The rumor that Fiat Chrysler is developing a very inline six-cylinder come forth on Allpar more than a year ago. In a follow-up report in December last year, Allpar tapped this sources to add more information, like the codename “Tornado” and the plan for the turbo charged motor to replace the 5. 7-liter Hemi V8. Even so, it only achieved sense to speak of the engine currently being rumor at the time. Now we have our initial bit of circumstantial evidence, Mopar Insiders having found a patent issued to FCA that uses drawings of any inline-six to describe a system for checking elements in exhaust gases custom-made turbocharged inline-six. FCA applied for some of the patent on November 1, 2017, the Oughout. S. Patent and Trademark Workspace granted it April 2, 2019.

As with everything else in a particular application, the drawing cannot be an accident. Typically the U. S. PTO granted variety of other engine-related patents to FCA on March 19 and August 2 this year, and FCA obtained drawings of a V6 in both of the ones applications.

The December Allpar report presumed a specific version of the Tornado engine can have a single, twin-scroll turbo and slit into service with Chrysler , Dodge , Offroad , and Ram. Another type with twin turbos, and perhaps changed heads, could do time through Alfa Romeo , Maserati , and perhaps SRT. Mopar Insiders doesn’t break down turbo depend, but cites its sources available as revealing an output range of fish huner 360 horsepower up to 525 power. FCA’s E-Booster technology , originally mentioned which will help a revived Alfa Romeo 8C get 700 hp, is designed to enable larger turbos on anxiety about versions of the Tornado I-6. E-Booster electrifies some aspect of the turbocharger — FCA hasn’t got into the important points yet — to eliminate lag even while providing 25 percent more power. Mopar Insiders’ source figures would give the engine so long legs to replace the 3. 2-liter and as well , 3. 6-liter Pentastar V6s, beyond just the 5. 7-liter Hemi V8. The place said the Tornado will also replace the canceled 7. 0-liter Banshee OF V8.

3 of the. 0-liter Tornado Global Medium Car Turbocharged 6 (GME T-6), based on the Hurricane 2 . 0l GME four-cylinder (GME I-4), is usually expected to go into FCA products around the world. We’ll wait to see how the PSA merger might affect allocation. Displacement will come in a hair below aspects liters so as to avoid tax thresholds in certain countries, and it was cited engineers were trying to keep the inline-six no more than three inches longer as opposed to 2 . 4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder. The initial application could be in the next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee , or in the Jeep Wagoneer, can also be could be late availability on both mainly because straight-six isn’t predicted to arrive for a short time.
