Yeah, there are lots of little w h i z motors that aren't reliable or durable.

Water cooled exhaust manifolds? Coated cylinder walls (remember the disastrous "nickasil" coating of BMW?)? Oh wait - it's a European company today! Check out the durability and reliability of Mercedes and BMW engines. Bottom of the heap. Why do they still sell? Rich people buy or lease them for one year, then get another new one. Hardly the American market for a truck engine with life expectation of 200,000 miles.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing on the sintered cylinder walls. That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Hopefully they'll leave enough 'meat' in the block bore area so the aftermarket can line them with a proper nickle/steel cylinder liner.

Plus each turbo feeding 3 cylinders sounds a lot like a 3-cyl-deactivation MDF mode. "Hey Mr. Macho 'leveled 4x4 truck owner' with 35" meats, a CB, winch and dual flags ....yer actually on 3 cylinders going down the road! -- ha ha" . IDK how that'll fly?

Overall, it sounds like a situation where you mash the accelerator on the hwy and wait for all the processes to kick in before the tk starts to really *go* (cylinders -> Turbos -> Tranny to kick down). After 3 seconds it starts to Actually go. And um...will the water-cooled intercoolers rot out & leak after 5 years of NE salty winters?

That's one thing about pure EV's.... the pedal response is instant. I dusted off a lot of expensive gas cars with the last EV car I rented! LOL It's like there's a big spring on yer car and suddenly someone cuts the hold-down and yer OFF! "yoo-hoo ...goodbyyyye!!"

Honest to gawd ...my 89 GMC with it's 200hp TBI 350 has as good or better throttle response then my '12 Hemi. Gets the same fuel economy, and 270k mi with zero problems! No EPS to replace, low-tech ABS ...rock-solid computer. No supid 'helpful' nannies to fight with.

Then I have an '03 4.7 HO in a G/Cherokee ..no MDF MDS or anything. 240k, no problems, no tick, no warped manifolds. You push the pedal down and it snaps yer neck. It's quick and efforless. Doesn't need to downshift to pass anyone. I could pass my pickup in that thing before the 5.7 Hemi gets out of MDF mode! Our daughter thought all vehicles were like that. When she was doing her student driving she was telling the instructor something was wrong with their car. It was totally gutless ...lol

I hope the "Hurricane" moniker doesn't describe what the ownership experience will be like.

I guess we'll have to 'trust' they did their homework and see how it goes. :emotions34:
