Re: 3 NEW engines for the 2020 WL Grand Cherokee

Interesting 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.
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 vehicle

Don't know how true this is...but the 2.0l hurricane turbo inn the upcoming JL wrangler is 368 hp.

The turbo 2.3 Liter inline 4 in my Focus RS is 350 HP/350 TQ, stock....with a bit of tuning guys are getting even more......I don't think 368 HP is that far out of realm of possibility if the motor is built for the boost needed in a 2.0 liter

I'm doubting the hp rating as I just realized the tranny is the 850....the 368hp is too close to the rated hp/tq

Almost 10k miles no problems, Love it....Mine is a 2017 though, heard most of the issues were with early to mid 2016 model builds.....rumor is the head gaskets were mixed up with some Mustang EcoBoost head gaskets which are different....but look similar....

Develop a hemi head for the old 4.0 liter I6 and be done with it. Bulletproof design in the bottom end and get your MPG/HP with a new head and FI technology.

Big issue with the old straight 6 is the length, have to make the nose of the vehicle really long to pass the newest frontal crash tests......:mad:

I don't think a new I6 can be much shorter than the 4.0. Six slugs in a row is gonna be long no matter what.

Um, not the case, as Benz, Toyota and BMW have I 6's in their newest offerings, not v6. These motors are way smoother than a v6, and pentastar is unrefineded in comparison.. The smoothest v6 I have driven is my 89 SHO with Yamaha 3.0.
