HEMI 5.7 eTorque
Like the title says, I am looking at a 2023 Lone Star crew cab 4x4 with the Hemi eTorque and getting a hell of a deal. MSRP is $62k and the OTD price is $47k and change.

The specs are as follows: White Crew Cab w/ 5'7" bed, 4x4, 33 gallon tank, 12" Connect, 7" EVIC, safety group, trailer tow package, pedestrian safety and Lone Start Level 2 group.

The question is, do I wait for the inline 6 twin turbo next year or pick this one up? Who's traded up from a Gladiator and did you have any regrets?

What say the masses about the eTorque reliability? Any issues that weren't covered by the warranty?

I'll be upgrading (relative term) from a Gladiator Rubicon.

Thanks in advance!

Great deal! The hemi is amazing. Jump
Agreed. That's a really good deal. Do it. Don't think about it, just do it, that's 25% off MSRP and it equipped very well. Don't worry about the eTorque, on forums you generally only hear from people that have problems. For each complaint there are probably 1000 satisfied users of said system.

I don’t have the etorque and I’m glad that I don’t. Another thing to break.

Jump on it you won't get a better deal, that hurricane is going to take some years of growing pains it's going to be a cyclone for the first years, I do not like the fact that it has twin turbos.

The hemi is great. Tons of power. The new engine will be great like the hemi, if it stays around a while.

Jump on it. The Hemi and eTorque are well vetted co.binations. Drive it and you'll fall in love with it.

That’s a hell of a deal - beats the one I got on my Limited. But I don’t think I started out low enough. If you like the truck I’d jump on it.

You haven't bought it yet??? U not gonna find many deals like that. I do not have the ER Torque, but a lot of PPL report zero issues, some have issues, but than on a Forum U gotta read between the lines.
