Jeep Wagoneer would be the first recipient of the Hurricane engine | Digital Trends Spanish

The place reported Jeep’s publication of an owner’s manual modification on its full-size Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer SUVs. It warns on units equipped with an engine referred to as the “3.0L”, that the turbocharger cooling pump could run for up to 20 minutes after the engine has been shut off, and lists the towing specifications for such. machine.

This would not be surprising except for the fact that the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are offered today only with a 392-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 and a 471-horsepower 6.4-liter V8, respectively. There is no optional 3.0-liter engine for these models.

It’s hard not to conclude that if the new manuals are talking about the Hurricane, the new 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine announced by Stellantis last week, which would put the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer first in line to receive the new engine.

This makes sense in light of the priority manufacturers now place on SUV sales and the fact that the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer twins are new models that hit the market with a bang in the last quarter of 2021.

Additionally, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer may be the recipient of the high-performance version of the Hurricane that Stellantis has promised will produce 500 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque, a notable gain from the 471 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. current V8 Hemi engine. For its part, we expect the Wagoneer to use the lower-power version advertised by Stellantis: 400 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, which is also a gain over the current Hemi V8 that produces 392 horsepower.

According to Stellantis, the Hurricane can be part of any of its products with longitudinal installation engines, so it’s a matter of time before we start seeing it under the hood of vehicles like the Ram 1500 pickup, the Jeep Wrangler and perhaps in versions of farewell to the current generations of the venerable but always exciting Dodge Challenger and Charger among other models.
