The axle ratio for the older Hemi's was 3.73 compared to the much taller 3.09 ratio used currently for better fuel economy. That taller ratio adversely affects acceleration, although the 8 speed's ratios help somewhat.
My Jeep weighs almost 5200 lbs. Edmonds must have had The entire staff inside that Challenger on the scales!
What about them? For Christ's sake you could buy 2 Grand Cherokees for what a Porsche SUV costs. Why don't you compare it to a Ferrari Enzo?
Correct - all V8's are available only with the 3.09 except for the SRT which has a 3.70.Apologies, they only state gross not curb weight.
How do I know which rear end I have? Did 5.7's come with a specific ratio? I'm 4x2. I agree, this would be a huge improvement. Was one of the first things Corvette guys did on C4's.
If you wanted MORE than a 5.7 HEMI, then yes. Buy a bigger, higher horsepower engine. I wanted more than a V-6...... So here is a news flash.... I bought a 5.7 HEMI V-8 and guess what? I got it!I should have purchased an SRT or a Hellcat if I wanted some power out of my vehicle.
Wasn't aware u could get a 5.7 in 4x2 for MY14/15...can't and never could config that on Jeep.com...I tried when I was shopping Sept '13.Just to stir up the pot a bit, but hemi's get 3.09's for 4x2's. I've seen elsewhere the 4x4's have a different gear ratio. Is this correct for Hemi 4x4's???
