220 charging stations in Iowa last I recall. There are 3 in the Des Moines metro - I think a couple are Tesla. Imagine not being near one of those, you'd better be able to put in some gas to get to the next one.

If it were not for the government subsidizing all the EV crap there would be no EVs. I want to see the EV mfg's pay to put in all the charging stations. If they are so great let them stand on their own feet.

Uh, yes, they have. It started last century, 100 years ago, and continues to this day.
Multiple ways, multiple subsidies for coal, OIL, and natural gas.

I'd rather put a supercharger on my V6 personally. I love the old I-6 I had in my Jeep Cherokees and TJ but not feeling the twin turbos. I'm not racing nobody and if I do want a race I'll do it in my Twin Turbo V8 BMW X5 50i.

The new Hurricane lineup delivers more horsepower, more torque, and fewer emissions than the HEMI engines already in the lineup. When compared to the HEMI offerings already in the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer, the Hurricane engines can be up to 15% more efficient than larger engines.

Top row compared to bottom row (the middle is a 4x2)

More HP, more torque, a bit better mpg.
And for people wondering how it looks inside a Jeep engine bay, here it is:

The Hurricane T6 is a replacement for the Hemi. It's not meant to replace the Pentastar. The replacement for the Pentastar will be a T4 (the 2.0 was the first attempt, expect another).
So if the Hurricane makes it to Gladiator, it will be a premium offering as the 392 is in JL.

Exactly why most charts show it compared directly with the hemi. Power is better, mpg a bit better.
I've not seen it compared in any article with other engines, not a comparison, anyway.

Its funny as I would have it the other way, as turbos are more efficient and superchargers have better throttle response( well roots/twin screw)
