Re: My Experience with E85 and V6

To get the full power yes, but the timing can be advanced considerably, it's the same principle as tuning for 93 octane instead of 87. That is how ford and GM manage to get more power out of E85, gm...

Re: My Experience with E85 and V6

Jeep, Ram, and chevy don't release different numbers, Ford is the only one that does. The numbers don't lie.
Ford F150 5.0 goes from 360 hp to 375 hp.
GM 5.3 from 355 hp to 380 hp.

Re: My Experience with E85 and V6

E85 has a higher hp rating in most flex fuel vehicles. Ford actually publishes different numbers for E85 and gas, generally it is a 10 to 15 hp gain because of the added timing you can throw at it. ...

Re: SELEC-TERRAIN Selections

The only mode that requires you to be stopped is rock mode, which is only because that requires a shift to 4 low as well.

Re: No diesel Cherokee without Grand Cherokee sales boost.

I'm sure if I read the newspaper adds the same deal is here. But as soon as you go to the dealer the price miraculously skyrockets... I had that problem when I was shopping for my ram.

Some of them also have a manual passenger seat vs power seat due to lack of parts. They discounted those to reflect that.
