Re: New to the V6

Maybe I am just used to a Buick 3800 which also has a very flat torque curve but acceleration is deceptive & have to be careful not to get going too fast without noticing. Most people are used to a torque curve that builds with the revs and it is that increase that gives a sense of accelleration. The Pentastar doesn't.

In many ways it reminds me of an E-Jag (also a DOHC 6). It would barely squeak the tires but surprised a lot of 'vettes in autocrosses. Steering is lighter.
