Stellantis presents the Hurricane, an all-new inline-turbo V6 twin-turbo engine. From the point of view of Europeans, perhaps this is a rather noticeable development, but for Americans, this mass is a huge step in the “cleaning” of the vehicle fleet.
The six-cylinder engine, which Already surfaced in 2019It, according to its makers, delivers the power and performance of a V8 engine, but with up to 15 percent lower consumption and emissions. The Hurricane has two turbines, a capacity of 3.0 liters, and in principle it delivers “more than” 400 US horsepower and 610 Nm. In European power, this is more than 405 hp. In addition to the “Standard Output” version, there is also a High Output variant, with more than 500 hp and a torque of at least 644 Nm.
While the Hurricane is completely new in its own right, it shares many parts with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine already used on many Jeep models. The new three-liter engine fits cars on the STLA large platform and the STLA frame, the two largest platforms for the quad introduced in mid-2021. For now, don’t expect an Alfa with this block on board, because in practice we’ll likely find it on the all-wheel drive models Rear from Jeep, Dodge and Ram. These are the cars that are often now equipped with a Hemi-V8 engine With an imbalanced amount of strength positively† These motors are not directly referenced to the output, but the fact that the Hurricane was built at the factory where the time-honored Hemi was made is evident.
“While Stellantis has significant electrification plans, with a 50 percent share of all-electric vehicles by 2030, the internal combustion engine will continue to play a major role in our portfolio in the coming years,” Stellantis answers questions that may be on your car’s lips now.
The six-cylinder in-line concept is also undergoing a gentle revival. Not so long ago, this type of engine was mainly the domain of BMW, but Since 2014 Mercedes is involved again. Recently Mazda joined this groupwith the arrival of the rear-wheel drive CX-60.
