Picked mine up yesterday with dealer installed 35's. I was concerned the 35's were going to make it sluggish compared to how I remembered the test drive but it was fine. Stomp on the gas and it jumps forward (well...for a jeep) and no problem getting up to 70-75 quickly. I also found the ESS to be pretty unobtrusive, by the time my foot hits the gas pedal, the engine is on and ready to go. Granted, it's only been a day or so but I'm pretty happy with the 2.0T.
Picked mine up Friday night. Test drove the 2.0 and loved it. First non manual Jeep I’ve owned, but after running Trails on Saturday, I think automatics have caught up or surpassed manuals for control.
