What a load of crap.
And it's pretty rare that I dump on someone.

The days of a V6 being considered 'second class' are long over.
My V6 puts out as much HP and torque as a V8 did a few years ago.
So I guess the "Hemi" V8 from a few years ago that only put out 300hp was a 'rental/stripper' engine and only a large block V8 from Chevy was worthy of 'real' men/cars.

As for single vs dual exhaust on a V6...
Why bother with dual exhaust?
That's like having a dual exhaust on a 4 cylinder.

My Legacy 3.6R had a true dual exhaust from the engine back. If they offered a true dual exhaust on the Pentastar V6 then I would be all for it, but a simple Y-pipe at the rear axle split to offer 2 pipes at the bumper is a waste of time/money.

Re: Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

Oh my wow, why do you get so butt burt about those comments of the v6? People are ignorant. I really dont care dual or single. I have a dual. Whether its a y or true duel i can really gvie to $*%/s about it.

I read somewhere here on fhis forum that all v6 now come with the single as standard. Dont know what year that changed but seen almost every new laredo with single. I maybe have seen a dual back when i was shopping but i can be mistaken. Also, read currently or after this change All hemis come with dual standard. Now that all may change depending on trims for the six bangers.

Someone please correct me if im wrong.

I know you weren't asking me that question, but it's because what he said about V6 models being stripper or rental cars. That's a ridiculous statement and you know it. The V6 does I would say 90% of what the antique V8 Hemi does, while doing other things much better. It handles much better, brakes shorter distance, weighs less, and gets better fuel economy, oh and costs less. Listen, I'm all for lots of HP and big engines, but having been a 2014 Summit V8 owner, it's nice, but not all that the guys on this forum make it out to be. Still no regrets going to my rental edition V6 High Altitude

This is true. It's funny there were a lot of things Chevy dropped in the Corvette going through the years in the C6 model...probably all cars did something similar, but I remember my '06 Z06 had a pull down handle for the rear hatch. My buddies 08 did not. They literally removed a small plastic handle, but I liked it as you didn't have to pull down and get finger prints on the paint

Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

Apparently some countries had the dual exhaust for the v6's. Australia was not one of them. South Africa was one that were fortunate.

My pops and I had this very discussion - the V6 puts out more horsepower and also more torque I believe than the 5.0L V8 in his Bronco, while getting far better gas mileage to boot.

That said - I've had 2 V6 WK2's and now the V8. While I love the V8, and would have a hard time going back go a V6, there was nothing "wrong" with the V6. The 2012 I had with the 5 speed was a dog, but can't blame that on the engine. The 2014 with the 8 speed I had was plenty for the average driver. There are far, far more V6 Jeeps on the lots here in VA than there are V8's, in ALL trim levels.

Don't Overland and Summit V6's still come with dual exhaust?

Yes they do. It was only removed on the V6 Limited models, which IMO is a really dumb penny pinching move considering CUVs that cost under 30k have them...

2014 and 2015 models with the V6 on Limited and up trim levels have true dual exhaust, just like the V8 from the engine on back.

Perhaps it has something to do with the redesign of the pentastar v6 for 2016? We know they changed the valve timing and the intake, it's not unreasonable that in changing the motor they decided to change the exhaust as well.

That might not be too far off. In 2013 and this year, I had a hell of a time finding a non-SRT V8. Some dealers never even had one in stock.

I don't know if that's what people want, or just what Chrysler thinks people want.
