Jeep’s own website has essentially confirmed the upcoming twin-turbo inline 6-cylinder Tornado engine as an option on the Grand Wagoneer. The engine appears on the model’s configurator as a $2000 upgrade on all trim levels. Only a picture is provided, no details on output or displacement are present. The picture shows the “twin turbo” branding on the engine cover, however. A leaked patent in 2019 revealed max horsepower for the powertrain would be a lofty 500 horsepower, making it a perfect fit for the giant Grand Wagoneer. The powertrain is expected to debut at the New York Auto Show in April. More details on the leak here.

Kia is aware of the issue and is swiftly investigating, according to The Korean Car Blog. The reports have only come from Korean market vehicles, and apparently the noise is more of a beep than a ringing sound. It occurs when slowing to a complete stop. This is not a major issue, but one that should definitely be ironed out by Kia as soon as possible before too many more get sent to customers.
