The inline-six, a classic engine design noted for durability, fuel efficiency and smoothness, will return to the Dodge and Jeep lineups this year.
Stellantis said Friday its new Hurricane 3.0-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder engine — designed and engineered from a clean slate — fits front-engine, rear-wheel-drive vehicles such as the Jeep Wrangler and Grand Cherokee, Ram pickups and the Dodge Durango SUV.
The company did not identify specific vehicles the new engine will appear in. Availability will be announced when 2023 models debut.
The new engine could be headed first to the Jeep brand. On Thursday, a photo of the engine appeared on the online configurator for the Grand Wagoneer, showing the twin turbo six listed as a $2,000 option. The photo was removed later Thursday.
