    They are coming out with a 5 seater using the 3.8 engine instead of the 3.5.

    That's progressive. Install a bigger fuel guzzler. Obviously, these
    Germans don't take hints from each other. Porsche is making a deal to use
    Toyota hybrid engine technology on their SUV's. Go figure.

    What leads you to believe that the larger displacement engine will be a
    'bigger fuel guzzler'?

    Please show your research.

    Some people shouldn't be allowed near a keyboard.

    Did it ever occur to you that a bigger displacement, LOWER peak
    horsepower but HIGHER peak torque engine might just yield BETTER fuel
    efficiency in a heavy vehicle than a high-revving quad-valve
    overhead-cam engine that spends 99.999% way off its optimum operating
    parameters does?

    Don't confuse him with the facts, Steve. Everybody knows that bigger
    engines use more gas!

    Unfortunately EPA figures aren't available yet at Chrysler's site but I was
    thinking that at least there would be a low end torque improvement.
