They don't even come closeI have to admit this thing is very good looking. If Cadillac can sell 90k Escalades, I do not see why Jeep cannot sell this.
Every Ram 1500 and Ram 2500 has an independent rear suspension, don't they?The article brings up an interesting tidbit.....the Wagoneer has in independent rear suspension. This was a big deal as the Ford F-150 Lightning also has an IRS but a claimed towing capacity of 10,000 pounds.
Most IRS vehicles are not well-suited for towing because once rocking is introduced, it is difficult to get back under control. Modern electronics may be the solution that both Jeep and Ford will use.
Siri is moving to on-device processing rather than sending stuff over cell. Don't know if it applies to automotive, and it only works on iPhone X and above (I'm still using a 6S, and it's supported by the upcoming OS 15, so I don't get that feature). Alexa and Google have zero privacy promises, as I recall... and if they did, their track record tells me not to believe them.Alexa, HeyGoogle, and Siri are all listening to every word while you drive. Unless you have kids arguing in the back running interference for the recognition routines.
I thought it was five-link... “A multi-link suspension is a type of vehicle suspension design typically used in independent suspensions, using three or more lateral arms, and one or more longitudinal arms”No, they are solid rear axles. The big Dodge/Ram change was moving from leaf springs to coils on the rear.
It was stated that the 6.4 is a variant of the SRT 6.4, and not the truck engine. My guess would be that the changes that reduced the power ratings were mostly NVH and packaging related, which would mean the internals are still mostly the same. So my guess is that is whyWhy premium fuel?
Not to harp on this point, but it’s all the small issues and the dealership experience too that have given Chrysler products their reputation.Hopefully it is the vehicle that kills the low quality image that has been attached to Chrysler (I personally have never had any major issues with my 4 Rams and the wife's Jeep).
You can almost always tune for better fuel economy with premium, and it almost never makes up for the difference in the price of the fuel. Sometimes they prefer to tune for more power instead of better fuel economy, that is the tradeoff.My guess, it either burns cleaner or gives better gas mileage than when tuned for regular fuel. The lineup previously known as FCA in the US is going to recommend premium fuel if it helps at all with its EPA numbers.
