Re: Extended Test Drive V6 Limited

If you are such the bigger man you would just let it go without a response and this would be over. I'm going to ask again to end this hijacking of the thread as this has nothing to do with the OP.

Re: Extended Test Drive V6 Limited

To OP:

I live in CO and the V6 does its job very well. I have been on mountain passes as high as 12000 feet and 7% grades and the power was more than adequate.

Hope you get the vehicle you like and fits your requirements!

Cheers,
-A

Re: Extended Test Drive V6 Limited

That is good to hear that the V6 does fine on CO passes, including high elevation passes.

Re: Extended Test Drive V6 Limited

I saw Tommy Kendall on "Test Drive" this weekend he was driving a Dodge pick up with the V-6 in it. He had no complaints during some pretty spirited driving. I think he quoted 300 horse, and 25 MPG.
I haven't been doing any heavy work so I don't need the V-8,a nd I'll go that way again especially with the Pentastar being much better. He obviously wasn't pulling a trailer before the peanut gallery gets started.

Re: Extended Test Drive V6 Limited

I live in Colorado as well and my 2012 GC Ltd V6 does a great job in the mountains (Vail Pass anyone?) plus steep grades in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

Re: Extended Test Drive V6 Limited

I own a V8, had to go to Ohio on business and rented a V6, while there we bought a lot of stuff, 14 cases of juice, probably around 300lb, lots of other christmas and other stuff and luggage would be at least the same.

V6 was absolutely fine empty on the way down and was equally fine loaded up on the way back, gas mileage was good too, we averaged over 23 travelling at >75mph on the highway and some around the town stuff. I can get close to that in the hemi, but I'm not doing 75mph. we got ~400 miles on 3/4 of a tank.

The V6 is fine, more than adequate for the commute to work. I think bigrboland protests too much.
