Two i-net magazine guys, posted on you-tube, got a 7.7 with the 2014 CRD during the press intro. I really want to beleive the 5.7 will accellerate faster than the CRD.
The 8 speed fuel economy does not appear to be much better than the 5/6 speed fuel economy. (About the same city, about 1 mpg better hiway.) If the 8 speed cars aren't quicker, I would hope they'll be more responsive. Otherwise, what's the point?
If the CRD is 20-25% more fuel efficient than the Hemi, and just as fast, then, on paper, the CRD is the answer. I'd only have to make sure I do enough hiway driving to allow the regeneration to fully work.
