Re: Need advice from experienced jeep owners
I would say don't get the V6, you will be disappointed.
My brother had a WK V6 and he regretted not getting the Hemi every time he drove it. I know the new pentastar is different and has more power but the WK2 is still a big heavy beast.
I just bought a 2012 hemi and I love it. Power is limitless and it has enough of a tow rating to pull what I need. However, I would have purchased the diesel if I could afford it.
I am not very experienced with the WK2 yet but I have towed before (towed a pop up trailer with my wrangler unlimited through the mountains) and more power is definitely better. I am not a fan of the V6 for these vehicles, especially if you plan on doing some towing.
Long story short: Ecodiesel, then Hemi, then Pentastar.
Quick edit: my commute is 70 miles per day 5 days a week.
