Hopefully FCA loses its mind and builds these.
The Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat models are quite an anomaly. We can't believe that the accountants at FCA actually signed off on two 707 horsepower cars with a crazy name like Hellcat. When we dream about automakers building crazy versions of normal models, we know that the cars will never see the light of day. We still hold out hope that Infiniti will grow a pair and build the Eau Rouge. Dodge has done something that we still can't believe, but what if the brand didn't stop there? What if there were even more Hellcats?
The first car that we have to talk about is the Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk. Although this car will not keep the Hellcat name, this upcoming Jeep will be powered by the 6.2-liter 707 horsepower engine from the Hellcat. If FCA is willing to put its craziest engine into a practical SUV, then what's stopping the company from sticking the engine into other cars? We have already seen the Jeep Trailcat concept that has the 707 horsepower engine crammed into a Wrangler. Hauk Designs in Pennsylvania has even built a custom Wrangler with the Hellcat's drivetrain. None of these cars make any business sense, but boy are they sweet! FCA could even have room for an even more practical Hellcat-powered model.
What if the upcoming Chrysler Pacifica was offered in Hellcat trim? This way, you could get a 707 horsepower car that can also haul the kids around. You wouldn't have to convince the wife that your sports car is impractical, because its a minivan. You'll also never get made fun of for driving a minivan. Instead, you will be the envy of every other dad at soccer practice. Of course, if the Challenger isn't practical enough for you, and you just don't want a sedan, perhaps Dodge could build a Challenger shooting brake. Thanks to renderings from theophiluschin, we can see how cool a shooting brake version of the Challenger would be.
Like the Charger convertible rendering, we really don't think that these cars will ever get the green light for production. However, if the Grand Cherokee TrackHawk is any indication, FCA may have completely lost its mind. With that being the case, who knows what possibilities could become realities in the future. What do you think? Which one of these Hellcat-powered models deserves to be built?
