torque over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing delivers
maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power across a wider and
improved rpm band. Specifically, 90-percent of peak torque is available
between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, allowing for inspired standing starts and
improved straight-line performance.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology and a new-for-2012 active valve Exhaust system allows four-cylinder operation to
engage over a wider rpm range, to deliver both improved fuel efficiency -
an estimated 13-percent increase on the highway - and an extended range of
approximately 450 miles on one tank of gas.
Standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters join the standard AutoStick
on the floor. Both are mated to a proven automatic transmission, allowing a
choice of spirited shifting on the road and the race track. Both methods
give the driver the ability to shift while the transmission controller
calibration prevents situations that might over rev the engine. Fully
adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more
responsive while minimizing harshness.
