Mine came with 21s and while the ride is not bad, (coming from a coilovered M3) in fact, it's very smooth; i still wouldn't mind getting a little more sidewall on my tires. Tires are275/45/21. Would like to get into a 295/45 or 275/50-55. But with 21s, the options are so limited that it looks like i'm stuck. Oh well, at least i'm used to swerving for potholes.

Looks great. Love the new tail lights. Will be ordering ours in a few weeks. No one around me has an RT, much less with my color choice and options.

We haven't ordered it yet but will do so around August 9th. I want a white rt with tech and nav and standard bench seats. Most rts don't come with the tech and dealer stock always has the captains chairs and with 2 kids that's a no no for me.

yeah, the 40-60 bench in 2nd row was a must for us with kid on the way. have the leather and premium group package on ours which gives the 20" alum wheels, Nav, sound system, power sunroof, and power liftgate group. pretty much what we needed. heated seats and dual climate were the other main needs.

have a long drive for vacation up to ikea in chicago and then to michigan and am looking forward to seeing how it feels. on drive back from dealer got 24mpg as advertised going 72+.

i would like to compare to driving the Hemi. power feels adequate with the v-6, but imagine towing would feel the biggest difference.

Tell me the nav isn't the best you have used in any car. I think chrysler new 8.4" Navis are by far the best.

this is the first nav i've had in a car, but generally i've always used my phone in cars with nav because they are crappy and hard to use. haven't used this one much, just played around a little, but it seems really good so far. nice big screen and convenient features.

I see what you're saying but if look at official Dodge logos and badges and you'll be hard pressed to find a large cross as their logo. In fact, the only place i have found where the logo you posted shows up on on the steering wheel of some models.

The cross stems from the grill of their RAM lineup. Which means the large cross grill became a badge of sorts, not unlike BMW kidney grills.

Most dodge cars and all trucks/SUV's/minivans made in the past two decades has had a giant cross on the grill, it's a brand signature. Not really sure why this is new...
