Why
 
Why are there so many V6 engine from Chrysler?

The JK has a 3.8 from the pacifica. Everyone i have talked to says it sucks compared to the 3.7 V6.

The Liberty, WK and the Commander(that thing must be a dog) all have the 3.7 V6

The cars all have the 3.5 V6.

I can understand the smaller 3.5 for the cars, But Why the 3.8 in the JK and not the 3.7?

Just something i have always wondered when ti came to the unfortunate demise of the 4.0 (i still dont get why they did that).

Considering my WK is a 3.7 it's not too bad. I had a 3.5 06 altima that used to move. I went thru tires like crazy. But even the FX35 infinity is a V6 and that thing moves. I don't know why the jeep V6 isn't as fast.

Maybe you 3.7 v6 guys can chime in here.
(take no offense)

Driving the 3.7 for the first time w/o every driving a v8 wk its really not that bad.

To me, driving the 3.7 vs my 4.7 the 3.7 is a dog and does not want to move out of its own way.

But, now that i know i will never like a 3.7 since i have a 4.7, How do i convince my finace that she should get a 4.7 and not a 3.7 when she goes to buy a WK, but i keep getting the "i dont need a V8" line. The other thing is she thinks it will be better on gas but it really isnt cause it has to work more.

I think that Mercedes killed the 4liter in favor of their beloved v6s ,and you for got about the 3.3 v6 in the base 300 and charger.

Well that adds another to it, I thought the 300 and charger had a 3.5 like the magnum did.

The base 300 and Charger come with the 2.7L V6 - a real shitter of a motor.

The 3.3 was in first gen Intrepid's and older dodge/chrysler minivans.

Who knows... all the homeboys that want to pay as little for the car so they can put 24's on it?

Also rental companies, lol - I've driven a 2.7L Charger and it was such a piece. SOOOOO ****ing slow.

I think that the Pacifica either comes with the 3.5L or the 4.0L.

Oops.. just looked it up and one of the options is the 3.8L in 2008.
