The Tigershark engine is exclusive to the FIAT Chrysler brand. It first arrived in the 2013 model year, and now Seattle drivers can enjoy the Tigershark Multiair Engine on the FIAT 500X. Learn more about this engine here at FIAT of Tacoma.

2.4L Tigershark Engine Specs

The 2.4L Tigershark engine – found on the 2018 FIAT 500X – delivers 180 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque. This 4-cyl engine gets the job done – whether you’re driving to the Tacoma Dome, or simply driving to Olympia. With advanced combustion control, high efficiency, and reduced exhaust emissions, the 2.4L Tigershark Engine on the 2018 FIAT 500X makes this SUV the most powerful one in the FIAT lineup.

FIAT 500X Performance Specs

Two features – other than the massive Tigershark Engine, of course – stand out when it comes to the FIAT 500X’s performance capabilities. First, an available intelligent AWD system ensures maximum traction on the occasionally wet surfaces of Lakewood streets. In addition, the intelligent AWD system can aid aggressive, dynamic driving. Second, 500X also offers a Dynamic Selector Traction Control System that includes three driving modes: Sport, Auto, and Traction+ mode.

The performance specs on the FIAT 500X are just one reason why the FIAT 500X stacks up favorably against the Volkswagen Beetle and the Subaru Impreza Sport, and further contradistinguish the FIAT 500X from the well-regarded FIAT 500L.
