Jeep: The 8 cylinder engine will give way to more powerful and efficient 6 cylinder hybrid engines

The legendary Jeep brand's V8 engines appear to be coming to an end, making way for more powerful and better-efficient V6 hybrids.

At the international launch of the Grand Cherokee 4Xe plug-in hybrid, Jeep Global Head of Product Marketing Jeff Ellsworth spoke about the future of the company's long-standing 8-cylinder engines, saying that V6 hybrids are the future, which basically means that the engine The eight cylinder will stop working at a certain point.

Jeep's head of marketing adds that the company retains the V8 engine in certain markets around the world, and in the United States in particular, but the truth is that the plug-in hybrid is now the preferred option.

Jeep's all-new V6 twin-turbo engine is a very good hint of what the future holds for the brand.

This 3.0-liter engine comes with two levels of performance - the first with 400 hp and 610 Nm of torque in standard form, and it may reach 500 hp and 780 Nm of torque in the leading versions, which is more power than some versions of the 6.4-liter Jeep V8, But it's still less than the output of the 6.2-liter supercharged V8.

But does all this mean that the next generation of the high-performance Grand Cherokee SRT can embrace electrification? Jeep's marketing director was not prepared to give a definitive confirmation of this question, saying: Although that seems likely now, I'm not the one to say it, but at the end of the day, electricity is the way to the future but at the moment we have nothing to confirm.
