2.0T is 270 hp, Pentastar is around 300 hp, depending upon the exhaust. 2.0T is fine, if you need something more basic detune it to 200 HP, as they do for the base Giulia in Europe.They won't mold the trucks back into Dodge. It's one of the things that even though I didn't really agree with seems to have worked. Dodge on the other hand, could use a sedan like the Alfa, and remove the exotic parts, put the 2.0T engine and 8sp. But here's the downside, for volume needed, they would need lower models that would be cheaper, and they really don't have a good base engine to use, unless the Pentastar is it. Then you might as well buy a Charger. More room and close to the same economy I'd imagine.
Many people don't want a big full sized car.
