Pretty sure it's just due to how differenet Latin American countries say it.

Personally i think the 'nuevo' should come before the noun as I believe that it'd be common to get a brand new motor, not just one that's new to the owner (so maybe a second hand motor?!)

Like you, I said "el coche tiene nuevo motor" - Duo marked it wrong. ¿Por qué?
