So.. the electric car has electrical issues.
I find that humorous. Pathetically humorous but still humorous.

No surprise they dicked it up by cheaping out on things they figured no one would notice.
They have been playing us all along with this offering. 1st saying it would be just an EV, then the 'oh, wait - we're going to offer ICE versions, but no V8).
Like we'd all be so grateful to get a V6 - NOT :rolleyes:

On the subject of 6 cyls, my son just got a '25 RAM w the TT I6 in it.
It runs pretty good. I'm more impressed than I expected to be.

The Hurricane is a sweet engine in the wagoneer.

But lets be honest, the gen 3 Hemi was getting a little long in the tooth.

Stellantis is trying to cut their way to victory. Not sure if thats going to work.
They need to find some cash for a new V8 Hemi program and design a fleet of ICE cars for the next 10 years to help fund their EV goals.

But Tavares is more concerned about firing Americans and finding cheap labor than he is about actually building cars people want.

This is where you wish Sergio never passed. He was an automotive visionary not some bottom line whack job.

I have no problem with six-bangers.

The V6 in the Challenger is more than good enough for what it is, and the (derated) Cummins in the 3500 does the job. At least up to a 39,000 lb. CGVWR.

Wouldn't want one in the TRX, though.

Yeah that’s going to be a big nope. You’re going to have to be very bold to be an early adopter of the EV Charger, especially if buying vs leasing.

If your interested in I 6
This is total bullshit

For those of you not interested in the Charger EV, there’s still hope for the gas-powered Six Pack models.
No issues were mentioned with those models and they should still be on track to arrive later this year.

So you never rode a bicycle in the rain? I guess you lived a sheltered life as a child.😂
