Hours appearance. That would set the calendar date at around August 2015, corresponding roughly to the appearance of a refreshed 2016 Dodge Dart.

These are almost certainly the previously rumored “Hurricane” series of turbocharged World Gasoline Engines, in 2.0 and 2.4 liter versions; though some would prefer replacements for the WGE series, perhaps based loosely on the Pentastar V6, this seems unlikely.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
