I had the V6 in my overland. Overall engine and drivetrain performance was good. I had no real complaints. Power And fuel economy was great. I went with the Hemi on this one simply for the extra power (and the sound - nothing beats the roar when you floor it).
I didn't try the v6 with the new 8-speed so I'm unsure how this may have impacted performance. I'm curious to see if it's always looking for top gear given the lower power. Definitely no problems with the old drivetrain.
U-connect is night and day. 2014 system is a huge improvement from the 2012 system. Much more user friendly and performs smoother than the 2012 system. Bluetooth call quality is also improved significantly.
