The New Hurricane Fuel-Efficient Engine from Jeep

The New Hurricane Fuel-Efficient Engine from Jeep

Jeep has accounted for the new 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine named Hurricane. This engine delivers better fuel economy and fewer emissions than larger engines while at the same time generating more horsepower and torque than a naturally aspirated V-8 and boosted six-cylinder power plants. Designed with an inherently smooth-running I-6 configuration and state-of-the-art technology, this engine's twin-turbos offer a hearty base architecture that enables the propulsion systems engineers.

V6 Fuel Efficiency with V8 Power

The Hurricane twin turbo's robust base architecture enables the propulsion systems engineers to create two distinct variants. The Standard Output configuration is optimized for fuel economy, including cooled exhaust gas circulation while delivering enhanced power and torque, more than 400 horsepower, and 450 lb.-ft. of torque. In comparison, the High Output configuration is optimized for excellent performance with more than 500 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. Torque while maintaining significant fuel economy during heavy use, such as towing. The Hurricane twin-turbo achieves this V-8-rivaling performance while being 15% more efficient than larger engines. 

How many turbos are on the Hurricane?

Each turbocharger in the Hurricane engine feeds three cylinders. The two smaller turbos use less inertia to spool up faster and deliver a boost to the engine at lower rpm than a single, large turbo. The compressed air passes through an engine-mounted water-to-air charge air cooler to reduce its temperature before entering the intake manifold. Cold air is denser, allowing for better performance and helping manage in-cylinder temperatures. An electric pump circulates coolant after the engine is shut down to help cool the turbocharger units for enhanced durability. The Hurricane's turbochargers are optimized for each version. The turbos on the Hurricane Standard Output deliver a peak boost of 22 psi, while the Hurricane High Output turbos deliver 26 psi of peak boost.

What is the benefit of thermally spraying on the Hurricane?

The many components of the Hurricane engine have been thermally sprayed with a microstructure of metallic and oxide components that metallurgically transform are the key benefits of the Plasma Transfer Wire Arc coating inside the cylinders. This spray offers less friction, reduced weight, and unparalleled wear resistance from a thermally sprayed. The PTWA coating is ultra-thin, compared with 3 to 4 millimeters of a cast iron liner, and has ten times the wear resistance. Minimizing friction throughout the engine enhances its efficiency, reducing emissions and fuel consumption.
