They've cut the power ratings on the engines, to 143, 150, and 173.

I'm wondering why they bothered with the 1.8, as the 2.0 gets the same fuel econ with CVT and costs only $100 more. Seems like a lot of work to develop an additional engine just to price it $100 lower.

General consensus is that the SRT4 will be FWD with a limited-slip diff.

Well that sucks they cut the HP like that. Maybe is that HP at the wheels now?? I don't care I will still buy one.

Manufacturers never report horsepower at the wheels. Either they didn't initially use the new standards, or tests of production engines found they weren't meeting the original estimates. Since all of the engines are affected, probably the former.
