    More Cylinders can mean more valve area though, which would mean more air flow in and out of the engine. It's all a giant 1000 way balancing act

    Same cubes with less cylinders mean larger valves ..

    Wouldn't Forced induction and direct injection nullify that? I.e. TT v6?

    You still have to have valves... And larger valves are not necessarily bad for forced induction.

    V8's in one for or another have been around since WW I; IMHO they'll never totally go away as long as IC engines are around.........

    The R/T trim cars will be perfect for the upcoming TTV6 models. The cars will stick with the 8-speed automatic from ZF from what I hear. The 8-speed ZF unit used in RWD applications have gotten much praise. But this new TTV6 models are not built for packaging reasons, like the home page articles says as a reason. But they are being pushed in, because of meeting new emissions requirements. Again, please understand.... V8 POWER WILL NOT GO AWAY FROM RWD CARS. HEMIs will still be offered in SRT models. The TTV6 will be available with both RWD and AWD systems. This engine will see itself in SUVs as well as cars. There might be a showing in pickups, however cars are the first priority. The TTV6 will be in a lineup of upgraded PENTASTAR based V6s.

    They V8 will phase out of cars eventually, even SRT vehicles... Unfortunately.

    It will take a while and it certainly won't happen overnight.

    Yes, but it won't be anytime soon... even with the next generation cars.

    I'm really hoping for a manual trans option in the Dart replacement.

    I think there are too many factors still to be determined before that can be official.

    I'm not talking about internal factors. Plans can change fast, the Dart is the perfect example.

    If legislation is changed... We would see the V8's leave sooner or stay longer.

    How about they chop off half the cylinders and call it the SEMI-HEMI...?

    Or the Eco-HEMI...?

    True, but that is the current plan as of right now. FCA is putting a lot of faith in a Trump administration and the elimination of the EPA as promised.

    We are on the same page. Let's stop there before the others move the conversation to politics :)

    I'm sure you're being sarcastic. But the name HEMI is already short for Semi-Hemispherical, so I get a chuckle out of folks trying to coin the Semi-Hemi name. As well, what does the number of cylinders have to do with it. And yes, its as much mythos as terminology, to many a HEMI can only be a V8, while arguably, by terminology, just about any engine configuration could be a Hemi. It depends on how savvy the market folks are, perhaps they'll see the Hemi name on a 4 cyl would backfire, or they might see it as great advertising and marketing to get customers to buy.

    And to avoid political spats, yes, regulation and legislation is overwhelming in the industry, a change in direction of the legislature and executive branch may happen soon. So its NOT shocking manufacturers are hedging their bets and formulating plans to take advantage of changes in the industry that might result in governmental changes in direction. The attitudes and direction is often a pendulum, swinging back and forth over time, that is part of the industry and NOT only for the auto industry.

    We don't need to get into this party or politician will do this or that, good or bad, etc.....

    I always heard Semi Hemi as a reference to certain Ford motors. :)
