    Not sure exactly where I've seen this other than it being tossed around on the forum from time to time; but supposedly the automatic has been re-calibrated to improve 0-60 factory specification from 3.7 down to 3.4?

    Any factuality to this?

    Thank you!

    3.3 was always the internal FCA number

    Might as well say 2.9 not going to happen on the street with street tires with normal operating pressures ;);)

    I wish this rumor from that BS website would die.

    If the car ran 0.3 quicker from 0-60, then the car would be quicker in the quarter. FCA would be bragging away. They're not.

    Tig, not a rumour 3.3 is FCA internal number, whether we can get that on the street or not I can't say as I can't get that but there is no difference between 2015 and 2016 except colours and I believe a faster processor for Uconnect that is in some late 2015's as well
