- the jeep wagoneer and grand wagoneer are rumored to get stellantis' new inline-six engine, dubbed hurricane.
- the high-output version of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter is slated to produce 500 hp and 475 pound-feet of torque.
- owner's manuals and a screenshot from jeep's configurator purport to reveal towing and pricing specs for this new engine option.
stellantis recently revealed a new inline-six engine called hurricane, and it appears that the jeep wagoneer and grand wagoneer will be among the first models to use this new powertrain. tfltruck.com found an amended owner's manual for the 2022 wagoneer and grand wagoneer that lists towing specs for the new twin-turbo 3.0-liter engine, while journalist gary gastelu tweeted a screenshot of jeep's online configurator that briefly showed the inline-six as a $2000 option (it's since been removed from jeep's website).
if we put all this evidence together with stellantis' claims for the hurricane engine, we can surmise that the jeep grand wagoneer will soon offer the high-output version of the inline-six in addition to the standard 6.4-liter v-8. the hurricane engine's claimed 500 hp and 475 pound-feet of torque beat out the big v-8's 471 hp and 455 pound-feet. the less expensive wagoneer might use the lower-output version of the new inline-six, which claims 400 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. the wagoneer currently offers a 392-hp 5.7-liter v-8 engine with an etorque hybrid system.
the owner's manual shows that the 3.0l models offer maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds when equipped with rear-wheel drive and a towing package. this matches the 5.7l wagoneer's max rating.
stellantis previously said that the hurricane could make its way into any of its products with longitudinal engines, so this is likely just the start of this new powertrain's prevalance across the lineup. we think it will eventually replace the hemi v-8s currently found in ram trucks, jeep suvs, and many other products.
