    I should add the 7-inch UConnect is standard on Charger SXT for the 2018 model year. Since Chrysler 300 has standard 8.4-inch UConnect systems, it will not be offered on that vehicle.

    Here it is in a 2018 Dodge Charger SXT

    They are the 20-Inch x 9-Inch Hyper Black II Forged Alum Wheels

    Standard on R/T with the Super Track Pak, Daytona (with the 5.7L HEMI) and optional on the R/T Scat Pack models.

    You can also get the wheels now optional on regular R/T models for a price of $995US.

    I hate to throw a wet blanket on this great performance vehicle discussion, but I am curious about the status of the Fiat 500E. Are there going to be any changes once the next generation gets imported from Poland? Nissan just announced a more affordable Leaf for 2018, with a driving range of 150 miles. The Fiat currently holds the bottom of the heap with only 85 miles of driving range. I know that the 500E is only a compliance car that sucks money out of the corporate coffers, but things are changing rapidly in the EU, and now FCA has more weapons in their arsenal with the Pacifica PHEV and 48V coming online. Perhaps there will be some trickle down technology. FCA can get away with a money losing compliance car on America's left coast, but that strategy isn't going to play out in Europe.

    New Hellcat "3D" fender badges...no go. Still using the old style fender badge.
    New Challenger "Auto-up" windows...no go as well.
    Still working on these issues.

    If you get the super track pack on an R/T, does it come with the 3.06 (or 3.07 or whatever) gear? The language in the press release suggests that only V6 STP's get the optional rear gear.

    Yes, STP has always comes with the upgraded rear gear.

    I really don’t get the confusion on this topic.

    It will probably get the updated looks but powertrain will be the same. Problem with the 500e is its only available in California and they lose money on everyone they sell. Go on cars.com and look how many used ones are on the market for under $7000US. You'll be surprised. But don't expect it to get a huge amount of changes.

    You can do it with Siri on iPhone, just hold down the VOICE button for more than 1 sec. Then tell Siri, "Read Messages"

    3.07? Hmm, thought it was a 3:09 rear.

    We aren’t talking about SRT rear differentials.

    Even better, just say "hey Siri, read messages" provided your phone is already unlocked.
