    As Fiat Chrysler’s new four-cylinder engines are hitting dealer lots, the company is reportedly working on a  brand new straight-six engine  to go along with it. The original plan was to use boosted versions of the Pentastar V6, but either size or power constraints made that less practical...

    The Jeep Wrangler is one of the prototypical American vehicles —except, perhaps, for the four-cylinder turbo engine, which is sourced from Termoli, Italy. The Jeep Cherokee may have started out with a set of basic dimensions from Alfa Romeo, but its four-cylinder turbo engine is   made in...

    There haven’t been a lot of 2.0 liter engines made so far, if a new Cherokee recall (NHTSA #18V344000) is any indication. Just 14 vehicles in the US, and one elsewhere, are being recalled because the engines may have been built without valve-stem keepers, which may allow the valve to drop into...

    Opinion. A Jeep spokesman told us that the four-cylinder in the 2018 Wrangler JL is called “eTorque” — including the belt-starter-generator mild-hybrid system. The gasoline motor itself is prosaically dubbed, “2.0-liter turbocharged engine with eTorque assist”. The official portrait simply...

    The horsepower rating for the optional turbo-powered Wrangler launching in Toledo next month is a hot topic of debate in our forums. Is the recently reported number for real, or just a typo? Either way, the horsepower for the new Hurricane Four engine revealed by FCA in a filing to NHTSA in...

    Speculation.  The new FCA in-line six-cylinder — reportedly dubbed “Tornado” — will have to fit into some tight spaces. Because of that, we don’t expect the block to be a “four-cylinder with two more holes tacked on.” Sources expect a displacement of just under 3.0 liters (versus the...

    Speculation. Chrysler/FCA US engines have long been tagged with the names of Allied fighters as their product names — the major exception being the Demon’s, so it would not be leaked as easily . Those names include Eagle (5.7 Hemi), Apache (392), and Hurricane — the forthcoming four-cylinder...

    According to Real Fast Fotography, which supplied the photo below, this Jeep Cherokee is busily testing the new Hurricane turbocharged four-cylinder engine , based on FCA’s “GME” engine series. A standard and turbocharged GME will replace the current “World Gas Engines,” as well as some...

    Analysis. A great deal has happened since the last time we looked at the future of FCA US engines — mostly, we have learned about the new straight six. The GSE four-cylinders , already being produced for Fiat, will replace FCA engines under around two liters in displacement, adding efficiency...

    With the official 2017 model year announcement just one day away, and attention to be focused on the cars and trucks, it seems like a good time to look at what’s under the hood. From biggest to smallest: The Viper V10 is likely to simply be dropped, closing the final chapter on pre-Daimler...
