Since fiat is apart of the mopar group now I saw this link about a new v8 fiat is makeing 365 horse power. And 460 foot pound of torque. Imagine the tune ability of that motor

Your link isn't working, you put the smileup emoticon right beside it so it thinks that's part of the link. Put a space in between the html and the ":" to solve the problem.

That does make some decent power and torque. I'm just not a fan of V8 diesels. They just sound wrong in my opinion... I'd rather see a downsized inline 6 go into the 1500's. Now that would be pretty cool.

Got it fixed now

If that engine went into a 1500 platform I would buy it immediately.

i would like to see this in the 1500.

Scuttlebutt from Dodge (the dealer near me) is it will be a 3.0 L V6 diesel in the 1500.

Think they should have just sourced 4BT mills from Cummins...

There is another thread somewhere.... it's supposed to be a 3.0L turbo V6 diesel available on the '14 model years.

That V8 would be sweet, at least after it's been out a few years and had time for the bugs to get worked out.

I forget exact specs on the engine, but it's made by Fiat and GM.... it's the same engine that's been in the Grand Cherokee for a few years overseas...
