Within the Powernet high-speed network, each module (e.g., electronic stability control) processes its individual data and transmits the appropriate commands within the vehicle to activate any additional systems (e.g. anti-lock brake system and cruise control). Uconnect leverages Powernet to deliver fast response time, and share critical information between the 8.4-inch touchscreen and the vehicle information center. The Powernet architecture also is the backbone that supports the Uconnect Access services and applications, including the vehicle health report and remote services.

2014 model year SRT8 Performance Pages example:

(Performance pages feature timers measuring 0-60 mph, one-eighth mile and quarter-mile runs. Lateral and longitudinal G-forces, steering angle, horsepower and torque output and 60-0 breaking distance are all neatly displayed on the vivid 8.4-inch touchscreen. )







So what all have we learned since September? I tried going back to pick out the dropped tidbits, but I got a headache.

Are you meaning you are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel for producing the '13 or that we are getting closer to the full production of the '14?
