    I did a search. Didn't see any threads about it. Blah, blah, 4 doors, blah, domestic, blah, blah

    I think it's sexy as fuck. Saw one on Woodward with manufacturer plates, but I was too slow with the camera.. :hs:

    Edited for misinformation. But are we really arguing about gas mileage?

    it definately could have used some refining...I am not a huge fan of the body, that being said it is a cool ride and I love the heritage.

    I'd drive the shit out of one.

    But for what I want in a car it's too big and too pricey. Otherwise it's perfect.

    The technology has been around a long damn time. There's gotta be a reason they don't use it on everything. :dunno:

    Oh wow, Anti-lock brakes, Airbags, cruise control, fuel injection, overhead cams, air conditioning, automatic transmissions! All just one more thing to break!!!




    W/ a name like Benzo AMG 55 I would assume you would embrace advancements in automotive technology, especially those that allow high performance without the drawbacks.. guess not though.

    cost. i think ford engineers first thought up the whole variable valve timing thing, but few of their engines utilize it, yet VTEC is a ricers wet dream? unreliable, no, just a few dollars more per engine in a game based on bullshit cost cutting. :dunno:

    My bad. Victim of internet rumor. Research seems to show 25mpg on the e-way.

    At least from Dodge.com
    The advanced Multiple Displacement System (MDS) uses electronics to switch from eight cylinders to four during cruising and light acceleration, delivering up to 350 horsepower with the fuel economy of a large V6. The transition is seamless and imperceptible, requiring a mere 40 milliseconds (0.04 seconds) to activate or deactivate the telescoping lifters, fuel injectors, and sparkplugs.


    • From 5 to 20 percent improvement in fuel economy (17 city / 25 highway)*
    • Seamless transition from eight to four cylinders
    • Power when you need it–fuel economy when you don't
    * EPA estimated

    I'm starting to love that car.

    If I ever need a sedan anytime soon, that's going to be it.
