Next Charger TBi Will Be Powered by an Alfa Engine

In a bit of unexpected news, Chrysler unveiled the 2011 Dodge Charger TBi (stands for Turbocharged Boosted Induction), and it will be powered by a four-cylinder turbocharged engine from Alfa Romeo. The engine is the 1.75-liter engine that's found on a variety of Alfa models, including the Giulietta and 159, as well as the upcoming 4C sports coupe. It'll deliver an output of 225-horsepower and a peak torque of 250 lb-ft.

The Chrysler Ground said that the gasoline engine will match and outperform the 3.0-liter V6 we're all used to, while at the same time it'll be more fuel efficient. The new powerplant will be matched exclusively to a new automatic "TCT" twin dry clutch transmission with eight gears. The new Charger TBi will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 8.1 seconds, but we'll have to wait for more details to be released.
