under the hood. With any V-8, the 8-speed also allows for relaxed mid-throttle
passing without having the engine belt out its full song to law enforcement.
Ride quality is on
the firm side, but quite comfortable, even in V-8 models. The combination of
ride quality and handling is impressive on the more performance-oriented
models. Big doors in front make getting in and out easy. And an
elongated roofline makes getting into the back-seat positions easy, even for 6-footers,

materials up high and impressive switchgear.

With an older Dodge vehicle, you’ll find that they require more fuel. The HEMI V-8-powered model however comes with a cylinder deactivation to assists in
fuel efficiency but still does not compare with the new 2018 version.
