 Engine Alliance GP7200 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Engine Alliance GP7200 is a new turbofan jet engine that will incorporate state-of-the-art advanced technologies of proven wide-body products from the world's No.1 and No.3 aero-engine manufacturers: GE Aircraft Engines and Pratt and Whitney.
The competing Trent 900, from Rolls-Royce was named as the lead engine for the then-named A3XX in 1996 and was initially selected by almost all A380 customers.
Ground testing of the engine began in April 2004, and is expected to join the A380 flight test programme the following year.

 Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance, or GEMA, is a manufacturing arm of Global Engine Alliance LLC, which is a joint venture of DaimlerChrysler, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, and Hyundai Motor Company for developing a line of shared engines.
Chrysler intends to use the 2.0 L 150 hp GEMA engine as the base engine, in the United States, in its new Caliber, which is a replacement for the Neon (on September 20, 2005, Chrysler announced it was ending production of the Neon).
The larger 2.4 L 170 hp GEMA variant will probably also become the base engine in the next-generation of the Stratus/Sebring, since the current generation Stratus and Sebring use an existing 2.4 L displacement engine as their base engine offering.
