I've always wanted a Hellcat Wrangler. But given a choice, I know I'd have a hard time picking between a Hemi and electric w/generator. Instant torque is addicting.

Thanks for voting!

edit: yeah, that is my vote for the electric.

edit2: Keep in mind, there is no distinction between gas/diesel, for example a tubo v6 could be either.

i added supercharged v6 and naturally aspirated, but let's be realistic, we can't build a 500hp i4 without forced induction and afford it.

I also wanted to add LS3 because it is such a strong engine but wanted to stay within the mopar family.

Interesting so far. I also liked my i6 4.0 from the mid 90's. Can't say i miss it though. I am a fan of naturally aspirated but recognize the efficiency gains of turbos/superchargers.

The 6cyl turbo diesel is very attractive for sure. I wasn't specific enough in the poll to differentiate between diesel/gas.

I'd buy diesel over gas, all things being equal.

Supercharged V6 wasn't an option

I'd have to go with a 5.7 Hemi too.

Although a stripped down two door with a 2.2 L Turbo Diesel and a six speed would be a sweet little ride.
