AMC built the first 2.5L engine in 1984 in the USA. It was used in the Wrangler and other Jeep automobiles. The most popular were the YJ and TJ vehicles. As a straight four-cylinder block, the OHV design did not limit the output during usage. Even though Chrysler took over production, the Jeep Wrangler 2.5L engine can still be found in used condition.

150 CID Wrangler Motor
The 2.5-liter was a strong 4-cylinder. It had compress almost like a V6. The first models were outputting around 9:1 ratios while later builds were updated with 9:2. The cubic inch displacement remained at 150 for all units produced. Before the PowerTech was standard inside of a Jeep, drivers loved the 2.5-liter.
The VIN number helps to establish what version of the block can be ordered. The original stock utilized a carburetor system. This was changed to a throttle body type and then later to electronic fuel injection. This had little impact on the performance of the AMC 150 motor.
The cast iron block performed the best at around 5000 RPM. The hydraulic lifters did a good job of not limiting the power. In general, the Jeep Wrangler engine achieved around 125 horsepower. This was regarded as quite an achievement for a straight 4-cylinder.
