2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
great size,rear wheel drive but 3.6 does not have quite enough torque - as most v6's go. nice ride but for a new engine needs better gas mileage. meaning 6 speed transmission. i guess the 24 gal fuel tank will give range but at the pump $80 is steep for a fill up?? and price is very steep for upgrades.
The 5 spd transmission is pretty good and extremely smooth. You just complain. Seriously, if you can't handle $80 a tank you have bigger problems and I don't mean the Jeep. The tank is big for a reason, RANGE!!! The fuel economy on this Jeep is better than its competition. The V6 performs at a V8 level.
