    I know what you were referring to and I agree. I just thought it interesting what they're doing with an I6.

    ... just sayin', maybe the 21st century looks more and more like :
    .
    Stellantis introduced a twin-turbo, inline-six dubbed "Hurricane" as a future replacement for the venerable HEMI V8. The 3.0-liter engine was presented in a Standard Output (SO) version with over 400 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque alongside a High Output (HO) delivering more than 500 hp and 475 lb-ft. As it turns out, an even more potent configuration is currently in the works.

    Yeah, I'm sute it sounds "great" too.
    :rolleyes:
    Mavericks would need some serious modification to withstand 450+ lb.-ft. of torque. Of course it certainly can be done...

    Looking at the girth of that engine, I doubt it.
