Which Engine for Mostly City Driving?
I’m hoping some knowledgeable folks can give me an unbiased view on V6 versus V8.
Currently I’m reading a few internet forums and the opinions sound biased. There’s the V6 camp, and there’s the V8 camp. Though we kinda suspect it’s the V6ers who wished they had V8 that are defending their V6es.
Personally, I think a V6 is sufficient for my needs. I won’t be towing a boat, trailer, three full size overweight passengers, etc. I won’t be climbing mountains or driving over rocks in creeks.
Ms 914 is firm on the V8. She claims the V8 is so much better because her father has the 2002 V8 and she loves how it handles.
I’m sure the V8 would accelerate a tad faster than the V6, but is it really necessary? Haven’t V6 SUV engines handled the driving world well enough so far?
The mpg difference is only 1-2 miles, but if the difference is minimal between V6 and V8, that adds up.
Hoping for unbiased view. Or try to.
