Top 4 big crossovers with small engines

Downsizing has become a general trend and has also affected crossovers. This was largely due to the introduction of electrical hybridization. You can still get a car with an eight-cylinder engine – the epitome of power and a roaring sound, but turbocharged or supercharged four-cylinder engines are becoming more popular, which can quite compete with the six-cylinder counterparts.

These downsized engines have become the standard in today’s compact crossovers, but are now becoming popular in larger vehicles that typically have a six-cylinder engine as their base. Whether this will be the end of eight cylinders is unknown, but more and more large crossovers are now coming with small engines.

The hybrid version has a combined output of 400 horsepower.

The new generation Wrangler has been waiting for a very long time, and not everyone was satisfied with it. Largely because the car was supposed to get a six-cylinder engine, but it was replaced by a four-cylinder turbocharged in the company with an electric one. Nevertheless, the reviews say that the car is not only surprisingly economical, but also behaves perfectly off-road.

Combined, they produce 398 horsepower, making the Range Rover Sport hybrid more powerful than the diesel and six-cylinder.
