This would be a four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-liter that would be associated with an automatic gearbox eight-speed. This block will however not exclusive Wrangler because it should then take place under the hood of other vehicles in the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles group (FCA).
Dubbed Hurricane, this newcomer will have a displacement of 2.0 liters. According to anonymous sources in the publication Autonews, one can expect an output of about 300 horsepower. It will also incorporate advanced technologies such as the construction of the aluminum block, twin scroll turbocharger (twin scroll in good French!) And direct injection, among others.
Nothing has been confirmed yet. The next generation of the Wrangler is expected for 2017 as a model 2018. There have been several rumors surrounding the upcoming SUV off-road Jeep, one of which suggested that a structure built almost full aluminum like the Ford F-150 would be privileged.
Last May, however, the big boss Sergio Marchionne FCA Group indicated that the 2018 Wrangler might be “too high” even if he still was using steel for its construction.
