I expect this will cost over $60K, and still lose to the CTS-V. So I can't imagine this will sell well. The CTS-V will still be the better car and at around the same price.

10k increase for a supercharger... um..... i don't think so. maybe 55k, but over 60k, chrysler wouldn't even try to sell this, they've never had a 4 door sedan over 60k, correct me if i'm wrong.

Must be a pretty conservative tune on the blower to only net 70-100 HP

So, Caddy can get 6.1 hemi power out of a 3.6L V6 - What could we get out of a twin-turbo 5.7L hemi?

That is the stuff SRT should be doing

Ford and Chrysler have this stupid idea they can play in ultra luxury territory, and it's not working well for either one.

I would guess you are getting low feedback because this is old news....but good to read again.....though I decided after the supercharged SRT10 I would stay NA....dont get me wrong, the supercharged 10 was a blast but I just feel I can tinker more with an NA engine than an FI one...
