Called “Blue Energy,” the new 2.8L SOHC ISF engine now features a more efficient intercooler/turbocharger as well as an upgraded exhaust-gas recirculation system responsible for burning fuel. Other than that, this engine is very environmentally-friendly thanks to diesel and particle oxidizing catalyst (DOC & POC) that convert CO and harmful gases into CO2 and water.
