Chrysler will be there, there going about different paths to get the milage, power and emissions by reducing weight, improving aerodynamics as well as improving electrical system efficiency and especially with transmission technology. They have stuff coming up for the V6s, don't worry about that, but don't expect turbos quite yet. ;)

And they are spending a lot of time and money in terms of R&D between both them and Fiat, their owners. The second generation of MultiAir is now out (although is not yet in production), which will probably be barely noticeable increase in efficiency over the first generation (if any at all), and they were supposed to add DI capability into the design for the second generation, but we don't really know if that made it into the final version or not yet. But it's still an advancement. Don't doubt Chrysler and Fiat, they are getting there, and they have things like the multibillion dollar loans to pay into as well (Ford has loans too). They have very competitive power, reliability and product refinement of their competators, and they still have a lot of room to improve their products, I wouldn't be worried at all about Chrysler, the future only looks better from where I'm standing (assuming that the economy plays along...which it may not do so).

Did it ever occur to you the reason for not having a twin turbo V6 in a truck? A turbo diesel is different than a turbo gas engine, to which I would rather have the twin turbo diesel V6 over the gas version (in a truck), because I want torque, not horsepower in a truck.
This as well, and it looks like the VM is going into the truck as well, I forgot about that.
