VVT engine only in Compass
I´m wondering why bigger engines like 3.7L or bigger ones are not VVT or those trucks have CVT transmission.
Compass with a 2.4L engine gives 170 hp, that is like 70.8hp per liter. And in grand cherokee 2010 3.7L, it only gives 210HP, that is 56.7HP per liter. Why not use a better motor with VVT or DOHC, 3.7L is not VVT and is SOHC.
This is a matter of dollars???..... Dodge Durango is 3.6L V6 and gives 290hp... that means 80.5 hp per liter.
When buying a truck i think performance and eficiency is also a point to take in account.
