There you have it. It's not underpowered, it's improperly geared.

ColdSRT I know it's slated to go in the challenger SE as well. Should be a nice little motor that will still suffer from the throttle by wire and lousy factory shift points just like the 3.8. The increased power will be nice in the hills. We just bought our 2010 rubicon and we are already planning on buying another. We will be waiting until the new motor shows up.

It'll go into the new Dodge charger police vehicles also. THAT's the one I'd like to have in a Jeep.

Aaronkushner Ok i get the excitement I do, but IMO, I would never buy the first year with a new engine. You know there are going to be plenty of bugs they need to work out. At least wait till year 2 when they have some of them fixed. Just my two cents though.

PTaylor i don't know if I'd be waiting, are they using the Pentastar engine on something else? I hate buying anything first production because all the problems haven't been shaken out, if they ever are. I think I'd wait and see what other people think, what problems arise, etc. JMO though.

silvrevo Dang it,,, and I took all this time to get a second IP address.

Ur gooood Tom.

daggo66 Silvrevo? Is that you?

Mr. Sinister yes. unless you can't wait, then no.
it is supposed to make more power everywhere than even the 4.0 did.
it's your decision, don't let us make it for you. i don't need a 290hp jeep, i figure it's easier to stay out of trouble with 202. i bought my 2010 about a month ago.

Wait for Pentastar??

Assuming that the new Pentastar engine will be made available in the 2012 Wrangler, should I wait till then to buy one?? I know it's new but has anyone heard any feedback on it's performance? I know it has more horsepower and torque but how much torque in the lower end? Any feedback/opinions would be appreciated. Thanks again.
