Stellantis presented its newly released 3.0-liter Hurricane Twin-turbo I-6 engine, which gets better fuel economy and emits fewer pollutants than larger engines while producing more power and torque than many normally aspirated V-8 and forced induction six-cylinder engines.
The Hurricane Twin-Turbo I-6 high output, with a 3.0-liter engine, produces more than 500 hp/475 lb-ft. of torque yet during heavy use, such as towing, the vehicle maintains a significant fuel economy. In standard output configuration, the engine makes more than 400 hp/450 lb.-ft. of torque.
The Hurricane twin-robust turbo’s base architecture allows Stellantis propulsion systems engineers to develop two different variants, each with an intrinsically smooth-running inline 6-cylinder layout and cutting-edge technology.
3.0-liter Hurricane Twin-turbo I-6 Explained
The 3.0-liter Hurricane Twin-turbo I-6 engine produces V-8-like performance while being 15% more efficient than bigger engines. The Hurricane twin-turbo engine is a no-compromise engine that improves fuel efficiency and reduces greenhouse gas emissions without sacrificing performance.
From 2,350 rpm to redline, the Hurricane twin-turbo retains at least 90% of peak torque. Horsepower and torque figures may vary depending on the vehicle. The first cars with the Hurricane twin-turbo I-6 will hit dealer showrooms this year.
This is how each turbocharger works in the Hurricane twin-turbo I-6. Each turbocharger pumps air into three of the six cylinders. Turbochargers with less inertia rev up faster and give more power to the motor at lower rpm than bigger turbochargers.
The turbochargers on the Hurricane are customized for each model. The turbochargers on the Hurricane SO produce 22 psi of peak boost, while the turbochargers on the Hurricane HO produce 26 psi of peak boost.
Design elements including bore, stroke, and cylinder spacing are similar in 3.0-liter twin-turbo I-6 to the turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4. For now, the 2.0-liter engine can be found in several Jeep models and the newly launched Grand Cherokee 4xe in North America.
What Models Will Get The Hurricane Engine?
What vehicles will be equipped with the 3.0-liter Hurricane Twin-turbo I-6 engine? The short answer is that there are a lot of them. If all of the V8s were swapped out, the Hurricane would almost certainly appear in the Grand Cherokee and Wagoneer lineups. The Ram 1500 could come in both standard and high-output versions. This engine is also expected to be the foundation of the next generation of Dodge’s muscle.
