Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

Alright maybe a poor choice of words, at less than 300 cubic inches it's small in my book, not that it's a dog but it's not a big block either.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

The Durango that I traded for my Commander had the 4.7 and it was a great motor. Plenty of power but certainly you couldnt call it a speed deamon. Got the hemi in my Commander and it too is a great motor but I did think it would be a little quicker then what it is...maybe it is the MDS doing its thing I dont know. And yes the gas mileage is pretty bad so far and I am not even a lead footed driver. YIKES....

Thumbs up Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

The 5.7 Hemi. Fourth Crysler engine. 1997 360 in truck, 4.0 in Jeep Grnd cher,4.7 2001 Dakota 4x4. 4.7 in 2002 Dodge P/U 4x4. I had a very heavy foot then. I never had any trouble with the engines. I think a V6 is to small for this heavy SUV.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

By the Picture you have a Limited 4x4. Nice looks just like mine. I get ~ 16 mpg. For the weight ov the Jeep I don't think that is bad. I have plenty of power. Night and day to my old truck with the 4.7. Don't get me wrong the 4.7 is great. But no mach to 5.7 hemi.

Re: Which engine did you get with your Commander?

I chose the 5.7 hemi 2wd limited. I live in south Louisiana, and it's all flat! And frankly, i'll be damned if I'm gonna take a 38000.00 vehicle muddin!! That's what my dirt bike and four wheeler are for! By the way, I too was expecting a little more oomph, but see this vehicle for what it is 4800-5200 lb. of box. it's actually quite quick for being so heavy. I especially like to stomp it like I stole it at about 60mph.
I then climbs to 80-90 with substantial ease.

How are you getting 17 mpg? I just bought mine - a little bit over a month. I am averaging 12.7 mpg according to the electronic gauge. about a 60/40 city/highway driving. Dealer says it should improve, that the engine needs time to settle. ???
