  1. Hey David, you forgot to mention that the Promaster City is no longer going to be offered in the U.S. after 2022. So my question is, is it still going to use the 2.4 everywhere else it’s sold, or is the 2.4 finally gone for good? I know you said the Compass is getting a new powertrain soon, probably during 4XE day. It’s probably the Hornet’s powertrains, which isn’t a bad thing. I just want to see a Gladiator 2.0T with a 6 speed manual, but it will probably never happen.

    • Didn’t forget, just leaving it for today 😉 Yes, the 2.4 is gone for good once it’s out of the Compass. I believe they already announced a 2.0 turbo for Compass in the fleet brochure, though that might be a mistake. I’d get a Compass if it had the 2.0 turbo – especially if it had the manual transmission! Hopefully they give it a nice wide ratio. The 2.0T has a wide enough torque band that narrow ratios would be foolish. (I still don’t know why the Dart has such a narrow ratio.)

      • Dart? Or Hornet? I haven’t looked at the gear ratios so I don’t know, but if I had to guess it’s probably to give the Dodge good acceleration times. I doubt a manual is returning to this segment considering Dodge is the sporty brand and the Hornet didn’t even offer a manual transmission. However, the Wrangler/Gladiator have a cult following so to speak, so I’m wondering if the 2.0 could get a 6 speed manual as the 3.6 phases out or will Jeep just tell us to embrace the future.
