As far as driving goes, any difference in power is hardly noticeable. Tires are now Perelli Scorpions.
There is a button on the dash that must be pushed on every start up to override the engine shut down feature. Was told by the selling dealer that there will be software maybe this June that will allow them to disable this function. That way there will be no need to deactivate on every star up.
This is my wife's vehicle and for her, the V-6 provides enough power and a little better gas mileage on her commute.
That would drive me nuts...it's one of the things I was looking at because I hate ESS in any form. As it is, I had times where I didn't remember to turn off Eco on mine and could tell as soon as I started accelerating.
All that said...I ordered my '16 on Friday! Limited 75th Anniversary Edition, Crystal Granite with the black interior. 75th Anniversary Lux package. ORA-II and RA4....and the Hemi
2016 Limited 75th Anniversary Edition 5.7L
