    And yet that type of behavior is so counter-productive to an industry where stability (of product and stock price) means a lot.

    There is one very low quality picture that RS posted on the Hellcat forums showing the Charger interior with the leather wrapped dash.

    A couple of years ago, I had a small conversion with the former SRT CEO Ralph Gilles about the Dart SRT development. He stated, there were three engines they tried. 1) TT four, Pentastar V6, and the shoehorned Hemi 5.7.

    In my mind I picture a montage of the engineers laughing manically as they agree on the idea in a meeting, installing the Hemi, firing it for the first time, driving it for the first time, and surveying the mangled drivetrain and/or car after the first day of testing.:D

    No wood. :eek:

    But IMO, we'll get wood+leather with next gen Charger. Of course some will be against that solution and will moan about death of 300.

    I prefer plastic to wood... it doesn't really fit the theme of the Charger either. Carbon fiber or brushed aluminum would be fine.

    Has any SRT product ever had wood in it? I don't think so.

    Sergio's statements on the LX cars was somewhat confusing. He talked about both platform and architecture. i could really care less what happens, but maintaining the hard points of a platform does help make tooling cheaper, right? maybe Sergio mentioned a modified LX platform will be used so that FCA could save money on tooling and other associated factory upgrade costs?? nothing inherently wrong with that.

    So there will be a next Gen Pentastar now? What I have understood (because it has been explicitly stated) is that turbo 4's were replacing the pentastar and I6 was replacing 5.7 in cars. The I6 was getting turbo'd and the SRT's were getting V8's .

    Reading that there might be a turbo pentastar is good news to me, considering what we have seen from Ferrari massaged pentastars in the past.
    Just remember plans are fluid. Who knows what will change in the next couple years...

    Not to me. I have the motor in my car and I don't like it very much. Power output isn't sufficient for a Charger IMO but more importantly it has had a rough idle since the second year I've had it. The dealer consistently tells me that nothing is wrong it, but it has almost stalled a few times. From what I see online its not just my car - it's a common engine issue. It is reliable day to day and I've clocked over 100k miles but the rough idle is worrisome for me.

    After all of the apologetics to justify how much better T4's and I6's would be I'd hate to see them not happen.
