One of our readers recently emailed us and passed along some information about the engine selections coming in the all-new 2007 Wranglers. Here's what he has to say:

The '07 Wrangler will NOT use the 3.7L V-6 engine. Jeep understands the great value when owners mention that "it has a 4.0L in it."

The engine slated for the next generation Wrangler will be a modified version of the 3.7L V-6...it's displacement will be increased to 4.0L using more stroke (increased torque) and slightly larger pistons.

DCX has promised over $300 million to upgrade the engine plant in Trenton, MI. Over $155 million of this money will be used to prepare the plant to build the new 4.0L V-6 engine.
