    This just in -- that "28" code was in fact the 2.0L turbo engine option and is NOW available for ordering!

    It's showing as a $1000 upcharge ($890 invoice) over the base 3.6L engine.

    Combined with the required 8-speed auto transmission, it's a $3,000 upgrade over the base manual 3.6L.

    Ha! I got an email from my dealer yesterday saying I'm JB status, should be shipping soon. I said, "Well I guess that means the 2.0 and Sting-Gray will become available for order now. No way I cancel now. The uncharge does make it a little easier decision.

    Excited as this is what I’ve been waiting for, was worried it was going to be even later in the year. May wait a bit longer to see the EPA numbers to see if it’s truly worth it.

    Doesn't seem that bad... assuming one was getting an auto anyways. I wonder if this will continue the trend of many of the options being less expensive for us Canadians? The 8 speed is $1595 for us.

    a slushbox IMO is a DOWNGRADE!! turbo'd engines function better when when you shift when you want NOT when "big brother" wants to!!!
