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.

    Engines will only get you so far. Driving dynamics, car feel, product quality, design cues, and overall perception of the vehicle add to the decision making process. Unfortunately many of these are not in favor of the Dodge Dart.

      I don’t know what the F___ u have been smoking !!! But I am sure if you knew anything about this automobile and it’s makeup, from it’s European platform and European handling and it’s above average quality build from the inside to the outside for it’s size class and price tag , you would be humming a different tune. Be for you talk about it. Read about it. And you won’t sound like an idiot who likes to hear himself talk.

  • James

    the 1.4 has a turbo and gets better torque than this engine. Add turbo and show those ecoboost punks who is boss. Shout-out to my main man Sergio!
