There are a few reviews out there for the diesel JGC. Most have the diesel at 7.8 0-60. Car and driver did an article on the gas v6 today and they claim 7.5 0-60. Still waiting on a review for the hemi with the 8 speed...

Re: 2014 V8 is weak?

Here's another source with 0-60 times for diesel, v6 and v8.

Also notice the quarter mile time for the hemi vs the diesel (and v6). The hemi starts to pull really well once it gets its fat ass moving...

Edit: sorry link here: http://www.autorooster.com/0-60-time...rand-cherokee/

That's the only link i have found with 0-60 times for the v8. I hope we see a real review done by one of big magazines. Don't know how credible autorooster is and where they got those numbers but they sound about right. We know the older 5.7's didn't do 0-60 in under 7 like they claim on this site. It was more like mid to high 7's.

That one is not accurate at all they might as well pulled numbers out of the air. You can look at the older test on Car and Driver though for the V8 5spd and the new V6 is quicker all around. The only edge was that the V8 is a tenth quicker to 100. So all of those Hemi sh*t talkers about the V6 being weak, you can't talk anymore unless you have the '14. From 5-60, the V6 was 3 tenths quicker. That's at least a couple of car lengths if you try to challenge one. I know its a 5,000 lb. Suv and not a racer, but when US V6 owners claimed that we thought the '14 was plenty quick for us, we always heard things about Hemi envy.

It seems the 0-60 times for the Jeep GC vary greatly depending on what source you read. I have seen anything from 6.9 to 8.9 sec 0-60 for the 5.7L, that is 2 seconds apart which is a world of difference.

I too have seen the 6.9 time for the 2014 5.7L. I can't remember where, but it might have been in the thetruthaboutcars.com video review. Although their review vehicle was a v6 summit.

John I want to start off by saying that the v6 is a very good engine, with very good power output (enough to rival some of the v8's of recent history). A stumbling block on the v6 for me is no quadra drive available.

You are absolutely right on this, most 0-60 times may as well be pulled out of the air (including Car and Driver). Particularly for the purpose of a relative comparison of one vehicle vs another. There are just so many variables that significantly affect the times - temperature, track, wind, altitude, to name a few (sure some sources try to "correct" for these variables, but this guesstimation is just another source of error).

And then there is the variability of different drivers, variability between two different vehicles of the exact same model and type due to miles on the clock, manufacturing variance, fuel type, which settings were selected (for example, sport mode, etc).

The closest way to give a true relative comparison is for the vehicles in question to be lined up on the same day on the same track. But then again, this is a 4x4 not a hot rod so I'd rather be off the bitumen in my Jeep which is the number one reason to buy for me...

I guess you are referring to the 2009/10 model they are giving a 6.8 for. However, remember that this was the revised hemi with more power than the previous years (2006-08) which did have the mid 7 times as you say. So this all still looks consistent to me.

Re: 2014 V8 is weak?

Here is what matters to me. I test drove a 14 Hemi and a 14 V6 back to back. The salesman let me beat on both of them on and off the highway, since I have bought 5 vehicles from them since 99. The Hemi put a smile on my face, the V6 didn't. I now have a Hemi Overland that I ordered the way I wanted it. It makes me smile. Especially in "Sport" mode.

No, i was referring to the "older" 11-13' WK2's. The 5.7's with the 5 speed are listed as 6.9 0-60mph. I haven't seen these numbers in any real review for those models.
