    If my 5.7 will outrun one.....im pretty sure a 5.3 could as well.

    Just hammer down and hold it. Chances are the jeep owner will ***** out around 90 and let off.

    Re: silverado vs jeep cherokee

    Having only known the Jeeps and their I-6 engines for more than half of my driving licensed life, I can tell you that I wouldn't even bother to waste the gas or the wear and tear on the truck. My Silverado feels like a Camaro compared to my old Jeeps and I thought those things scooted pretty well when the pedal was mashed to the floor. I now know that wasn't the case. Your truck will win and it should: modern 5.3 v8 versus a 1970's era I-6... not even a fair fight really.

    Re: silverado vs jeep cherokee

    That's kind of a silly comparison. The I-6 doesn't make anywhere near the power, but it does make a reasonable amount of torque down low where a 4wd can use it. The 5.3 has much better fueling, it flows more air and makes much better high end power where a truck on the freeway can use it. The I-6 may win on longevity - they tend to run damn near forever. They also pull pretty hard at the low end, so don't be surprised if they get an edge coming off a light. They cannot hold it though, they run out of wind just over 3000 rpm, while the 5.3 just starts to wake up there.

    Re: silverado vs jeep cherokee

    You guys do realize you are talking about the 4.0L I-6 with MPI that was not introduced until the late-70's, and this '98 would be an even more powerful H.O. version? This isn't the old 258 I-6 carb'd that the responses above seem to be talking about that were dogs with limited rpm range.

    The Jeep would have 190 HP (at almost 5,000 rpm) engine but only weighs between 3,000 and 3,500 lbs. In other words it would have a better horsepower to weight ratio than a 5.3L truck. I also did a quick search and found reports of similar 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile times between the two types of vehicles.

    Don't get me wrong as I'm not saying the Cherokee would win, just that I don't think it would quite the non-event that the responses make it out to be.

    Yep, I've had several of them and they don't breath well at the higher rpm ranges. The 4.0 came out in the '91 YJ, I think they were in the Cherokee a year or so earlier. They are torquey engines that are well suited to 4 wheeling, but they are low rpm engines. They don't breath as well as the 258's and a popular upgrade is to put the old head on the newer engine. Don't be too critical of carburetors - I have a carb'd 258 in a Jeep now that would run circles around the stock 4.0's I've had in the past.

    Again - I would expect the 4.0 to pull ahead on the short distance (assuming it is geared right), but the 5.3 would pass it by once the rpm's picked up.

    Re: silverado vs jeep cherokee

    I've driven quite a few 4.0L jeeps (nto 258 jeeps). The engine is torquey, but doesn't have much zip to it.

    Power to weight argument...
    190hp/3200lbs (4x4 XJ's range from 3050-3300lbs IIRC) = 0.059hp/lb
    285hp (2000 LM7 spec)/4667lbs (based on my registration) = 0.061hp/lb

    I know my L33 would eat it alive, having driven both.

    Re: silverado vs jeep cherokee

    I owned a 4.0 Cherokee as well, theyre peppy for what they are but definitely not speed demons. They're still awesome engines though, mine had 187k miles when i sold it and was still running strong.

    Meant to say "late 80's", not late 70's.

    Again, I'm saying the Cherokee would win but the power to weight ratio might be a little skewed above. I thought the 2000 models were still rated at only 270 HP and 4,600 lbs. seems pretty light for a lot of versions of this truck. I'm somewhat doubtful a 4x4 extended cab only weighs that much.

    Finally someone comes through with an actual race results. Usually they start a stupid thread like this and never come back with results.
