The "take" rate on HEMI optioned vehicles has been huge for Dodge, particularly in the truck arena. Expectations are high for Jeep, and I would guess that a lot of HEMI's have been produced. Not sure how well they are selling. The MDS is a big selling point for the 5.7L though.
The average motorist probably doesn't even know what a HEMI is.
I bought my HEMI to impress myself. And it has. But that's all that matters. Who cares what other people think.
Used cars are always a smart buy. I bought mine new, so it dropped in value already. But I use it for business, so I was able to utilize the heavy SUV tax deduction.
