    Land Rover did it as well in the 2018-19 RRS 'HSE Dynamic' before moving to the i6 MHEV P360 or P400. Can't imagine it would be that tough to safely get to that output if one felt the need.
    The 2018 Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic further elevates both your SUV's style and power. Under the hood it has a 3.0L V6 Supercharged engine that gets up to 380 horsepower.

    That’s a good point didn’t think of that. Adding 100 hp and 100 tq for $2k is a pretty good deal

    Any info on where to get the inexpensive PCV Valve kit?

    We have a 2012 LR4 HSE LUX and my daughter has a 2015 Grand Cherokee with all the bells and whistles minus the Hemi.
    To me it would be a no brainer for the jeep. they are super comfortable, roomy, lots more options and her 6 banger is every bit as powerful as the V-8 in the LR-4. Now my wife would pick her LR-4.

    How does the Jeep compare in reliability and niggling electrical and mechanical issues?

    The 6-banger in the Jeep is a 3.6 and is not nearly as powerful. The Jeep is just lighter.

    I wonder how/why it's 'lighter'? (JK, we all know). It's apple vs. orange again...or some such metaphor.

    It doesn't have the same pull on the highway either. When I drove a Jeep GC V6 all I could think was it needs the hemi. If I get a JGC it will have the 5.7.

    The timing chain issue was fixed on the 2013 V8 model. So that is always an option. But the more affordable route is to just fix the current one you have.
