Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

I am not too happy to see the Pentastar go into the sunset and be replaced with an inline engine. There may be advantages to inline over V arrangements but packaging is important to me. I feel current SUVs have become entirely too big and I am not looking forward to 4 feet of engine hood or the bad driving dynamics of having the engine over the front axle instead of behind.

I will give away a little of that for more articulation. Crossing a small ditch diagonally requires my GC to dangle two tires in the air. One in the ditch and the opposite rear off the ground. Practically no articulation at all. My 98 Dakota can handle those better in two wheel drive no problem while I struggle with AWD Grand Cherokee. One of my biggest complaints. There's no excuse for having to use momentum to get across a small ditch when an older sedan goes across it without even noticing.

Good news about a new hemi. Can't wait to see the specs. Hopefully an aluminum block? losing 75+ lbs might be nice.

Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

It seems reasonable that they could take the hemi design and make some modern improvements to it and yes, weight reduction should be part of that.

Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

JM', I don't think that the purpose of this thread is to lay out all the potential options...Scott was just indicating that there likely are some new engines coming our way. It's way too soon to know everything they are considering...and I would bet that the marketplace and regulatory situation will factor into this, too.

Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

A new Diesel engine would be nice. An inline 6 cylinder turbo diesel would be really tempting to trade up to.

Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

Interesting that the 6.4 will go bye bye and the supercharged 6.2 will be the lone big dog. Guess they figure go big or go home.

Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

New euro co2 regulations doesn't necessarily mean the new Hemi engines will have more hp. The new HEMI displacement sizes still remains to be seen??? Could be the same displacement size, just a hemi smog friendly update.

What's a GME turbo? They will actually have a turbo 6 and it won't replace the non-SRT hemi?
no, the 1950's.

Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

Still details coming in but no mention from my source of a diesel. But there are other sources like allpar saying there will be a new diesel
