The 392-cubic inch (6.4-liter) HEMI® V-8 delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 470
(637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque. The torque band is extremely flat allowing
for strong standing starts and improved straight-line performance
throughout the rpm range. An advanced active intake manifold along with
high-lift cam with phasing provides maximum low-end torque and high-end
power while still delivering up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway with
the standard manual transmission. Performance-tuned engine mounts improve
idle stability and ride control at all speeds.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology (four cylinder mode) in automatic
transmission equipped models allows the engine to operate economically on

the race track. Both methods give the driver the ability to manually select
specific gears on the transmission.
In "Drive," the transmission controller will automatically shift the
vehicle. The aggressiveness of the shifting is defined by the mode chosen -
either "Normal" or "Sport." Fully adaptive electronic control of all
shifting makes the powertrain more responsive while minimizing harshness.
In "Manual," the shift method is defined by the driver choosing to use
either paddle shift or Auto Stick. The "Sport" mode adds a hold function to
