After the quick website leak we reported yesterday, Stellantis has decided to make an official announcement about their all-new engine. Called the ‘Hurricane’ (instead of Tornado like many predicted), it is a twin-turbo 3.0L inline 6-cylinder producing 400-500+ horspeower, depending on which engine bay it lands in. It will make its debut at the New York Auto Show in the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, and will be a $2000 upgrade over the 6.4L V8. That’s right, it won’t be replacing the fan favorite V8, just supplement it. RAM will also be gracing the 1500 and other models with the engine in the future. It was also designed with electrification in mind, so don’t be surprised to see hybrid or plug-in hybrid variants down the line. More on this here.
In case you missed it, earlier this week a terrifying video emerged of a red Chevy Silverado being flipped on its side by a tornado in Elgin, Texas. A teenager named Riley Leon was inside, bravely escaping the twister without any serious injuries. Riley had just bought the truck from his father and was devastated that it was damaged so soon after getting it, but Chevy noticed and has decided to do something about it. Partnering with the Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet of Fort Worth, TX, they are donating a new 2022 Silverado to Riley. Read more about this story here, and watch the full video here.
