Inline-6 Hemi replacement on the cusp of production from Stellantis

It appears that Stellantis is prepared to put its prolonged-rumored inline-6 into creation at its Saltillo, Mexico plant, quite possibly marking the beginning of the stop of Chrysler’s extended-managing 5.7L Hemi V8. But so significantly, the automaker’s American brands have remained mum on where specifically the new turbocharged “Tornado” I6 may well land. Stellantis powertrain blog site Stellpower (by way of Muscle mass Autos & Trucks) spotted an entry for a new “GME T6” inline-6 motor on the Saltillo facility’s world-wide-web web page, suggesting that it was either in output or close to it. That entry has given that been eradicated, but the thriller stays. 

We’ve been hearing tidbits in this article and there about this new inline engine for many years, but this is the very first time we’ve seen nearly anything suggesting its arrival is imminent. Usually, these kinds of a important powertrain update would coincide with the start of a new merchandise to showcase it. So significantly, Stellantis has remained mum, even abroad, about exactly where this motor is destined to reside. 2022 model 12 months cars are most likely off the table fully. 

But while it can be typical for new engines to debut with new automobiles and vehicles, it really is not a common reality. Ford’s Coyote V8 missed the corresponding Mustang refresh by a year, for illustration, orphaning the 2010 model and its substantially-desired styling updates with the outdated 4.6L V8 (and the 3.8L V6, for that make any difference the 3.7L Duratec was also late to that occasion). Even sticking just to Stellantis, the JL Wrangler’s powertrains have been a get the job done in development because it arrived back in 2018. The normal V6 and 2.-liter turbo-4 debuted at launch the EcoDiesel, 392 and 4xe all came later. 

And 4xe may possibly be the model by which to evaluate our anticipations. Its introduction didn’t arrive wholly out of nowhere, but it was instead sudden for what turned out to be these types of a good giving. That bodes well for the firm’s present Hemi-powered trucks and SUVs. The Ram 1500, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Wagoneer are all robust candidates to get the new Hemi replacement, as all would greatly gain from even tiny advancements in gas economy. If there is to be a upcoming for the Dodge Charger and Challenger and Chrysler 300, they’d advantage way too. And how about a Gladiator with the wick turned up, positioned as its equal to the Wrangler 392. Transform that Twister into a Dust Satan. Don’t fear we’ve got a good deal a lot more in which that arrived from.
