I was reading a thread about someone's hemi dying an early and tragic death. One of the posters said that the new V6 has had troubles. Downstream I was thinking about getting a V6 and was wondering how the engine is doing generally.

I have over 16K miles on mine w/o any problems. It took me awhile coming from 30+ years of driving manual trannies to get used to a slushbox and especially the drive by wire. Now I know where the sweet spots are in the loud pedal's travel and I use it to my advantage. I dont find the V6 slow of the line.
Also remember Chrysler had access to Mercedes and AMG R&D when they designed this engine. Just wont be the same in the future when they have access to Alfa and Fiat R&D or even Maserati and Ferrari.
I believe the V6 is superior to anything from Honda/Acura, Toyota/Lexus, Nissan/Infiniti, Ford, GM, and Audi/VW/Porsche. Only 6 cylinders that are superior and its by just a little are BMw's I6 and Mercedes V6.
There are lots of 2011s out there with high mileage on the used market. Seems to be a good indication that most of them made it to around 100k without (major) problems. Also, Jeep's 100k powertrain warranty will take care of any issues you do have before then. Have only put 1k on mine, but bought it used with 13k and no problems so far!
