Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee
Only thing with a flat plane crank v8 is the lack of low end grunt. I don't see a flat plane design in such a heavy vehicleInteresting developments. I never thought an inline 6 would be in the future. That creates all sorts of fore-aft weight distribution issues, unless you bury the back half into the dash like BMW does.
As for the V8, I'd like to see it go 4 valve, DOHC like the current Pentastar. That seems to me the only way to keep efficiency up and emissions low. If they really want to improve it, they need to go with a flat plane crankshaft.
