    Am I the only one who wants a 40+ mpg manual transmission car from Chrysler, and doesn't care if it's 0-60 in 8+ seconds? Really, I've been waiting over a decade for a car to replace my Daytona. They need to get the gas mileage up on Dart. Chrysler has no other car that gets gas mileage that can compete with Civic, Corolla and others.

    I know, the original Jeeps were tiny compared to today. Seen a couple at a car show and couldn't believe how small they used to be, especially when side by side to the new ones.

    True. Their sales were also tiny. Each size increase yielded more sales.

    Maybe they have a Double Secret factory to produce them located in East Bumblephuck that is staffed by Oompa Loompas and Unicorns? :D

    Hey - don't mock. The Oompa Loompas and the Unicorns have great representation.

    Some highlights:

    New Chrysler full size SUV, looked awesome. Durango size-ish, great design..can’t wait. Even had stow-and-go
    Well, now - just where did THAT come from? ;)

    Dart R/T and Dart GLH - and the turbo engine (no details) will be available in all trim levels. Best part? Dart GLH starts below $20k. 1.8 turbo hurricane engine On darts.
    1.8? Interesting...

    The NEW Power Wagon.. holy ****... awesome looking and was on 37’s. 37’s won’t be on the production version, but it’ll have 35’s. Looks like the Ram Rebel on steroids.
    Sometimes the clues are RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU.

    Not having any news about a Dart SRT4 doesn't mean there isn't one in the works. Maybe, they are not ready to release any details as of yet.

    Other link posted some updated Power Wagon options, hopefully with 35's and the capability of fitting 37" in stock form. that would be very exciting news if it comes out.

    Looks like the show has been a success. Does any other manufacturers do this?

    Yes, it's actually pretty standard in the industry to show the dealers advance products. Keeps the whining about "the other guys have better stuff" to a minimum as they see how much better their own future products will be. ;)

    It's the 1.4L turbo, which is widely reported to be badly underpowered (as in, worse than my TBI Daytona) before boost kicks in, and may have had more problems than either the 2.0 or the 2.4.

    Plus, the added cost of premium gas for the turbo will kill any savings over my current 33 mpg on 87 octane gas.

    True, but I think the 300 HP Dart on it's own is worth it's own merits. I think they will hold off the showing of a SRT4 version to give it's own announcement just like they did with the Hellcat IF they have one???

    I heard about the Hemi going to 5.5L = 340 for Charger and Challenger.

    wait?, what?... the 1.4 is underpowered or you don't car about the 8+ seconds. It is not underpowered it just needs to be launched properly. Not unlike the Daytona. Cars have gotten hefty to meet todays NVH standards and safety making Apples to Oranges... I can say for sure a Dart Aero is infinitely better vehicle overall (as one would expect) then a Daytona Turbo (I owned one, great car for the time).....

    There will be vehicle that will compete more closely from a size and efficiency to the Corolla and Civic then the nearly mid-sized Dart... but not directly in that crowded market the 100
