2012 Scion FR-S Five Axis Concept
The flat-4 engine is up front, and is shared with Subaru. The engine,  dubbed D4-S, will sport two injectors per cylinder, just like on some  Lexus products. One will inject directly in the combustion chamber,  while the other will spray into the intake runner, above the valve, just  like in the pre-direct injection days.

Best handling Jeep ever
The 420-bhp 6.1-liter V-8 is gone, replaced by a larger and more  powerful 465-bhp 6.4-liter Hemi V-8. There is permanent 4-wheel drive  (Quadra-Trac, in Jeep speak), a 5-speed automatic, and a tow rating of  5000 lb. If you’re really in a hurry while trailering those jet skis, Jeep  says the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 pulls 0.90g on the skidpad.
