I would wonder if they ever fixed the camshaft and lifter problems in the hemi engines. Until that is definitely fixed, I wouldn't touch one with a $111,000 pole.


Fixed in 2016 engines.


They did?

Here's a video from Mr Mopar himself on the topic. Link


It's fixed. But now they go through more oil between changes than an OPEC exec combs through their hair before a CARB board meeting. [emoticon]


Haven`t seen one that uses oil. Even the infamous Hemi lifter issue isn`t that much of an issue. I have a 300C with the 5.7 and 75k miles. no problems.


I'm just giving a the Dodge guys a hard time. But the Hemi's we are testing running hard do consume oil. But not at a higher rate than other performance engines at similar abuse levels.

If it is fixed, simply show me the new parts and tell me why they are better and also the old parts and explain why they failed.

Looks like a Durango and a Commander had a kid, I don't hate it. Prices are just getting ridiculous though, 100k for a daily driver seems insane to me.

Agree, but it’s just in the same league as other upscale luxury SUVs.

As the current and previous owner of a very small sample size of Hemis. (New ones not the old school Hemi, unfortunately...)
A 5.7, a 6.1 that I sold with 150k miles and a newer 6.4, can’t say that I’ve ever added a drop of oil between oil changes on any of them.
Of course this is not newsworthy as none of the 40-50 GMs, Fords or Chryslers we’ve had over the last 30 years (since I was of driving age) has burned oil. Save for old bombers that were just plain wore out.
Our old Cummins would drink Rotella though. Idk why. Tried it twice and it would go through Rosmella like chit thru a goose but not other brands. Strange inexplicable occurrence to me.

I have seen them. I don't care enough about your opinion to go to the effort to try and explain it.

Having owned a full sized Jeep Wagoneer in the past, all I want to know is where's the wood grain?

Woodgrain is back in the '70s. Real wood is back in the '50s.

Although I am sure someone will wrap some wood on for you.

Mine was an 82, but they had woodgrain through the end in 92ish [emoticon]
