Something tells me you're not driving an R/T; probably a rental with the atrocious 2.7L V6 or, at best, the coarse 3.5L V6. So it's no wonder you feel that way. But considering the fact that volume models will now be getting the new Pentastar V6 standard, even lower-end Chargers will have some more grunt (290hp/260 lb-ft, to be exact). Not sure if there will be a low-displacement fleet model. The 5.7L and 6.1L models have certainly never been "anemic" by any means, but they're getting more power as well (and the latter a significant bump in displacement). Not sure about what dynamic improvements Chrysler has made to this platform, but I think it's safe to assume that they've done some work to address handling. Although I was never aware that was a weak point; the suspension architecture may be ooold but I always thought it was capable.
