It doesn't matter how much better geared the '14 v6 is it does make up for 70 HP and 130 ft lbs in a vehicle that weighs the same. If you think otherwise line it up and video tape it. The v6 is a great motor paired with a great tranny no doubt but it just isn't as fast.
Nobody does 0-60 runs in their daily commute. We're talking about how the Jeep feels driving around day to day.
I don't have a 2011 V8, mine's a 6. All I can tell you my neighbor had a 2011 V6...he traded it on a 2012 V8 because the 2011 was too lethargic. He just traded the 2012 V8 in on a 2014 V6 with the 8 speed. When I asked him if he missed the V8 he said the 2014 6 felt better around town than his 2012 V8, and that this Jeep was finally the Jeep he wanted. Remember...this guy got killed trading the 2011 6 in because of the motor.
