I agree with you. I also would not buy the Hemi in a Wrangler (but love that engine). I am also baffled by this as it will anger a lot of people if it is not true. Really trying to figure this out myself as well just because it makes no sense. If they made the nose longer to fit the hemi and meet crash requirements it would lose off-road capability. But would sure sound awesome!I agree with you. But the inline-6 isn't ready. If they tease the V8 on Instagram and don't follow through it is a fail. I can't see them doing that.
If they wanted to do that they would put out a leak through a journalist - not publish a photo on their Instagram account.
I don't know why I am posting on this so much. I don't really care. I would never buy the Hemi.
