When did they start letting twelve year olds drive? Come on guys, grow up.

The Hemi is great, sure, but it's not the most practical option for everyone. Not all can afford the extra on the original purchase price and ongoing running costs, and not all need the additional power. I drive the V6 and it is more than sufficient for my needs. After all, it's a 4WD not a race car.

There are plenty of V6 vs V8 threads; go argue there.

I didn't start, or even intend to to start the V6/V8 war again. It's played out. I defended myself against jerkeylips's out-of-nowhere name calling. Then Yadkin had to jump in again with his BS. Just sayin.....

Re: Extended Test Drive V6 Limited

You should really consider waiting for the upcoming 8-speed transmission if you decide to go with the V6. I think it will really help with the performance of that engine.

You were told to stop acting like a twelve year-old, but you just can't help yourself. Tell us again how big your "package" is, and how much of a man a bigger engine makes you and your little buddy.

Talk about self-pwnage.

It's you that can't help yourself man-boy. I almost feel sorry for you that you continually need to argue with me to get some attention. I was done with you weeks ago. You must miss me, or anyone that pays you any attention for that matter. It's sad. Sorry, but you'll have to find someone else to fill that need of yours.

And it's pretty big....

I don't think I would feel comfortable with the first release of the JGC with a new transmission. I know the transmission has been out in other vehicles, but automobile components are so complicated and interconnected that there may be some unforseen problems putting that tranny into the JGC. Also, from the spy photos I have seen, I am not a fan of the new front end if the photos show the actual 2014 release. I think the rear end is not as nice as the current model as well.

Re: Extended Test Drive V6 Limited

Eric,

The 8 speed is in the 2013 Ram and others as well. Even if you have a problem, you still have the warranty on the vehicle.

Please see my response to jerkylips. It applies to you as well.

Wow! I must have really made an impact in the lives of some you V8-hating clowns. Who knew??? Waiting for Smooth1 to pile on next.

I was about to buy a '13 when I found this site. I decided to wait for the '14 and the 8 speed tranny.

Please, let's not talk about possible problems. My last Jeep was an '07 Liberty Limited which was in the shop six times in four years ... each time for an oil change only. That's what I'm looking for now.
