Dodge’s Legendary HEMI 5.7L V8 to be Replaced by a Boosted Straight-6

News of Stellantis’ new turbocharged straight-6-cylinder engine is already a few months old but this is the first time that a date for its reveal is shared. It is expected that the new engine will be premier in only a few months at the 2022 edition of the New York Auto Show.

What isn’t known is what vehicle the new engine will be introduced in. A quick survey of Stellantis’ North American product line, including Dodge, Chrysler, Ram, Fiat, and Jeep, the latter SUV brand is the most likely contender to feature the engine.

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee First Drive Review: The King is not Dead; All Hail the New King

The latest generation Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Grand Cherokee L, and Wagoneer seem like a good fit, according to us and Autoblog. All three can be fitted with the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 , the very engine the 6 will replace. The same HEMI is a popular choice for Ram so there’s a possibility it’ll make its way behind the pickup’s big front grille in time.

We presume the new engine will be more powerful, efficient, and svelte for considerable improvements overall. Of the many questions that remain, we wonder how much more expensive the 6 will be and if it’ll be as reliable and robust.
