I am coming from that wonderful 3.8 motor to the 2.0T and I have no complaints. I do more pavement and highway than dirt or sand as it is my DD. I am loving the 22mpg I have gotten out of her as of this morning. It is still climbing as I have only had it for less than a week. So, yeah, I have no long history with this engine. I also have a V8 Hemi in the Ram. BUT I will say the 2.0T has WAY better gas mileage AND it has more pep than that V8. Granted that's comparing apples and oranges but both move when you push on that skinny pedal. My clunky 3.8 is playing " I think I can, I think I can".
Drive both. See how you feel. It is all in how you are gonna drive it.

We will just have to agree to disagree. I get a headache trying to argue with people who suffer from Dunning–Kruger effect.
Stay strong, @Strommen95

I’m sure I’m not the only one who recognizes the difference between a man trying to have an honest discussion and a prissy, self-impressed jackass whose only purpose is to demean others, in order to show how clever he is.

I suspect I would enjoy wheeling with you.

LOL! And here I was thinking we were just having a heated but light hearted fun debate. Strommen95 if I offended you in any way I apologize.

Oh, and he’s a liar too, I see.

Reread your posts, Sir. They were in no way lighthearted nor in fun.

They were dismissive and superior.

I apologize if it came off that way. Regardless my apology was sincere.
