V6 engine is more than adequate mated to 6 speed trans. RT model with full power so far we really like vehicle. Navigation with big touch screen is great.The biggest drawback to this vehicle is no power lift gate, I prefer to use both hands when closing which is difficult with packages in hands. 5 star rating if it had power lift gate, sometimes very inconvenient, we didn't realize how much we miss that feature until we no longer had it. Do not understand why Dodge left this feature off this vehicle, hard to compete in class without it.

This has been a reliable vehicle so far. It is definitely more affordable than other SUVs in this market. I enjoy the perks of the R/T (heated seats, Alpine stereo). I have had issues with my Bluetooth lately. The website suggests downloading an update, which I'll try soon.
There's quite a bit of room in the backseat. I have a son who is 6'2" tall and he fits comfortably in the back seat. I wrongly assumed that he would be OK in the drivers seat. He fits, but just barely. With the seat all the way back and the steering wheel all the way up, his knees almost touch the steering wheel. Don't buy this if you're extremely tall. My wife has had some issues with the Bluetooth connectivity. If you only have one phone synced to the car, it seems to work better. It has very little power off the line. We knew it wasn't going to be ballsy, but we both really wish we had something with a bit more power. It's fine once you're on the road. I can pass people with no problem., but not much take off power.
