I've had zero issues with my 2.0T equipped Trailhawk. That engine is also available in the Wrangler. Nothing but good reviews about it on the Wrangler forums as well as here. They have been around since 2018, and we have a lot of Cherokee owners around here with the 2.0T, and we have seen zero issues yet, and that's from owners closely approaching 70-80,000 miles which is where the Pentastar issues have already began, if they are going to. If I were buying a Jeep now for the first time, I would recommend the 2.0T or the Hemi, if you're considering a Grand Cherokee. Every modern vehicle from literally every manufacturer nowadays has their known issues, you're going to have that when you are driving "Rolling Computers". If you want mechanically almost perfect, you're going to have to buy a Mercedes nowadays. Everything else are just "Disposable Cars"...Just my $0.02...馃槑

Would Jeep or any other manufacturer continue making millions of engines which have a common problem
That would be a yes!!! Reason??? People are still buying, and new engine design, and engineering costs money. There's quite a few manufacturers that are still using outdated designs on literally every system on the vehicle, but it is predominantly on the lower to mid price level vehicles, which our Cherokees, and pretty much all Jeeps fall into, even though I wouldn't consider a fully loaded JLU, or JT a mid price point vehicle when they are approaching the $80,000 range. It's just big business, you just can't upgrade everything, every year that the technologies improve, the costs of new vehicles would skyrocket even more than they already have...馃槑

Both of the "new" Jeep's we bought there had close to 1000 miles on them
That would be a "Demo" model. A new car with 1000 miles on it CANNOT be advertised as new!!! If I'm not mistaken, US federal law states 200 miles or less or something. Since the vehicle hasn't been sold at least once, it doesn't have to be advertised as preowned, but it must be either demo, or the old "Corporate Car" moniker, which you should have never had the pay full new car price for, and if you did, that's on you because you let them. Dealers will continue this practice until they get called out on it, which appears to be rare, or they wouldn't be doing it. My Trailhawk had 9 miles on it when I took delivery in 11/19, and the build date was 2/19, so it had been around a dealership or two for a while before I bought it...馃槑

so based on that, guy told me two things
1. 2T oil change is more than v6.
2. 2T also need premium fuel than regular gas.
V6 he said been around for long . All the stalls that were happening happened on 2T , so he , as a salesman said to go with V6. Not a pushy guy..
2.0T oil change doesn't cost more, it doesn't require premium, but it is recommended for certain conditions, and the stalling issues were due to crappy relays being installed at the factory on all engine option Cherokees, and probably still are...馃槑

3.2 OR NOTHING.馃憠馃槣
On the Challenger site no complaints on the 3.6L used in the Challenger, the only difference is the displacement between it and the 3.2L. My wife loves the 3.6L in her AWD Challenger. I am liking the 3.2L in my Cherokee better than the 4 cylinder the last one had.
