    Looking at upgrading my 2014 Charger SRT and getting into a hellcat. My question is are any major changes happening in the next 2-3 years? My wife surprised me with my SRT months before the hellcat came out and I don't want that happening again. Thanks in advance.

    I'm guessing no major changes for next two years.

    I'll agree with Michael, Most likely just interior trim updates, paint color options, maybe different stripe packages. 2018/2019 and we see a model refresh/new car if FCA sticks to their roadmap. Which they haven't at all so...

    A track specific version, ACR or TA, is a possibility. It has been toyed for several years now and even Ralph Gilles made mention of it during the early phases of the Hellcat release.

    I thought they were going to increase the power to 808HP or 909HP...

    I doubt you'll see a power jump, especially if they are spreading the engine across other platforms; Jeep, Ram.

    Different paint and stripe packages available. No power changes that I am aware of

    All good news then. Powertrain changes were the worries I had. Paint not really an issue considering how far vehicle wraps have come along.

    FCA will never tip their hat on performance based upgrades as it will hurt current sales... but I'll bet if Ford or Chevy pushes the magic HP number... Dodge will bump their's... which is basically a no cost option for the Dodge Boys... lots in the tank of the Hellcat Hemi! Honestly at the high HP numbers the biggest hurdle will be emissions... the Hemi having the centered twin plug heads IMHO will have an advantage.

    I'd love to see a ACR or TA but the weight of this car even after stripping it to bare bones will still weigh more then a regular camaro or mustang now. The frame and panels are what kill this car. Marketing wise the chevy and ford guys will laugh if an ACR came out and it wasn't lighter then a regular camaro or mustang.

    Zero chance of an aluminum block. Or an ACR/TA Hellcat.

    If there were power or considerable body modifications it would make it really tough for me to not take a bath and upgrade.
