    I googled it and it actually doesn't look that bad. Black models look good, especially if there's other chrome.

    Chicago is getting buried in snow this weekend. Hopefully things will be cleared out Monday, since I'm supposed to be there on Tuesday to see the auto show. Maybe they will have a Cherokee that may be sat in.

    A lot of little changes in a vehicle sure does add up.

    We have two that could be delivered today or tomorrow. They are at the rail yard just waiting on a truck to deliver to the dealerships.

    Any updates on when the 2.0L 4-cylinders are going to show up? What about MPG for them?

    I don’t think figures that close would make me pay a premium over the 6cyl for the turbo, at least for the TH.

    ~10% better fuel economy across the board + more overall power (and a lower peak torque) isn't that close to me. Seems like a win-win upgrade to me.

    And I just checked... the 2.0 is a $500 option on the 4WD versions over the 3.2. That's pretty much nothing.

    What's interesting is that the 3.2L is rated on regular fuel in Canada, but mid-range in the USA. The 2018 Canadian owner's manual calls for regular, and doesn't call for mid-range at all.

    US manual states 87 octane.

    In Michigan and many other States premium is at least 25% ($0.60 gal) over regular so its a win-lose situation. For many the slight advantage in performance will not be worth the additional fuel cost.

    The US EPA has listed the Cherokee 3.2 as tested with mid grade starting in 2017. The earlier model years were tested on regular.

    Not everywhere in Michigan (I drive A LOT between Michigan and Ohio). Gas prices fluctuate a lot. Heck, around a month ago I filled up my Scat Pack with Premium for only 20 cents over Regular at a Sam's Club (can't remember if that was Ohio or Michigan).

    I have found that the gas prices (and the different in pricing for the octane levels) vary highly.

    FWIW, my 3.2 Trailhawk was a thirsty beast when I had it, don't think I once hit EPA specs. Got close, but my all highway drives netted mostly low 20s (best was 24 IIRC, and the 2014s were rated to 25 then).

    As @valiant67 pointed out as well, Midgrade is the recommended fuel for the 3.2. So recommended vs recommend is even closer then.

    For me personally, the slight penalty to fuel price is still outweighed by the performance and potential mileage improves from picking this engine. For you, the answer could be different. Guess that's why there are still engine choices.

    One last thing to note, did anyone else notice this new Hurricane meets or beats the 2.4L fuel economy rating too? Sounds like FCA really upped their 4cyl game. Can't wait to see how the other inevitable variants hold up.

    Mid grade recommend by who? This is from 2018 manual.

    Sam’s Club are few and far between and like Costco are not typical of general gas prices. I’m retired and drive many States each year (Challenger SRT392) and finding premium at less than $0.60 mark up is like finding hen’s teeth.

    Just traded Challenger for 3.2 TH and combined consumption to date, 700 miles 20.4.

    Obviously, you make your choice based on your preference or needs, but the fuel cost difference is not as insignificant as you make out.

    @gwilliams2076 this information is straight from the EPA at fueleconomy.gov. This means that, in order to achieve those results, they used that fuel.

    Between Ohio and Michigan most gas stations I frequent (not including the discounters) are at $.20-$.25 difference per fuel grade. It appears that our personal experiences differ with regard to fuel prices.

    Does the EPA not care about fuel grade?

    EPA does care, but the Monroney sticker currently doesn't have a place for it. That's why FuelEconomy.gov is the place to go to figure out what fuel grade was used to get the EPA spec'd mileage.
