The new Jeep Wrangler received a V8 from the Camaro SSFebruary 15, 2018
American atelier Bruiser Conversions has prepared the first tuning for the new generation Jeep Wrangler SUV. The stock engine of the car is proposed to be replaced by a 6.2-liter V8 from Chevrolet Corvette C6 and Camaro SS.
The engine, which will work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, produces 456 horsepower and 576 Nm of torque. From the factory Wrangler can be equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine (285 forces and 353 Nm), a two-liter turbojet (272 and 400 Nm) or a 3.0 V6 diesel engine.
Public debut of the new generation Jeep Wrangler took place in November last year. The model was built on a more solid and light frame, and aluminum was used in the bodywork. For the first time the SUV has already been equipped with a spoiler and 33-inch off-road tires.
Another innovation was the appearance of a “soft” hybrid system – a two-liter 4-cylinder turbo combined with a starter generator with a belt drive and a 48-volt on-board network.
In the salon Jeep Wrangler there was a new instrument panel with a color on-board computer and transmission indicators, and on the central console – four ports for additional equipment.
