Re: 2015 8-speed (Hemi) differences

There was a software update available for '14 V8 transmissions to make it behave as you describe for the '15. I love the way mine up shifts quickly returning decent mpg's and great acceleration when...

Re: For 5.7L HEMI: what octane rating of gas do you use?

12 mpg is terrible for the V8. 8700 miles and 17.7 lifetime average using Eco mode and 89 octane. Love the V8 combined with the 8 speed!

Re: Is this normal

On #2 are you feeling the MDS activating? At low speed and light acceleration it is noticeable as a slight vibration or growl. The 8 speed for the V8's has been pretty much flawless.

Re: Trailer Tow Group IV Package

If you look in the owner's manual, I believe it shows larger cooling capacity for the coolant fill.

Re: Sales - v6 vs hemi vs diesel?

Also depends on the price of diesel relative to gasoline. Diesel savings get eaten up when it's 40 to 50 cents/gallon higher than regular which is usually the case in some areas.

Re: Sales - v6 vs hemi vs diesel?

The GA dealership I ordered from had about 80 GC's. Two had 4wd, one (Summit) with a V8, and no diesels. No wonder I had to order!

Re: Good Year Round Snow Tires

Re: Map Update Process!!

A $50 Battery Tender is a great investment and can help the battery last much longer than those without one.

The difference is due to intake design differences for under hood packaging reasons.

Re: Coolant Temp Seems Hot

Mine runs 195-205 depending on conditions. I think the stock thermostat is around 195 so it's designed to run pretty warm.
