When the Chrysler Aspen Hybrid arrives in showrooms next year, it will offer something you'd never find in a Prius or Honda Insight-a HEMI.

The Aspen Hybrid's gas-electric powertrain will be based around a battery-augmented HEMI engine, Chrysler announced today. The 5.7-liter HEMI will be mated to a new two-mode hybrid system being developed with General Motors and the BMW Group. The system is known as a "two-mode" setup because it will offer two transmission modes that will optimize fuel economy for city driving and for highway driving.
