More importantly, however, is a new 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with 480-hp and 460 ft-lbs of torque. Pricing is expected to be set at $45,601 with the new engine also making for improvements in the fuel economy department.
In the future, both acceleration and fuel economy will improve further with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
For those interested in the SE model, it gets a new Pentastar V6 displacing 3.6-liters and making 290-hp and 270 ft-lbs of torque – an increase of 40-hp and 20 ft-lbs. It’s also expected to deliver fuel economy of 20/26-mpg (city/highway) up from 18/25-mpg.
