3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

2.0L hurricane, inline 6 GME turbo and a NEW Hemi(maybe 2021) to replace the 5.7 and 6.4 hemis. The ZF 8 speeds will continue...probably upgraded. The 6.2l sc hemi will also continue.

to summarize:

-2.0L inline 4 turbo "hurricane" base engine


-inline 6 cylinder GME turbo motor


-(late 2020 or 2021) NEW Hemi engine to replace the 5.7 and 6.4 hemi


-ZF 8 speeds remain


-6.2 sc hemi remains(possible upgrades)

Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

Just to clarify - the existing Hemi will continue until the new one comes (in 2021 or whenever)? That is, there will be NO GAP in Hemi availability?

Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

Good lord, how old is the hemi now? Hasn't it been out since the early 2000s?


What's a GME turbo? They will actually have a turbo 6 and it won't replace the non-SRT hemi?

The inline 6 turbo sounds interesting

The base engine will prob be the hurricane (Laredo trim). Limited and overland would probably get the inline 6 with option for hemi

Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

Will the inline 6 be gas or diesel ?

Guessing that motor will make some serious torque either way.

Ok thought the G was for global didn't think about gasoline. Also since DI has not been added to the Pentastar v6(as of yet) does this signify they (FCA) are moving away from that engine instead of upgrading it?

I always liked the Pentastar in my Jeep has been one of the better V6 engines I have ever owned.

It's ever involving, but they try to keep this fairly well updated:

In the Mazda CX9 4 banger turbo they list HP figures for regular or premium gas. You can use either, just less power with the regular. The Audi Q7 for 62k has a 2 liter turbo.
