Newbie ?/ 235 hp 4.7 vs 305hp 4.7

Hello , I'm looking to buy a used Commander and I have questions about the 4.7. Did jeep put the 305 hp unit in 2007 models/ If it has a flex fuel decal on the back is that the new 305 hp engine? Or is the new motor only in 08 models.
Thanks in advance. I'll post when I'm an official owner . I'm already a jeep junkie w an Mj a Tj and a XJ. Time to upgrade the Xj

They did not start the higher HP 4.7 motor until 2008. Reguardless if its a 2007 4.7 Liter flex fuel or regular 4.7 liter you go the 235 HP.
