Also, a note on Fuel mileage. New engines required a few thousand miles to be considered "broken in". Generally 3-5,000 miles or so. My 2013 JK w/3.6 Pentastar was extremely tight when new. Really opened (Power/MPG wise) at around 3,000 miles or so. BIG difference.

So wait to get a few thousand miles on it BEFORE looking a fuel mileage.
I know that. I never said it was the exact same engine. The 2.4L in the Cherokee was updated/redesigned and I said so.

The Dart also comes with the 2.0 Tigershark; I had it in mine. It improved with age.

I drove the 4cyl and was very pleased with the performance. Handled everything well but we don't have too many hills around here.

However ended up buying the 6cyl, as it was one of those things I thought I might regret and knew I wouldn't regret getting the 6cyl. While things are flat here we do travel the hills of PA regularly and the extra power will be nice.

I must admit I'm very happy with the 6 and glad I made the choice.

What is the max the 4cyc can tow? I'm confuse because when you add the tow package they both say they can tow 4,500lb. My v6 2014 Grand Cherokee is only suppose to tow 3,500lbs

2000 pounds. With the factory tow package the 14 grand cherokee can tow 6200 pounds with the v6.

4500lbs is ONLY the V6. The 2.4L max towing capacity is 2000lbs.

I have the 4 cyl and although I like the gas mileage, the engine shifts kinda "bumpy" out of 1st to 2nd gear and on into 3rd. Someone said something about a transmission update?
