I would hope though that the P would have to be pushed to release the switch into drive or reverse so as not to inadvertently slam the transmission while driving.

Agreed. However, this would be far to logical for Sergio. Factor that and an ego the size of Texas - you've got a 'never gonna happen' destiny.

We've talked about how FCA should partner w/ Geely - I saw pictures of the 2018 Geely Emgrand GL on Vinces site (I won't post the URL as he's not a well respected site in these parts) - but couldn't help but think that this would be SUCH an EASY conversion to the Chrysler 200....

Well I'd assume the brake pedal has to be pressed in order to shift, just like you can't turn the shifting knob in a Ram/Chrysler or updated Fusion etc while driving down the street.

I have a 2017 Fusion and once out of park, I can very easily turn the knob.

It will let you throw it in reverse while barreling down the highway? I'm not saying the knob won't turn, but I highly doubt it will actually shift gears when you do. If so I stand corrected, but I thought that was the whole safety aspect that's built into the push button shifters, etc...so that you don't accidentally shift gears while driving.
