V8 owners are just unintelligent lemmings heading towards a cliff anyways...we are incapable of showing passion.

Re: Advice needed.. V6 or V8?

Fact is, not many hemi owners get on here and piss and moan about getting left in the dust by the guy in the JGC with two polished chrome exhaust tips...LOL For the measly 2 mpg difference I want all the power and muscle I can get. There are a lot of buy remorse V6 owners out there..Now with the issues coming down the pike with the pentagram V6 buy beware.... If you can afford a JGC, you can afford the extra 20.00 bucks a week to fill it.. That statement is one of most absurd excuses I have ever heard.. Typically from a guy who bought a V6 off the lot....

Re: Advice needed.. V6 or V8?

Sorry, it's not "what I can afford" but what I choose to spend my money on. EPA rates the 5.7L V8 at 15mpg combined and the 3.6L V6 at 19 combined, a 27% leap in efficiency. Regards to power the V8 is only 17% more power, yet 58% more displacement.

I could queue up some pictures of a slender athletic gal standing next to a chubby eating a doughnut, but you get the idea.

The reason for all this is that the Pentastar is the most advanced engine that Chrysler has ever manufactured. One of Ward's ten best engines two years in a row. Next year it will be in 13 vehicles.

Also I'm not too keen on that variable displacement thing on the V8. That was a disaster for GM when they played with it back in the 80's.
