FCA backtracks on Jeep Wrangler turbo power claim

11.10.2017

Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) owned Jeep has reportedly backtracked on its original estimation that the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine in the forthcoming Jeep JL Wrangler will produce 368 horsepower or 275 kW.

According to a new leaked document obtained by jlwranglerforums.com, the said output has now been re-classified to Not Rated, while the output for the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 remains unchanged 285 horsepower or 213 kW. While the reasons for the sudden change are unknown, the online forum alleges that a miscalculation might have occurred and that the unit, codenamed Hurricane, might instead produce 268 horsepower (200 kW), therefore placing it below the V6.

The Wrangler, which will also offer a diesel engine option based on previous sightings, will reportedly make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month.
