oh, ok I see your point, I tried a 4.7 from 2007 when I bought it, but I was giving my opinion more based on how I tried a 2009 4.7 wk, in a short trip to the beach: on the highway, it did not have that "power?" of my hemi, and of roading, it was just not as comfortable, the engine is very slow on getting the rpms, and the transmission was taking forever to change to a lower rev, it had a nice interior trim, though (well, sort of). Insurance gave me that car to use when mine was at the dealer. The Hemi is way more responsive, and the manumatic is extremely helpful on and offroad.
BUT, that is just my opinion, one thing is what it says on paper, and the other is to try the real thing. Maybe if you try it, you will think the opposite, who knows.
