LOL, most Australians all chant "give us our V8's!!!!" whenever the local manufacturers talk about discontinuing the V8's from their lineup, then they go and buy the V6 version lol
They seem to like the thought of driving an 8, but don't cough up

Re: V6 or Hemi

The V6 with just 3,500 towing capacity just won't cut it! Sign me up for the Hemi.

Indeed! "Gas" is a lot more expensive here though. It's even worse in europe.

Re: V6 or Hemi

I looked at the MPG for 2009 models. The 4.7 is rated 15/19 and the hemi 14/18. Making me lean towards the Hemi and I usually crack under peer pressure

Re: V6 or Hemi

I get around 20mpg on the highway with my Hemi. 16 here local. All stock with properly inflated tires and regular service. Way better than the V10 Superduty I traded to the Overland that got 10mpg tops.

Re: V6 or Hemi

Mate, it's worth getting the Hemi over the 4.7 I reckon.

So when someone asks you what you drive you can say, "oh, a Hemi Jeep" rather than ,"a V8 Jeep, nah, not the Hemi, yeah, the smaller engine, still a V8 though!". LOLOL

I know it's not in a Jeep - but my truck weighs considerably more and I've gotten 19 MPG on the highway at 75 mph with the VVT Hemi.
