Happily counting the days until I can order the diesel + 8spd.

I've got a 2012 Overland with the Hemi. 0-60, as documented elswhere, is as low as 6.9 seconds. If I punch it my GC leaps forward, so generally take it easy.
If yours is behaving differently consider taking it to the dealer.

Lol. It's behaving normally. Many people complain about the hemi's gearing and power robbing transmission programming.

Re: Are you unhappy with your engine choice?

I enjoy the Hemi but the programming pisses me off. Chrysler programming engineers are retarded at best.
