How smooth are the shift points with the V8/8sp? I know it's probably much to ask from a test drive, but did it hunt for gears much?

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

I think the v6 is also in the 7's with the new 8 speed

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

Yeah, that actually isn't all that impressive. I was really hoping to see low 7s or better yet high 6s.

No. It does show the 2013 V6 at 7.7 seconds though and the 2013 5.7 V8 at 6.2 seconds. I can't find anything about the 2014s with the new transmission.

If the 2014 CRD can't do better than 7.7 seconds I will be very disappointed. I'm hoping that was driver error and I'm looking forward to hearing more numbers/trials.

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

I dont understand why people have such high expectations for diesels for off the line accelerations. Gas always out performs diesel in off line accelerations. Diesel is all about maintaining speed with good torque which gas can get up to speed and rev faster.

A gas engine will usually be faster than a diesel at the expense of fuel of course.

Im willing to bet the 2014 v6 will have a very low 7 0-60 time or maybe a high 6.

If you look at the v6 gas and diesel audi q7. where both engines have similar numbers to the Jeep, the Gas is significantly faster than the TDI. Did you guys think Jeep magically did something Audi could not do?

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

Here are the Audi Numbers:

<table class="specs-table"><thead><tr><th colspan="4">3.0 TFSIŽ Specs</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td class="specs-title">Horsepower</td> <td class="specs-content" colspan="3"> 280 hp @ 4920 RPM </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="small_divider" colspan="4">
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="specs-title">Torque</td> <td class="specs-content" colspan="3"> 295 lb-ft @ 2250 RPM </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="small_divider" colspan="4">
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="specs-title">0-60 mph</td> <td class="specs-content" colspan="3"> 7.7 sec. </td></tr></tbody></table>

<table class="specs-table"><thead><tr><th colspan="4">3.0 TDIŽ Specs</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td class="specs-title">Horsepower</td> <td class="specs-content" colspan="3"> 240 @ 3750 RPM </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="small_divider" colspan="4">
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="specs-title">Torque</td> <td class="specs-content" colspan="3"> 406 lb-ft @ 1750 RPM </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="small_divider" colspan="4">
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="specs-title">0-60 mph</td> <td class="specs-content" colspan="3"> 8.5 sec. </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="small_divider" colspan="4">
</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="specs-title">Fuel Estimates</td> <td class="specs-content" colspan="3"> 19/28 mpg </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="small_divider" colspan="4">
</td></tr></tbody></table>

There are about similar numbers to theJeep pentastar and CRD.

You do have to give jeep props for getting pretty much the same power from a NA v6 versus the Audis super charged v6 gas.

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

I get that... However, I want my cake too. I expected the CRD to turn out numbers at least comparable in 0-60 times as the V6 (in my dreams it would be a good half second faster). I was not and am not expecting V8 times... but I was and am expecting it to AT LEAST match the V6 performance in 0-60.

At 7.7 seconds it will NOT beat or even match the V6 with the new transmission.

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

I wouldn't expect the v6 0-60 to be less than 8 seconds, and v8 not less than 7 seconds.
