A low hoodline allows better visibility. A spoiler under the front bumper helps provide better aerodynamics for slightly increased fuel economy. The .41 drag coefficient would be high for a car, but large outside mirrors don't provide noticeable wind noise in the quiet interior and are handy during lane changes.

The latest version of the Hemi has a Multi-Displacement System, which is the first such system to be offered on a sport-utility.
