Question Which has the fastest 0-60?

1G 3.5

or

2G 3.2?




(If you say 2G, is the 300m or Intrepid quicker?)

It has always been said that teh 2nd gen LHS was the quickest although I have never seen actual times to back it

To be honest outside of magazines there really isnt anyone testing 0-60 times, I have always used 1/4 mile times instead

I know my 97' LHS was pretty quick off the line. But the 300M is zippy on the highway. I'd think theoretically that the 2G would be quicker.

Thanks for the input. Someone must have a 3.5 and 3.2 to compare

Supposidely, the 2nd gen 3.2 was quicker than the 2nd gen3.5, but as for 1st gen I don't know. I've heard and read that 1st gen 3.5 were faster than 2nd gen 3.5.

Now wait a minute. I have a 96 3.3 and an 01 3.2. The 3.3 has a lot of low end grunt, and it might be quicker 0-30 if you just punch them from idle, but if you torque brake the 3.2, I think it would even win 0-30. 0-60 and 1/4 mile, no contest; the 3.2 is a lot faster. Someone had a sick 3.2 there.

Just for your info:

Output from 2002-2004 for the standard output 3.5L is 234 hp (174 kW) at 6000 rpm with 241 ft·lbf (327 Nm) of torque at 4400 rpm.


For the 2000 R/T the 3.5L produced 242 hp (180 kW). In 2002, the R/T received an extra 2 hp (1.5 kW) from PCM programming changes which allowed it to have 244 hp (182 kW) on 89 octane fuel.
The R/T was discontinued in 2003 but a new SXT model kept the 3.5 liter High Output motor, increased to a 250 hp (186 kW) power rating.


For the 1st Gen in 1993, the 3.5L engine produced 214 hp (160 kW) and 221 ft·lbf (300 Nm).


So there is just 8 HP less horsepower in the standard 3.5L in 02 then in the R/T 3.5L HO of 2000. I can't find any track times for the standard 3.5L.


2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee my current DD

1995 3.5L Intrepid, Sold in 2010

To answer the first question in this post, if you go off of Car&Drivers times. The 1st Gen 3.5L is faster than the 2nd Gen's 3.2. But those numbers are for engine's that are new and in top running shape.

Thanks guys, very informative! Hopefully in a couple months when I have the cash someone will be looking to sell their R/T or SXT (I didn't even know the Intrepid had an SXT model)

Incorrect, any of the motors will run safely on 87, they just cant guarantee the max power ratings

All LH motors from the base 2.7 all the way up to the special 3.5 can use 87 octane
