In addition, plastic manifold will replace the aluminum manifold on the 6.4 SRT8. Inside upgrades in the sedan include Garmin navigation, new safety features, and the A/V options.

Cylinder deactivation would be introduced in the new bigger 6.4 liter SRT8 in order to improve the real world gas mileage.
