“The Hurricane twin-turbo is a no-compromise engine that delivers better fuel economy and an important reduction in greenhouse gases without asking our customers to give up performance.” Micky Bly, Stellantis Head of Propulsion Systems, said in a press release. 

Sturdy Craftsmanship 

This fuel-efficient engine embraces a foundation of a deep-skirt cast-aluminum block with a structural aluminum alloy oil pan. The aluminum block is deck-plated during the manufacturing to improve the cylinder bore shape for maximum fuel efficiency. It also features a continuously variable displacement oil pump that reduces frictional losses and helps save fuel. For maximum wear resistance and less friction, the engine cylinders feature the finest PTWA coating on the inside.
