Lol it’s not. But explaining it seems to be. There are more ways to enjoy the A8 than just throwing it in D was the point I guess.
Putting it into M enables people to use the paddles exactly like you would use the “manual” shifter.
On the highway, where you seem to use this feature most, your arms will never EVER get tangled… we aren’t doing parking lot turns on the freeway…

I preferred the paddles over the shifter because it kept my arms and hands where they should be, at 9 and 3, and on the wheel. Holding the paddle to downshift puts it in the lowest possible gear… I think that is unique to the paddle and not the shifter.

Also, regardless of which you use to get to 8th gear, the car will eventually downshift regardless of what you want if it deems it necessary. If I recall correctly, manual mode takes it out of Eco mode, which prevents cruising in 8 anyway, right? I may be mixing that up with something else. Maybe it’s track mode that downshifts out of 8 after a few seconds.

In track mode it shifts up into 7th if you put it in D after manually shifting it up to 8. In sport mode it shifts to 8th gear in D when you are light on the throttle. My car gets about 25mpg on the highway with the cruise control on in sport mode!

Eco did its job.

I don't think I understand.

The contest is giving away the build you enter from the Dodge site, no?

An opinion only. Unless he has inside info about this he is guessing.

Exactly. I've seen him before and like Scotty Kilmer most of his rhetoric is in the negative realm.

I was hoping for some legit info but it's just another enthusiast repeating what we've all said about electric cars. Stellanis I mean Dodge is not in tune with their customer.

I expect my Durango Hellcat to start hitting build status any day now lol.

Maybe they are in some ways in ”tune“ Stage 1, stage 2, and 3 under development. But certainly not long term for all us Ice age folks. Just Gimme that Hellaphant or stage 3 with some real gusto. Preferably the 100 lbs less, all Alumuminum special internal goodies and lots of twist and Factory Hp.


Edit: Also get rid of nasty case of Hiccups in the tune as well. Spoiled I know, the more factory HP you get the more you want.

I have seen rumors 2023 will have Hellephant option but I'm not holding my breath.
