Jeep Hurricane Concept, 2005. A twin-engined prototype with 4-wheel steering and 37inch tyre for extreme off-road situations. One feature of the Hurricane’s engine system is the ability to use different sets of cylinders for different driving conditions. Each engine contains eight cylinders, but the multi-displacement system can use all, half, or none of the cylinders of each engine. For example, all sixteen cylinders can be utilized for rough terrain, twelve can be used for charging along off-road trails, eight can be used for city driving, and four can be used for highway conditions. This feature can be manipulated manually or done automatically
