Drivers have their choice of the tried and true 3.6-liter engine, or a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

The smaller engine features FCA's mild-hybrid eTorque system, which swaps the alternator for a small electric motor and generator for better off-the-line power. Regenerative braking resupplies the 48-volt lithium-ion battery and a stop-start system helps fuel economy.

In all, the 2.0-liter engine knocks out 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
