I don't think so, I think it's just the V8 that gets the bigger brakes. Interestingly enough though, I think I read that the V6 model still brakes in a shorter distance. Like I said, the V8 is too fat

But isn't the torque 130 lb. ft. more on the Hemi V8 over the V6? That makes a huge difference in seat of the pants driving.

Yeah that sounds about right. I don't know what the torque of the V6 is, but I think the V8 is 390. It's a big difference, but IMO it's surprisingly not a huge seat of the pants difference for whatever reason.

Re: For those who drive a Hemi 5.7

I think the seats off the pants logic is subjective. Maybe it's buyers remorse of the v6 owners. The difference from the hemi and pentestar is night and day...

Torque on the V6 is 260. That being said, it doesn't do a half bad job at moving a big vehicle. I've had 2 of them.

Kinda funny because I was the opposite. I had V8 buyers remorse. Because the fact that the V6 and V8 actually aren't night and day difference is what has me in the V6 now. I think the night and day difference should only be reserved for SRT vs V6/V8. Then again, what do I know, Ive only owned all of them

Re: For those who drive a Hemi 5.7

I cannot for the life of me imagine how anyone could say that there is not a significant "seat-of-the-pants" difference between the hemi and the penta. It boggles my mind actually. The penta is a fine engine for sure. But to say there is little difference between the two is to be disingenuous.

I think people are always going to tend to support the one they own I think its just human nature and everyone is going to likely do it to some degree. to get completely impartial views you would need to bring in people from the outside that don't own or have any interest in either one of them to eliminate any bias. Just my opinion

Re: For those who drive a Hemi 5.7

As for someone that has a 2006 Durango with the 5 speed I am planning on moving to the 2017 HA V6 with 8 speed.

I think for the people in my case moving to a V8 with a 5 speed to a V6 with the 8 the difference will not be as significant as some of you that compare the V6/V8 w/8 speed.

There are a lot of people on this board that say you will have to hammer the gas more to compensate for the lack of V8 and your MPG will be the same as the V8 model. In real world driving though all the reviews I have seen from users is 20mpg+ on average. So there is definitely a gain 4-5 MPG for the V6 between the two.

Right now i average about 12-13 with my Durango. If i can get 20+ with the V6 thats a huge increase for me.

Yeah thats pretty accurate. Having my V6 for about 1500 miles and the outside temps are starting to warm a bit I'm beginning to see the real difference between my V8 Summit and my V6 HA. I log all my fillups with my fuelly app which I love.
I can only imagine going from a 5spd Durango to an 8spd Grand Cherokee V6 or V8 is going to feel amazing compared to that Durango.

I've never averaged 20+ with my V6 on the 8 speed unless I'm out on a road trip, in which case I've been able to squeeze 24 out of it. I usually average between 17 and 19, with it dropping on the weekends. My commute to work is mostly highway on the HOT lanes, with the beginning and end being city driving (house to the highway, and highway to my building). Put snow on the ground and that's been known to drop to 15-16.
