The 300C has the Hemi and the old 5-speed and it gets about 25MPG HWY. The 300 Limited has the 3.6 Pentastar with the 8-speed is pulling 31MPG HWY.

Thanks for the correction. I stated 300C and I meant to put "Box on wheels"

The dial shifter will only come on models equipped with the 8 speed transmission. If you're adamant about having the paddle, it will still be available on the 6 speeds. I believe the air suspension starts at the Big Horn trim level.

Trucks have truly passed the level of any rational inclusion of technology. Not to say they aren't pretty but for those who use a truck like a truck and do it for 10 and 15 years it's insane. All too appease a government that knows nothing about rational legislation, let alone automobiles.

LOL, I guess the government is the reason we are able to make after market products and change anything we want to on our vehicles right? LOL... Just saying. I am anti big government too, but to lay blame for this type of vehicle on big government is not doing any one any good. If anything blame it on Prius/hybrid owners. HAHA

I am not a fan of this truck though I would like a few of those bells and whistles on my '07. I like the fact that I can still make any adjustments I want on my truck and not worry about environmental issues. Bunch of nonsense. If I was worried about the environment then I wouldn't have gone WOT passing that slow Prius going 5 miles an hour slower than the speed limit yesterday!!! I blew more out my exhaust in that pass than that guy will save in 10 years!!! LOL.... Anyway, Nice "looking" truck that '13 model. I just can't see functionality of it as a truck. It is more for that guy I passed in that Prius who was envious of my HEMI blowing his windows out as I went by while his wife says "he isn't conscious of the environment" while she was eating her soy burger and tapioca pudding...

Just saying!!!

I'm kinda liking this Gen 4 2013 refresh. But I'm still going to wait until 2014 to get one could be a few kinks to work out of the 2013 first.

That dial shifter is the worst idea ever....dont like how they flipped the fog lights either. I was set to order a 2012 express till I realized that 2012 ordering is done. I cant decide to try and find a new one with what I wanted or get a 2013.

I completely agree on that shifter knob. I hope there is some kind of safety and it takes some force to turn, it will be pretty stupid if it turns just like the hvac knobs. I wonder how much quicker it will be with the 8 speed, and i do like that evic display.

i believe the dial shifter should only be used to get it out of Park
after that, you will be using steering wheel buttons to shift

Plus the knob won't be on every model, I'm pretty sure it'll be more of a Laramie thing. I just hope they fix the console shifter, the plastic creaks a bit to much for my liking...
