Rumor

Will the Dodge Charger Receive the Hellcat Engine?

600+ horsepower would make it America’s most powerful sedan.

Now that the dust has settled after the introduction of the600-plus horsepower Hellcat engine (final figures still pending) powering the2015 Dodge Challenger SRT, it’s time to speculate where else this engine mightbe headed. Based on previous announcements by Fiat-Chrysler, it seems that alikely recipient of the most powerful V8 engine in Chrysler’s history may bethe Charger sedan. Given this engine, the Charger would easily become the mostpowerful sedan produced in America.

According to Automotive News, "the supercharged Hellcatis expected to migrate to other SRT vehicles, including the Charger SRT." Thisassumption was also mirrored in the recent Fiat-Chrysler five-year plan forDodge, where a rear-wheel drive Charger SRT powered by a V8 engine is clearlyindicated. With this engine, the Charger would easily crush all existingcompetition from American four-doors, bringing the muscle sedan back with agrowling bang.
