Sure glad I traded for the Hemi
 
I have had my new overland 2 days now and all I can say is wow the Hemi sure makes this vehicle. After having the V-6 limited for 5 months the Hemi is like a night and day difference. I don't know what I was thinking the first time not going with the 8 it would have saved me some money making the right choice the first time. They did make some improve to the V-6 pickup with the TSB's but it is still no match for the Hemi. This combined with all the problems I had with the first one made up my mind to just make the trade.

Oh-Oh - This could start another V6 vs. V8 thread.:D

P.S. I agree!

I test drove an overland V6, and I thought the Jeep was a great vehichle - just taking everything in. Then I tested an overland w/the V8 - and i was sold. It went from a truck i 'liked', to a truck I'm 'excited for and can't wait to drive'.

How much of a pain was it to trade for a new vehicle within the same model year? Are you on lease?

I think he returned the other one on a buyback due to unrepairable issues on his first one.

I agree that it is like night and day difference between the v6 and hemi. I am glad v6 owners are happy with their choice, but I have the opportunity to drive both on a daily basis. The hemi smokes the v6 performance wise. A second and a half in the quarter might not seem like much but at 90 miles an hour its several car lengths.

Rule of thumb: every .1 seconds is one car length :)

7.3 0-60
15.4 1/4 mile

Sorry, but those numbers aren't exactly impressive.


The upcoming SRT8 (mid 4's 0-60 and mid 12's for the 1/4 mile) is truly FAST.
