Inside the Dodge 2.4 Liter Tigershark Engine

2.4 Liter Tigershark Engine

 

Under the hood of the 2014 Dodge Dart, you’ll find one of the most advanced four-cylinder engines on the planet: the 2.4 liter Tigershark™ engine*.

 

Designed to take full advantage of the exclusive MultiAir technology developed with Dodge engineering partner Fiat Powertrain, the Tigershark engine features the second-generation MultiAir 2 system. This next phase in MultiAir science marks even further improvements in fuel economy and exhaust emissions without compromising performance.

 

In a nutshell, MultiAir replaces the traditional mechanical link between the cam lobe and the intake valve with an electro-hydraulic system, allowing more freedom in tuning the engine’s breathing for optimum efficiency under any running condition.

 

Manufactured in a state-of-the-art production facility in Dundee, Michigan, the Tigershark 2.4L engine is built on a high-pressure diecast aluminum block with cast-iron liners and forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods with lightweight cast aluminum pistons designed specifically for efficient operation and provides a 10.1 compression ratio. Compact design provided by an 88 mm bore and 97 mm stroke, while advanced details like diamond-hard piston pin coatings and a two-stage oil pump shave operating losses further improving efficiency. In other words, no feature to small or technology to sophisticated in consideration of providing uncompromising fuel efficiency.

*2.4 liter Tigershark engine comes standard on the 2014 Dart SXT, Rallye, Limited and GT.

    For my part, I like the factory setup for street driving. I am considering a scat-back exhaust just to change the exhaust note.

    The only criticism I could make is the stiffness of the suspension over washboard roads. My solution to that criticism is to avoid washboard roads as much as possible. Enjoy whatever your driving or dump it and get something you do enjoy.

    This is a joke!! I have a 2015 Dodge Dart with the 2.4 tiger shark and it only gets in the 21 to low 22 mikes per gallon and goes through a quart of oil a month had it in the shop and they claimed to have put a new motor in it at 20800 miles but still is the same!! I just want to get to the end of my lease so I can get rid of it and pick up a Subaru. No more big three for me, I work for a supplier of just about all of them and never heard anything bad about Subaru so that’s where I’m going next.

    The Charger SE and SXT using V-6 3.6-liter rated at 292 drive (or 300 with a discretionary double bundle group Rallye smoke) that transmits energy to the rear or all-wheel with 8 programmable speeds. From that point, the ascent of the lineup for the R/T 370 drive V-8 5.7-liter, while the R/T package dirt and SRT392 utilize V-8 6.4-liter that fitting out 485 power.

    is it possible to reconfigure the fuel system to get better gas mileage out of the 2.4.

    Does anyone have oil consumption problems with this engine? I have this engine in my 2016 Fiat 500x and it seems to be consuming oil at a rate of one quart for every 2000 miles. Is this normal? I never had to add oil to any of my cars.

    I just purchased a 2014 Dodge Dart SXT colored Maximum Steel Metallic
    with the 2.4 MultiAir under the hood.
    So far I like this engine! I need to learn more about the engine design as it’s Fiat’s technology! No camshaft intake valve relationship here? Explain this sophistication of an engine design to me? 0W-20 oil recommended usage by FCA here for better gas mileage I presume? What spark plug is recommended for the 2.4 MultiAir? 100K until replacement? I use to enjoy changing my spark plugs in my past Neons!

    My 2.4 multiair gets 38 mpg in the hwy and 34 -32 when I’m in the city but if I drive aggressive it drops dramatically

    There should be a recall on the Dodge Dart 2.4 Rally Tigér shark and the oil use this is just wrong to spend this much money

    If this thing is so great why does it drink oil like a camel getting ready to head out in the desert? Dodge replaced the engine in my daughters 2014 this year. She took it in to the dealer for the new engines oil change and low and behold there was no oil on the dipstick….NONE! So we asked to start a star case on this new engine and with 1500 miles on the oil change it is almost down a full quart! If she wasn’t so upside down due to the poor value of the Dart she would sell it and buy a Kia. Funny part is Dodge says one quart in 2000 miles is normal but my 2015 Ecodiesel uses no oil over the 10,000 mile oil change interval. Neither does our 2015 300S 3.6. I smell a class action headed Dodge’s way over this engine, maybe that is the real reason they killed the Dart?
