    Its been a while now. What is the latest on it. Last I ever read. Was problems with the transfer case not being able to hold up
    When will these be out? Will all these be automatic?
    Any more pics besides the ones dodge showed?

    I haven't hear anything new in a month or so. :( Last I heard they may detune the Hellcat to get the driveline to hold up... no official announcement but it is still expected to be released but not likely in 2016.:) Who knows time will tell! If released I bet they would all be automatic.

    Really. I thought was gonna be out this year. I made the comment to the wife about selling my 3 cudas. My blown hemi and trading in my 14 ram 4x4 to get one. ......that sucks
    Wonder what the tow cap will be on one?
    If in tow mode. Wiuld prob have to be in a lower hp level (think black key or valet mode)

    There are zero pics of anything Chrysler is working on that may or may not be called a Trackhawk. They don't exist.

    We still don't know for sure what may get called Trackhawk, nor do we know for sure what sits under the hood of the supposed upcoming model.

    Those pics of the red Jeep are merely concept/what-if/hypothetical images and are not of an actual vehicle. And they didn't come from Chrysler/FCA.

I notice the hood is not the same as any of the ones here. Could these be test cars? Also notice has the same plate on them (dealer plate/ company)?

    I don't know if there is any validity to this or not but in late September (2015) when I bought my
    green cat, one of the two owners of the dealership that sold the car to me had a conversation with me.

    He's an "old school" hot rodder and real deal gear head. He is very active with racing and even
    tractor pull trucks. They had just dynode a big cubic inch Hemi motor and we spoke about the
    future of the Hellcat motors. He told me that there are Trucks that have already been tested and
    approved to get the Hellcat motors. We didn't talk about the Jeep line only the Challengers, Chargers and the Ram style trucks.

    So again, I don't know how much stock to put into this but supposedly Dodge WILL be building a
    1500 series of truck with the Hellcat motors. All with an automatic trans and all in 2 wheel drive.

    I hope it happens. I'd buy one.

    It's amazing how many different rumors there are and how many dealers, etc "are in the know". So many just want others to say wow look at that guy. He has connections. Then, months later none of it materializes.

    I think the front plate on the GC is from Russia. That looks like a RUS and the Russian flag. I can guarantee you FCA is not testing uncamoed GC Hellcats in Russia.
