    That’s why they split the trucks from Dodge so they’re luxury, including the moronic short bus Euro van to take kids to the special classes at school.

        If I have 50 good cars and 50 bad cars why would I split it up?
        Now I have 2 seperate groups and can't use the good cars to offset the bad cars.

            and this too
            the mental gymnastics you have to go to and random bullshit copes that have nothing to do with actual automotive engineering fill every single stage of that pyramid you posted

            Not a single DA poster can factually or logically explain why the V6 configuration is bad. When they do it's either traditionalist 30yo boomer cope or absolutely deluded schizo ramblings and sexual inferences.

            The V6 engine configuration has won the World Rally Championship, powers 200 mph supercars, and reliably delivers your mom's dildo shipment from Amazon.

      Chrysler and Toys 'R Us are taught in business school as examples why you don't keep a huge amount of cash on hand. Daimler spent like $5 billion to acquire control of Chrysler, and then they took Chrysler's $19 billion cash reserve and spent every penny of it. While also slashing the shit out of Chrysler's white collar workforce including engineering, so when they finally cut the husk of the company loose it basically didn't have the capability to design cars any more. Just one of the worst examples of corporate raiding ever.

    This is the 6 cylinder variant of the 2.0L GME T4 that FCA rolled out nearly a decade ago. That engine has had pretty marginal reliability, and FCA/Stellantis has been working to package this higher performance twin turbo version since at least 2019 to replace both the 5.7 and 392 V8s across their lineup.

    The best part? In the 1500 the oil pan will still drain onto the anti-roll bar. Because Chrysler

          if i had to choose between the three, i'd choose the Coyote. Having to top up the oil every now and then is much better than your camshafts eating themselves alive or the Chevies self destructing themselves for the sake of emissions.

        The Ramcharger is literally just the EV with a generator, the engine only charges the battery. I think it makes the most sense

        >regen braking, doubly useful when going down a mountain
        >tried and true pentastar keeps the battery topped off and you can refuel anywhere

        Wonder how they'll program it. Keep the battery charged at 80% all of the time or let it drain to 20% then kick on to charge it to 80%?
        Would be interesting to see if this would be more efficient than just towing with a Pentastar at highway speeds. We already know it's more efficient at city speeds that's just physics
