Question 2.7 vs 3.2/3.5 performance

I went and test drove an Intrepid yesterday, a 2.7 and was really happy with the general ride and qaulity of the car, however the 2.7 seemed to be way under powered for the size of the car... how much of a difference does the 3.2 and the 3.5 really make?

Some people really don't care about power. My Mother is one of them.
You are obviously not one of them. If you have any doubts about the power of a 2.7 step up the the 3.5.
Big difference with a car load of people too.

no treps are really fast cars without serious modifications but the 3.5 is decent...enough power to get going...good passing power/high end.

OMG, go try the difference for yourself...........the 3.5 is a LOT faster, feels like more difference than the #'s suggest........plus the 2.7 hasn't exactly been getting much good publicity around here.
