Fiat's MultiAir technology is quite the breakthrough, even though few stories point out just how remarkable this technology really is. Let's see here: there's a 20 to 30 percent increase in fuel economy on top of a 10 percent increase in power and no downsides like turbo lag, huge cost increases or insanely expensive after-treatments. Sounds like a breakthrough worthy of recognition to us. We're geeked to find out that the MultiAir technology will make its way over to Chrysler engines, too.

The latest information from Fiat suggests that we can expect MultiAir to be available on four-cylinder Chrysler powerplants beginning in 2011. MutliAir will be featured in Chrysler's "World" engines, including the 2.0 and 2.4-liter powerplants. By applying MultiAir to the 2.4-liter engine found in the Sebring, Fiat claims that horsepower would jump from 173 hp to 190 hp while at the same time increasing efficiency by 25 percent and low-end torque up to 15 percent. With gains across the board, MultiAir looks like a no-compromise solution for the future. With all the benefits of MultiAir, Fiat's bold claim that all automakers will adopt its technology sounds logical, but still not probable.
