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.

    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.
