Running Engine Sounds

I own a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, 6 speed manual. I'm lucky enough to be on vacation and have rented a 2012 Unlimited Sport automatic. The engine sound is significantly different even though they are the same engine.

The Sport engine sounds all smooth and refined.. The engine in my jeep actually sounds like its growling. Sportier, more powerful.

Why would the engines sound different? Is it something to do with mine being a Rubicon and this one being a Sport?

I'm not going to get worried, cause I love my jeep, but any advice anyone can pass along would be appreciated.

Sport does not have hood insulation like the Rubi/Sahara's do.
