I am wondering if anyone can give me info on the difference between the 3.7 and 4 ("upgraded") engines.. performance, mpg, reliability...etc, etc
The 3.7 is a Heavy Duty truck engine. The 4.0 is a Light Duty car engine. The Nitro is the only truck Chrysler offered the 4.0 as an option, to differentiate it from the Jeep Liberty, on which the Nitro is based.
