V6 vs HEMI noise level

What about noise level? Is HEMI much louder? Googling seems to indicate that past models with HEMI (GC and other Chrysler cars) suffered from "ticking" sound. I have really good hearing and something like this can drive me nuts in the long term.

Anyone knows where I can find 0-60 numbers for both engines?

Re: V6 vs HEMI noise level

I hear no ticking on mine. Plus the cabin blocks out a alot of noise vs. last years model. Not saying it isnt an issue, it just isnt one with me, hope this helps.

Re: V6 vs HEMI noise level

You can't hear much of the hemi on the wk2 due to the noise insulation in the cabin. It's kind of a shame, really, because it's a sweet sounding engine.

The hemi is a lazy engine; it likes to hang out around 1700 rpms because it doesn't have to work very hard to move this vehicle. In that range, it's not making much noise. The 3.6L, being less powerful, has to work harder and thus makes noise levels comparable to the hemi. The tones are different, but the decibels are similar.

Re: V6 vs HEMI noise level

On the V6 I test drove I noticed a growl to it that was really surprising and cool. I have yet to drive the V8 but plan to this weekend.

I'm curious if the new V6 will somehow be more reliable then the V8, or vice versa?

Re: V6 vs HEMI noise level

The V6 sort of whines while the Hemi growls!

Neither is really loud inside of the Jeep.

From Motor Trend "Round 1 and Round 2" road tests:

0-60
V6 8.4 seconds
Hemi 7.3 seconds

About that 7.3 number....

1. I wonder if they turned on Tow/Haul when testing. That will improve the 0-60, I think, by altering shift points to allow for more RPMs before shifing

2. I wonder if this vehicle was built before the shudder TSB went in. I think the upgraded software released for this TSB may improve acceleration rates.

Re: V6 vs HEMI noise level

Mine reads 140. I just haven't pointed the needle at that number yet.
