Very cool explanation of everything that goes on. Couldn't help but notice the best 4.6???????? Plenty of owners have gotten better than that already without it.

I have heard from 2 diff independent tests that the 0/60 has got down to 3.9 but we will have to wait till chrysler releases there test. I ALSO FOUND OUT THAT IF YOU HAVE THE TRAILER TOW PACKAGE ITS A 150LB ADDED WT OVER THE JEEPS THAT DONT HAVE IT.

Yep, very excited, it's like they refined it just for folks like me. I have a 4.3 from a year ago, maybe that vehicle hadn't been broken in yet?

The jeep in the video only had 1300 miles on it or so. I think with some more break in, it will run faster. Also, location of the video shoot plays a role.

Nonetheless, still a really neat feature on the '14 jeep.

So they can regenerate interest every couple of model years.
