Stellantis Reveals New 3.0-Liter Twin-Turbo Inline-Six Engine, The Hurricane
In an effort to cut emissions and increase fuel economy, Stellantis has introduced its latest addition to its six-cylinder engine collection, called “The Hurricane.”
According to a Stellantis press release, the Hurricane is a 3.0-liter twin-turbo, six-cylinder engine that is capable of delivering V-8 levels of power for its line of Dodge, Jeep, and RAM vehicles.
Equipped with smooth-running I-6 and modern technology, the engine will be available in two variants and is compatible with any vehicle sold with a longitudinal engine. In its standard output the engine can put out 400 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft of torque, and its high output can release 500 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft of torque. The exact numbers will depend on the individual brand using the Hurricane.
On top of its power output, Stellantis takes pride in the Hurricane’s better fuel economy and few emissions from larger vehicles. “The Hurricane twin-turbo is a no-compromise engine that delivers better fuel economy and an important reduction in greenhouse gases without asking our customers to give up performance,” says Micky Bly, Stellantis head of propulsion systems.
Many fans and enthusiasts believe that the new inline-six will potentially replace underperforming V-8s. Of course, we’ll see for ourselves once it starts showing up in some modern builds.
