3.8l or 4.0l ?
Seems there is little conversations here and there, but not a good thread on this.. or I missed it.
Seems like the pro for the 3.8 is a timing chain vs a Belt on the 4.0l (anyone know when Chrysler recomends changing the belt? )
A bit better fuel economy with the 4.0l plus more power.
But the 4.0l is harder to find and may require compromising on options.
Plus only newer ones are available so the sticker price is $250 more plus they may not offer the $500 reddot discount. So that $630 option becomes a $1380. I think I am leaning toward the 3.8 on price alone. No plans to tow and no big mountains in Michigan.
Timing chain scheduled mtce is 102k miles.
Regarding price of 4.0, everything is negotiable.
