Re: V-6 or V-8, regrets?

Well I'm with the most of you, I wished I bought the Hemi....but...does it make sense to drive a V8 in traffic all the time? I bought the V6, added a cold air intake, magnaflow catback and now finally the Diablo trinity programmer chip. I also agree my complaint always was the 5 speed, never liked it much. I used to have a 2008 Dodge Nitro RT with the 5 speed and that thing really moved, the gearing was much different than the Grand Cherokee's. That is why I'm disappointed with the 5 speed in the V6 Grand Cherokee. Hopefully the Diablo Trinity helps since I can finally change the shift points :-)

Something to consider here is the fact that: 2014 V6 0-60 = 2011 - 2013 V8 0-60 . Unless you tow I think you will be happy with V6.

Re: V-6 or V-8, regrets?

I averaged 24.5 mpg using E10 this past weekend on my round trip to central PA. Most of that was at 77 mph. I had not bothered to remove my roof racks.
