The WK weighs around 4,600 lbs. (http://jeephorizons.com/news/2005gc_specs.html). Way more than an Altima which is around 3,100 lbs. The Infinity FX35 weighs closer at 4,100 though.The 3.7 is a slug compared to the 4.7 and it works so hard moving the weight, it uses almost as much gas and will never last as long. If you want to tow anything, the 3.7 is almost dangerously underpowered.

I have a 2007 300 with the 3.5 V6. It moves really good. This is a really nice engine but I don't like that it has a timing belt instead of a chain. I cannot understand the use of timing belts that cost mucho bucks to replace when a chain almost never has to be replaced.
