I had a V6 in a 1992 Chevy Beretta with a 5 speed manual. That thing was a rocket. Now, today's American V6's get more HP for sure, but they still aren't in line with European ones.
I'm not sure how you can say they are not in line with the European ones. Most of the American V6 engines are European. The one in the jeep is from Fiat. On top of that, most of the American V6 engines match or surpass most European and Japanese ones.

This is funny. The only reason they make more power is because they either turbo or supercharge. Before they did that, the top I6 engine in the BMW was 255hp. Mercedes is the same platform as the jeep and the engine is marginally more powerful. It requires premium fuel though. If the jeep was tuned for premium, it would just be at the power level of the Challenger. Which is more than the Mercedes V6. The best parts is that both of those are high end mall vehicles. More like a Murano or Edge than a 4Runner. So you can hang tough to your V8,but forced induction and smaller displacement is the future. Just a small example, a tuned Ecoboost V6 can run high 12's in the 1/4 mile. That in a crew cab F150. Imagine what it does in an Edge or an Explorer. Bye bye SRT. Time to get with the times. Don't worry. It took me a bit to get over the loss of the V8

Re: Why did Jeep go back to single exhaust?

The x5 has never had an I6 bigger than 3.0 liters and the ML has had a 3.5 liter V6. Pretty much all american V6's that make more power than the competition have displaced more than them.

I'm thinking more along the lines of Merc or BMW. Sure the American L4's & V6's are improved over the 80's and 90's, but I still think those good European ones are far better in terms of quality and HP (though I'm not going to conduct a study or anything).

If many American V6's are European built or designed, I could see where you're coming from.

It's Jeep's shorthand and they're sticking with it.
I love my old jeep its a 1990s GC but I bought v8 because the v6 is haram. Every rental has been a v6, their is no good news about haram v6 it just make noise eat the petrol and not go fast. I rented and it was v6 auto, was nice place to sit but oh Allah was the gearbox a dirty son of ape and pig. I put foot down and it change gears like was vin disel in fast and furious but it got no faster. Only kuffars would buy a v6 in a top spec jeep then try to say v6 is good.

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.
at least now woman can see man who not as successful because of single exhaust on v6

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
My uncle Tariq had prize winning camel. his camel raced successfully in the 1 hump class. his camel very successful but my camel had not won a race but had two humps. My harem had 5 woman his harem only was 2. Haram v6 is like uncle Tariqs camel. Smaller and lighter and winner of races but my harem was bigger because I have v8
