Fiat Chrysler is supposedly cooking up an all-new 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine codenamed “Hurricane” that sources say will debut in the next-generation (JL) Jeep Wrangler making “nearly” 300 horsepower. Sounds like a fun Wrangler to me.
A heavily camouflaged test mule that can only be a Jeep Wrangler was just spotted outside Auburn Hill, Michigan. Spy photographer caught it in action and you can see his photos on Off-Road.com.

The Jeep Wrangler and Land Rover Defender: two awesomely archaic vehicles steeped in cultural identity. That would be American and British, respectively, of course. What better excuse for a trans-Atlantic truck throwdown?
The usual formula for anything worth its weight in clicks on the automotive blogosphere is to mention the one name that has become the go-to benchmark for insanity and attainable power—Hellcat. The venerable engine can make any car, no matter how hum-drum, more desirable to the unwashed internet masses instantly. So,…
