I hate hearing the word “hurricane” living in New York, not after the last storm. It’s nice to see however the word being used for something so promising.
Chrysler is developing an engine known as code-named “Hurricane” due out in 2016. Details are scarce at the moment, but AutoNews.com is reporting that it is planned as a retooling of the base 2.0-liter I-4 engine. Thanks to looking into some documents from Chrysler, they believe the engine’s cylinder head is proving to be engineering challenge. “The new head, according to Chrysler documents,‘is an engineering challenge which uses many new technologies to achieve excellent fuel economy.’”
When Auto News asked Chrysler’s reps for a comment, the company declined to say anything.
The I-4 was recently reworked for use in current models of Chrysler products, the Dodge Dart and the upcoming 2014 Jeep Cherokee. The aim in the reworking was for better fuel economy and performance, which would also be the goal of the 2016 “Hurricane” engine.
