Is the 4.7 a Hemi?

Unfortunately, the 4.7-liter mill's horsepower clocked in at a relatively puny 235. Since the improvements come from mechanical features borrowed from the 5.7 liter Hemi, Mopar fans are taking to calling the new 4.7 the "Semi-Hemi." Since neither of them has hemispherical combustion chambers, no harm, no blasphemy.

Also know, is the Dodge Ram 4.7 a good engine?

Although it doesn't have near the horsepower or torque of the Hemi, and doesn't really get a lot better gas mileage either, it is still a very good V8. You never hear of any major problems with the 4.7 and they seem to take a beating and come back for more.

Also, how much horsepower does a 4.7 v8 have? It uses chain-driven Single overhead camshafts, one in each head. It originally produced 235 hp (175 kW) and 295 lb⋅ft (400 N⋅m) of torque. The 4.7 L V8 is available with four speed and five speed automatic transmissions and a 5 speed manual transmission.

Also question is, did Dodge make a 4.7 Hemi?

4.7 Liter Next Generation/Corsair V8 Engines (Dodge - Jeep) For model-year 2008, Chrysler adapted lessons from the 5.7-Hemi to the 4.7, and power shot up from 230 hp to 290 hp; gas mileage went up, and vibration went down.

Is the Jeep 3.7 a good motor?

The 3.7L is a very good engine. It provides plenty of torque so it's very adequate for off-road use and even when towing. The downside of the 3.7L is street/expressway driving when you want acceleration. The Commander is heavy, and the 3.7L accelerates noticeably more slowly compared to the 4.7L and 5.7L.
