Re: 0-60 times JGC V6 & V8

Anything is possible especially when Jeep is so keen on higher mpg. However the 8 speed really woke up the 3.6 Charger. The tranny has the potential, it's the programming that might hold it back in...

Re: 0-60 times JGC V6 & V8

Video 0-60 times should all be taken with a grain of salt. Weather, location, and incline/decline come into play. These are far from controlled tests.

I think both engines will see a .5 - 1.0...

Re: Grand Cherokee or Range Rover Evoque?

The Evoque is a very nice vehicle but a more direct comparison would be the Range Rover Sport to GC Overland.

Re: 2014 Overland ordered, look at this money factor

Congrats on the order but putting anything down, let alone 11,500 on a lease is a big mistake.
If the vehicle is stolen or totaled early in the lease, that money goes up in smoke. As this is just...

Re: Performance difference between Wk & WK2?

Generally speaking the hemi delivers similar performance in WK1 or WK2 flavor.

However the new 3.6L Pentastar six is much better than the 3.7 six in the WK. ( approx 80hp better.)
