You keep trying to say that our egos are somehow bruised...they're not.

Give it up, you're not gonna incite a riot of defensiveness.

The 6.1L is still a badass motor and while the new engine has more HP and torque, it doesn't diminish our engine in the least. The 5.7L Eagle is also badass, but no one says their ego is bruised because there is an bigger motor out there.

What exactly is your agenda in these kind of comments?

I was just poking a stick at you...

You're cute little cut and paste job of an article that spoke about the 6.2L in where you added in a bunch of lies about it being based on the dead 6.1L w/ direct injection proves you have a bruised ego.

I don't even have to say anything, but I thought I'd point it out for you

That was a direct quote from the article and I didn't add anything...despite your attempt to insunuate otherwise. Too bad you just want to poke sticks. Perhaps you might try a different hobby. I'm not biting.

At this point I'm sure everyone has seen the chart saying that 3 SRT's are getting refreshed, but that being said is the 2014 model the one with the refresh or is it the 2015? And any ideas what could be refreshed? The Charger isn't that old and has top of the line stuff. What would could they add other than an 8 speed transmission and the option for the supercharged version? Maybe LED's on the headlights, it seems everything is going that way.

The actual 3 models are on the chart. Challenger, 300 and Charger.

I assume the Challenger will get the 8.4 screen and maybe a little front or rear exterior touch uo but nothing major.

300 and charger get the 8 speed which is a refresh in itself but the screen will now become a 8.4 AN instead of just 8.4N. The TFT cluster should also be in it since the Dart and Cherokee SRT gets it and maybe a little front or rear exterior touch up but again, nothing major.

All I want is 8 speed and TFT, then I will buy it. If any of the 2 features are not in it, I will wait

I'm not even too concerned with the 8-speed I just would hate to purchase one this year just for the transmission to be obsolete the next production year. I'm hoping that when it says refresh 2014 that it means for the 2014 model year and not getting refreshed in 2014 for the 2015 model year.

The only thing I would miss with the 8-speed is when I recently drove a 300 with it in there it just didn't give that pure muscle feel when your shifter is the equivalent of a joystick. But I'm thinking I could get over it!

A lot of talk about OSC, but oddly enough, nobody knows squat about where they are getting info, or who they are. Could be some deep viral effort by true insiders, could be some guy/guys wanting to see how far they go making stuff up.

And nobody seems to be hurt by the new motor, whatever it has or wherever it came from. I just want to see if anyone makes an adapter kit so it's a plug and play in the older cars.

The new Grand Cherokee has an SRT in the center of the Steering Wheel. Is that something we will see in the Chargers as well in 2014?

With the brand name being removed from the SRT brand, it only makes sense that the SRT is written in the middle. All 2014 SRTs are now Charger SRT, Challenger SRT and so on. No more Dodge Charger SRT8...
