There has been a lot of talk about the 2.0L on other threads which includes both performance claims as well as the fire that broke out at the Toledo, Ohio storage lot involving the 2.0L models. Allegedly FCA has corrected the problem by installing a cloth heat shield(sock) on the 48V battery(s) to deal with heat issues on the 2.0L.

My question, has anyone actually taken delivery of a 2.0L model yet and if so can you please share your experience with us?

No 2.0 Turbos have been delivered to dealerships or buyers. The only information you can find on them is pre production models used at the launch event.

It has not been very long since every one produced was destroyed. I would not expect new ones to be produced with the new cloth and delivered within 2 weeks.

They burned in May, next week is August, guess the 2018 2.0L will be shipped with the 2019 models.
