Yea, not an unusual thing "back in the day" of the earlier "WK2" years when it was Laredo, Limited and Overland. The V6 was more of a pig back then because of the 5 speed transmission, too. From MY14 on, the "WK2" with the V6 was a decent performer with the 8 speed and V8 availability began to slip away on Laredo based vehicles and even lower end Limiteds. While lots of folks who post on forums like this have a craving for the V8, the general public doesn't really care for the most part. There's more interest in fuel economy for the largest percentage of buyers.A Laredo with a Hemi. Novel concept....
Apparently so but now I get it.My sarcasm was clearly missed….
I fully agree, "more than adequate" sums it up, I had a 12 JGC HEMI with the 5/6 speed, and it was decent. I've had a 2015 Charger with 5.7 and 8sp, it was super nice, and then a 2018 Challenger with 6.4 and 8sp, also amazing. I rode in my sister in law's 2020 3.6 8sp, and knew that I would be content with a V6 this time. That 8sp is amazing. Only time I miss the HEMI, is on the interstate and hills at the same time. (which is very rare for me)Apparently so but now I get it.
I did test drive a '12 with the V6 and 5 speed before my '12 with the Hemi and 6 speed arrived. It really was a dog. My '23 JGCL with the V6 and 8 speed is more than adequate. I'm totally happy with it and the 50% improvement in fuel economy around town is a big improvement.
I was in the same situation...the "test drive" vehicle was a MY12 "WK2" Overland Summit, but with the V6 and 5 speed. Not super noticeable during the test drive, but noticeable, nonetheless. As my application included towing, my order specified the Hemi for the Overland Summit I wanted. It performed very well over the 7 years I owned it, including good fuel economy 'cause I drive "really conservatively". The 8 speed introduced with the MY14 "WK2" was a game changer, IMHO, for getting a lot better performance out of the V6 engine. Enough that outside of "personal love of HEMI" folks, a huge percentage of drivers could be very happy with the V6.I did test drive a '12 with the V6 and 5 speed before my '12 with the Hemi and 6 speed arrived.
You are not alone, and it seems to be recent deliveries of '23MY cars that are exhibiting this. My '21 never did that, despite the never-ending electrical glitches it had. The TPMS always 'just worked'. as designed. It may be a supplier flaw, which may be correctible with a software workaround, who knows.I get that but this is a little different then what I've encountered in other vehicles. This car throws an error code and a big warning on the dash. It isn't simply not showing the pressure.
