2014 JKUR Engine

His might sound a bit dumb, but is the engine the same in the 2012 JKU Sport and the 2014 JKU Rubicon? I just traded in my '12 unlimited sport for a '14 unlimited rubicon and the engine covers are different. The '12 had "VVT" on in and the '14 just has "V6". I was just curious if there were any changes. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond!

No idea about the cover. 2012+ has the same 3.6L Pentastar engine.

Jeep changed it to V6 for 2014, but of course needed to get rid of the VVT covers still in stock. This is why many 2014 covers don't match.

Well, either that or jeep ripped you off and left the VVT gizmo out of your engine, which is a $60k part.
