Motor Trend Reviews 2007 Wrangler

I just received the October '06 issue of Motor Trend --it has the first thorough '07 Wrangler review that I've seen (6 pages). It doesn't appear to be available on the Motor Trend website (yet). It gives lots of kudos to the new design, but closes with the following:

"The Wrangler has gained about 300 pounds. Though the new V-6 has an edge of five pound-feet over the old inline mill, the TJ's PowerTech reached peak torque at just 3200rpm --versus 4000 for the JK's six. Add the extra pounds, and it's no surprise the JK feels less sprightly off the line."

Two steps forward, one step back. I'll miss that old inline 4.0L
