Franciscoapg How would you think one could build a motor with .2 of a cylinder? It has four and one-fifth cylinders? Haha. And regarding the smaller displacement engines putting out more power, its all a matter of engineering. The more efficient a motor is made, the more power. The 4.0 is a beast of a motor in regards to reliability, but it is highly outdated in regards to actual design and in regards to the little power it puts out for such high displacement.

The JK's have a smaller motor then the 4.0l. They first had a 3.8 now they have the 3.6

Redsand Efi, 4.0 has more power and better efficiency

TJspeed 1987 to 1990 the YJ had a 4.2 But 91 on they had the 4.0.

Owen_TJ A 4.2 cylinder doesn't exist but older wranglers had a 4.2 liter engine...the 2000 6 cylinder is a 4 liter, though.

It's either a typo, they're dumb, or they did a worthless motor swap.

4.2 Cylinder Engine ???

I just read a classified ad that says the Jeep is a 2000 TJ Jeep Wrangler with a 4.2 cylinder engine.

I have never heard of a 4.2 engine. Is this just a typo?
