    I have grand kids. Had to change it it "Bad Kity" (all that will fit on the license plate) to go along with "Madagascar"

    actually i was reading an article stating the names were derived from aircraft names, which is weird because the WWII Hellcat plane had an engine made by Buick. Im sure it was chosen because of bad-assness and they didnt do alot of background research. I guess as long as the next engine project isnt named after the P-51 mustang they can call them whatever they want. Maybe the 3.5L was called Cessna

    It was on the Internet so that means it's true. I can't find it, if I recall it was one of the hundred bloggers writing anything they could about the hellcat while waiting for the restrictions on driver impressions to be lifted. I was reading every news article Google could find at that time. I thought it was interesting but didn't look into it. I just did a search and found Buick did build a hellcat tank.

    In today's PC world, I'm surprised that they would select the name "Apache" for fear of redskins going on the warpath..

    From what I read, the "Hellcat" name was an internal label and they were just going to call the car "Supercharged". The name was mentioned in passing in a press brief (leak?) and immediately caught traction. Dodge marketing saw this and wisely scrapped the super long "Supercharged" emblems for the weight saving Hellcat kitty stamp.
