Serious about gusto, the Chrysler automotive family currently offers an engine by the name of Tigershark. Built with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder design, this hearty powerplant affords the models to which its fitted 160hp and 148lb-ft of torque.

But, as you know; our mutually preferred American brand is diverse. They boast an array of engines that offer performance and efficiency, like the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 standard with the Chrysler 300. Now, the automaker is engineering yet another exciting option.

Make way for the Hurricane. The newest engine, with a robust name, is slated to join the brand's fleet of innovative car parts. Debuting here in Tiffin, OH, most likely in 2016, this automotive heart will probably hold its roots in a similar 2.0-liter four-cylinder body, albeit with added technologies.

While those added mechanics have yet to be officially announced by Chrysler, tongues are wagging that they could include the automaker's MultiAir2 electrohydraulic variable valve timing system. For those of you who may not know, this fuel-sipping technology is applied to the 2.4-liter Tigershark affording the engine increased efficiency.

That means, if present with the forthcoming Hurricane, new Chrysler models fitted with the all-new engine are perched to offer ample fuel-economy alongside thrilling driving dynamics. That's exciting.
