2014 Limited V6 models have the dual exhaust.
2015 Limited V6 models do not have dual exhaust.

I had one of each.

It also wasn't a true dual exhaust. The header pipe is U that is connected to both sides
of the engine and the exhaust pipes are connected to that.

I don't know if that's what people want, or just what Chrysler thinks people want.
Or perhaps how Jeep meets CAFE standards? Looking at the 2018 stuff where it looks like no v8 will be offered, and a 4 cyl base kind of goes along with that.

SRT underbody shield on other non-SRT Grand Cherokees

Your self even posted a under pic

Basically the Hemi's have true duals until it hits the Suit case muffler where they combine and exit out the twin pipes.

Many replace the Suitcase muffler and go with resonators.

many use an X pipe or H pipe.


here is the V6 with a true Dual to the "suitcase" then single out.

Btw the V8 Dual Exhausts bolt right up to the v6. just have to different rear valance for the tips.

Yeah, what's that all about?

The V6 may have lost an extra exhaust but for 2017 they're getting a cool new badge.

Re: Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

Yeah I suppose it's been a little longer than I thought since I last glanced under my Jeep. It actually is a true dual setup. My bad lol.
So except for base model V6 like the Laredo or maybe Limiteds, the V6 is true dual. Cool. As far up as I can see was separate pipes.

Re: Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

Anything that goes 2 in to 1... even if it then goes back out into 2 is not a true dual exhaust.

No matter how much you want it to be.

Re: Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

The decision fca took on removing the 2nd exhaust on the v6 limited seems simialr to the decision they decided to remove the hemi option on 4x2 overlands. Seems now you can only get it on a 4x4 per jeep.com

Took a look and it seems to be the case on all trims, the 5.7L is 4x4 only on Limited, Overland and Summit.

Re: Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

Im still bothered by the fact that a 47K Limited Anniversary edition has 1 freakin pipe. Yes I know it doesn't affect performance or anything, but for pure aesthetic purpose...Dual Exhaust looks much nicer than single.

I guess they wanted the make the duals premium for overland and Summit on the V6. The Limited Anniversary with Lux package is at the same price as a overland so that kinda sucks they couldn't at least put the duals on the 75th.

Where does it go to one pipe? Except for the suitcase which btw no clue what the pipes do inside there, it is for sure two pipes front all the way to the back. And also for what it's worth exhaust systems can be true dual but still have an H pipe or an x pipe.

Re: Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

So if the dual exhaust makes no difference why is it that the 2015 - 2016 Overlands and Summit still come with it on the V-6? IMO the dual exhaust looks a lot better then the single. Or maybe now it's just a marketing gimmick to get you to move up to one of those two models. Also the Limited did away with the 10 speaker stereo system. So it looks like my next Jeep will be an Overland!

Yup, that's to balance the system. Mine is a perfect example
