The standard Hurricane engine is a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged I-6 with an output of 420-horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque. It will be the standard engine on the 2023 Jeep Wagoneer.

The high-output Hurricane engine is a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged I-6 with an output of 510 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. The 510, as the high-output engine is known, is standard on the stretched 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer L.
Both Hurricane engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

There are no plans to offer an optional V-8 given that the new I-6 performs better by all metrics than Jeep's top-end 471-hp, 455-lb-ft 6.4-liter Hemi V-8. With the Hurricane engine, fuel economy improves by 15 percent over the 5.7-liter V-8 and is 13 percent better than the 6.4-liter V-8, we are told.

While the Hurricane engine debuts on the stretched Wagoneer family, Jeep is offering the Hurricane as an option on a limited number of the conventional-sized 2022 Jeeps, too. The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer which has the 6.4-liter V-8 as its standard engine will offer the Hurricane 510 as an option. Eventually, the short-wheelbase 2022 Wagoneer with the 5.7-liter V-8 base engine will get the Hurricane 410 as an option.

Sooo no updates on fitting it into a JL...
Well, they had to start somewhere, given that they are ramping up production. Given that this is their Halo engine, they rolled it out on their heaviest and most expensive (non-commercial) vehicle - the Grand Wagoneer L.

They had to do something to get that thing to move with it's 8,000 of lbs fat :) The poor Hemi 6.4 couldn't do it.
