Re: How do you know it's a V8?

I wish mine had a HEMI badge, if for no other reason than to pi$$ off the Obama voters and assorted other tree huggers and greenies.

Yes, all '14 V8's have dual exhausts.

If you see blue smoke, you know it's V8. Sorry couldn't help it.

Good one!😀 Is that blue smoke from the exhaust or the tires? 😊

Well, you could cut holes in the hood and front fenders and add mirrors so folks could see the engine cover--or even the top of the engine itself, should it be that important.

Observers could just trail you for a few hundred miles and note how often you stop at gas stations...

Both. Although it is far easier to get blue smoke by parking on an incline with the engine running than it is to get much from the tires with the 5.7 version.

Re: How do you know it's a V8?

I believe that the Flex Fuel badge only comes with the base Laredo model with the Penastar 6. In 2011 I had a Laredo X which was not badged.

Also my 2014 GC Limited Pentastar 6 has dual exhausts. This feature was removed from the 2015 models of the Limited.
