Why no Hemi Badging on 2011 5.7L JCs?

Just curious.

That is the classic signature that I would like to see. Almost like a stamp of american muscle on the back. The only giveaway is the fact that there is dual exhaust which many 4 banger or 6 cylinder SUV's have these days.

Anyone order a custom Hemi Badge? I'm curious about putting one on when I get it. I have one on my 06 Overland and I love it. My friends do too...

"that thing got a hemi?"

I bought this one! Is it the same one that's on your current 06?

What my buddy at the dealer said is that they are no longer stating that the Jeep has a Hemi. ( even though it does ) the only vehichle that will now state it has a Hemi is the Doge cars and trucks. I guess there not very fuel efficiant LOL and Fiat it trying to get away from that bad rap

Re: Why no Hemi Badging on 2011 5.7L JCs?

yes, when my salesman showed me the Hemi GC and I asked why there was no badging on the outside, he said that Chrysler was trying to get away from the Hemi thing and pushing the MDS thing more for the fuel efficiency factor.

Re: Why no Hemi Badging on 2011 5.7L JCs?

Actually the new two cylinders fiat engine is more powerful than the hemi

With 2 cilinders they can get 52.5 hp per cylinder. We only get 48.75..... And the fiat gets 60mpg )....


But we can tow 5 500s.

3m double sided tape (automotive grade).

And I agree - whenever I go to the dealer to look at WK2's I gotta look at the window sticker to see if its the 5.7 or not. I thought that the V6 WK2 came with dual exhaust too?

Oops nevermind, just looked up some pics and its the single exhaust out the right side!
