Probably not considering Milous has already posted that that won't come around until MY2019 GC. Of course things could change because more and more vehicles are introducing the feature.

Maybe it's visualisation of song info or something in the dash...current implementation sucks.

Maybe it's "V" for Vibrating! As in vibrating and massaging seats.

I remember his anecdotes from way back in 2011 when the WK2 SRT8 was first coming out. I am back from the dead now and it continues!! People are what make a board great! I also remember Scottina06 from back in the day. I have mostly been hanging on the Charger and Challenger SRT forums the last many years.. Glad to see JG has become so awesome, great work Scott!

Yep, going to be a coin-operated system, 25˘ for 5 minutes (35˘ for Canadian models). The coin holder box is behind the dash, when it becomes full, a message will pop up on the radio screen. You will then be required to take it to the dealer to be emptied; the dealer will forward the proceeds to FCA to be used for future product development.

SRT models will have an APV mode (Advanced Performance Vibrating) which will run double the price but will offer 2x & 3x speeds.

Still showing next gen for the 360 cam, but with the delay one could not rule it coming out sooner (but definitely not for 2016 model year).

"V" is something that most SRT owners will not typically utilize on a daily basis, but when the situation arises, they will be damn glad they have it.

Maybe something that increases off-road ability?

Leaning towards vectoring then. Loved it in my Audi, but it seems like a pretty big/complicated upgrade for a mid-model refresh so I don't know.

Vectoring already ruled out. I guess You could say that owners will really never actually "use" what this feature offers, but will certainly enjoy the benefits, if that makes sense...
