Test drove a 2012 WK2 3.6.......
 
Such a weak engine. Seriously. My OME lifted WK 3.7 after a little bolt on mods and 93 octane tune drags it every time.

No more 6 cylinder engines for me. I've had enough.

Now let's hear all the 3.6 WK2 owners cry. That thing is weeeeeaaaakkkk!

Who cares what you think of the V6.Bottom line is if it's not for you don't buy one.As for me my 2011 has given me 10k+ trouble free miles gets decent gas mileage and gets me down the road all day at 80mph if I want to.And if I want to go fast I just go in the garage and fire up my VMAX which will make a hemi seem like a 4 banger!!
No cryin here from a happy Pentastar owner.

Don't like what I post...don't respond.

For anybody looking for a WK2 and uncertain about lack of power in the "Pentastar" run away and to the HEMI.

I felt as if it was smoother than my 3.7 when i did the test drive, and power was there, but it ain't no hemi!

I know. I was just amazed at how underpowered the Pentastar is. I was expecting better than that of a 6 cylinder WK.

I guess the hype that I've heard on here disappointed me.

I kicked myself in the ass for not getting a V8 when it gets the same gas mileage as my 6.

The Pentastar suits me just fine.. If I need a Hemi fix, I'll jump in my other ride..

The 3.7L WK can not compare to a 3.6L WK2. Much more passing power, mainly at higher speeds were I feel the 3.7L is the weakest at.

This member claim a 1/4 time of his 3.7L at over 18 sec. Hell, the Liberty did a 1/4 mile in over 17 sec and that truck is faster than the WK......

well, i was unimpressed and amazed at how slow the truck felt with the HEMI. I expected much more from a 5.7L. Is it Better then the pentastar, yes, but fast...NO.
