I voted for the 2.0T non etorque with 8 speed auto just because it is the one under my hood. Bought it off the lot and the engine under someone else's hood just does not do much for me LOL. Would have been okay with the 3.6 as well. I don't care to have hybrids or diesels in a Jeep and the 392 is just now coming out and will cost WAY TOO MUCH.

I went with the 3.6 without the E torque. Less complexity the better. I'd be fine with a manual or auto, but the wifey doesn't know how to work a stick (insert joke here).

They are all good power plants for different reasons. In my case I went with the 2.0t etorque 8 speed auto, its in my Jeep and its been a flawless running machine so far. The 392 has my attention though.....

I’d like to drive an E-torque this quipped 3.6 to test the difference, but I’m perfectly happy with my basic pentastar.

Not sure how you could judge how much you like a Wrangler that hasn’t been produced?
I like the idea of the V8 but if it cost $100K and gets 10 mpg I wouldn’t like it very much.
So I will vote what I know = the 3.0L is the best performing engine that you can own & drive today (for me).

I would really like the sound from the 6.4 but having owned one in a Chrysler 300 SRT, I'm thinking a Jeep with lift on 33's is gonna be a circus ride. I also have a problem containing myself when it comes to horsepower :stop:, so I'll stick with the diesel.

I could (have) come up with a good reason to own all of them. They all have their benefits and I'm going to say that FCA did a pretty good job of giving us some pretty solid choices on power train. What other vehicle has a hybid, turbo, diesel and 392 option? (I threw up in my mouth a little giving those A-holes a compliment)

That being said, i went with the 3.6 on all of ours because they're ducking retards and I wouldn't trust them working on anything more complicated than the 3.6 without e-torque
