Last chance to: Name that engine

So far this week, you’ve heard a HEMI® Hellcat engine on a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 on a Jeep® Wrangler, a 5.7-liter HEMI on a Chrysler 300S and, yesterday, a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo on a Fiat 500 Abarth.

The guttural sound of the single turbocharger on the 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo is as recognizable as any of our engines. The high-performance, twin-intercooled MultiAir Turbo gives Abarth drivers up to 160 horsepower and 183 lb.-ft. of torque, while offering a 0-to-60 mph performance in the low 7-second range.

As we head into a finally Friday, are you feeling lucky? What are your ears telling you the below is?

Thanks for stopping by. I lead the corporate social media efforts for FCA US, which means I oversee things like content, community management, outreach, monitoring and most anything else that comes with social media management. Being a lifelong metro Toledo, Ohio, resident, the passion for Jeep® has always been evident. Since joining FCA in late 2010, it’s been inspiring to get a first-hand view of that same level of passion for our all of the company’s vehicles, past and present. It’s that kind of true Mopar-or-no-car spirit that reminds me every day that FCA doesn’t simply make cars and trucks, we make vehicles that develop community among its owners. And that’s what I try to portray in the corporate social voice.
