Morrison said in the interview that the V8s are dead in performance Jeeps, and there are no clear plans on how to proceed with the Trackhawk nameplate. Thus, the focus is instead on the expansion of the 4xe nameplate, however, he did not confirm which gasoline engine will receive hybridization in the Wagoneer. It is being speculated that the 2.0-liter inline-4 used by the current crop of 4xe Jeeps may be a little small so Jeep could instead utilize its new turbocharged inline-6.
