2020 Turbo Engine Question (Grade)

In your opinion, how is the engine? I ask because I was looking at the limited or the trail hawk and saw it came with a turbo engine with I think 177hp. I have a commute that I need to go over a small grade daily. I see cars struggle all the time going up but in my current Mazda cx5 with 227 HP I have no problems. Curious what you think about this engine going up a grade daily? Thanks!

Hp is HP 177hp. 227 is more Hp. Unless the weight of the vehicles vary that much the only thing else will be trans and its gear splits.

all things being somewhat equal the 227 wins up the grade over the new 177hp. Sure a modern 4 banger turbo is only making 177hp? must be like a 1.5 liter. since 2.0s in past decades made in the 300+- range stock.

If we're talking Trailhawk edition it has 1956 cc, 170 hp and 350 Nm of torque which is what you feel when stepping on the gas, towing or climbing. HP gives you an ideea of how fast it can go actually, not exactly how hard it can pull. Of course, they come in a close relation, can't have a very big difference between the two. Trailhawk has a strong and tested diesel engine, used on working vans with no problem at all. It climbs steep hills with tight curves, loaded with people and luggage, AC at maximum like it's nothing. I really like the feeling it gives when climbing, torque is needed and it delivers. It's over 15 years since I take that road to visit my parents, about 200 km away, and with other cars (manual transmission) I had to be careful not to kill the engine on specific portions as big trucks always follow behind and open the way in front of you. I go almost all the time 80km/h though the limit is 50, excepting very tight and declined curves. It is also surprisingly more stable than sedans I drove, due to it's 4x4 integrated systems. If we're talking the same engine, it comes with ZF 9 speed transmission and it pairs great. My model is the EU version, 2015. I wouldn't buy smaller engine versions or 2x4, it's not a light car, mine has 1700 kg empty, it needs some power to be OK.
