    Is there a noticeable power difference between 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder models? I'm currently interested in purchasing a jeep and I've noticed the 4 cylinders are quite cheaper. Also, are jeeps problematic?

    4 or 6, from 4 to 6, is there a difference between 4 and 6, 2+2 or 2+2+2
    The only difference that I see is 1.5 liters. :rolleyes:

    yes. 4 cyl is reliable .. but its fucking shit for power, on or off road.

    unless you are running a steep gearset / reduction, get the 6.

    I've had both, and I can say, for my next Jeep, no matter how nice it is, I will NEVER buy another 4cyl... they are very slow... I wouldn't even consider one... and the gas milage is almost exactly the same... within 5 mpg...

    That was my point. There is a HUGE difference, as in two extra cylinders and 1.5 liters

    You would be stupid to not get the inline 6. It is pretty much a bullet proof engine, decent gas millage ( I get 16 in town and 20 highway on a 99 Cherokee), and its got some decent TQ and HP. For a small SUV they get up and go.

    edit: also what model are you looking at?

    4 Cylinder has to work so damn hard to move the heavy Jeep that the mileage between the two is actually the same if you drove the straight-six at the 4 banger speeds.

    Get the 6 cylinder - no doubt about it. Don't forget - the Wrangler LOOKS light, but with it's big boxed chassis and big heavy axles and big heavy everything - it's not light at all.
