I know this is the CAFE standards kicking in. I try going up hills with the regular mode and it goes right into 5th/6th gear before I can push the pedal. Dodge has made the ECO mode stand. THey have the engine matched to the tranny with programming, so it slugs. when you hit the gas really hard, it has to think, oh, you want me to get going??? well ok, then you mash it and I still think its in 3rd, not 2nd.
I put a K&N and magnaflow in there, but you almost have to drive it in manual mode and keep it to 4th if you want to move up hills decent.
