Is This the Godot I-6 Engine?

Interesting.... Chrysler has been teasing this thing for close to 10 years. It just appeared as an option on the Jeep website as an option for the Grand Wagoneer. 
No power rating, though... It's a 2k upgrade over the 6.4L Hemi, so presumably they'll be impressive.
Twin screws?... This could be interesting, real interesting.

    Yes, waiting for Godot. 👍
    Dan, I hadn't seen that article yet. Interestingly, it seems to have disappeared from the Wagoneer configuration.

    The problem is, it's so darn ugly! I'd wince every time I opened the bonnet.

    The complexity of the electronics and associated algorithms to run a Hurricane engine promises to be a brain numbing black box affair. Adequate aftermarket support to transplant this engine will take 3-5 years to develop. Want a modern I6 now? A few thousand proven turbo charged GM 4.2L Atlas engines are reliably and mercilessly pounding pavement and dirt around the world. Easily achieve 450Hp/550 Ft Lbs and IMHO have a much nicer looking package for +-$10K.

    Agreed. The Atlas is certainly the best option today. 5-8 years from now... The Hurricane will show up in some interesting builds, I think.
