2020 Challenger Hellcat Redeye Wide Body
The press release is an official letter to this site:Do you have a link to the actual official press release that occurred 'yesterday'? Thanks .. i just find web articles paraphrasing it.
The Hellcat and all passenger car V8s for Dodge are done at the end of the 2023 model year. So says Dodge as of press release yesterday.
The press release is an official letter to this site:
A rumor from MotorTrend claimed the next-generation Dodge Charger and Challenger would have a Hemi V8, but Dodge confirmed they will be electric only.www.motor1.com
They just mean the HEMI word/name may still live on. They can still market with the word "HEMI" Does not mean the engine is an actual HEMIDodge did say Hellcat is dead, then they said V8 can't live under the current regulation but also said HEMI is staying for the foreseeable future.
So, even Dodge is causing the confusion.
Coming soon...the Hellcat eNFT LOLFor a fleeting moment, it seemed that Dodge’s Hemi-powered coupe and sedan might live on through the beginning of the “eMuscle” era after all.
eMuscle? Sounds like the automotive version of plant-based meat. The Hemimpossible Hellcat!
I'm not going to discuss this anymore. God has spoken, and God's master has laid down the following rules. Explain to me how a Dodge 392 fits into this. The EPA closed the carbon credit trade starting in 2024:That's a link to a website who received an email from an unnamed Dodge Rep. I don't know if I would be calling that a 'press release'. Even that link you provided says we will get some years of co-existence with a v8 and an EV platform. So I think the v8 is not going completely away in 2023 as you say. (even if the v8 is only the 392). How long the EV and 392 co-exist is the real question, which only time will tell depending on who controls the gov't in the next couple years and could go from there. The smartest thing for all car makers to be doing right now behind closed doors is covering all their bases in terms of directions they can head.
In the 2.0t’s defense: I drove one in a new wrangler several weeks back. I was shocked. Paired to the 8-speed trans it didn’t suck! I couldn’t believe how well it did. Granted…I still wound up buying one with the V6 but my day-dreaming thoughts were contemplating how that engine would do with another 4 cylinders mated to it…add another turbo and some more displacement….I just can’t un-think of a V8. But anyways that 4-banger 8-speed trans combo left me impressed. Will be interesting to see how it does long term.I wouldnt say most lol. Most are being ordered with the 3.6 and the ridiculous 2.0t.
My mom has a '21 Cherokee Limited with the 2.0T and that thing is more fun/gutsier (for what it is) than the "bigger" 3.2 V6, while also being better on gasIn the 2.0t’s defense: I drove one in a new wrangler several weeks back.

They are still pumping them out daily at Saltillo. To many models still use that engine for it to just disappear.Uhh…the Hemi engines they’ve already built?
I think it's BS but respect others to disagree.It's not "bs"
Too far? Maybe.
If the sell enough electric Rams, they could probably keep turning out TRXs with Hellcat engines.Maybe the engine in the TRX. It's a truck and not subjected to the same emission regs as passenger cars. See post #13.
So you're saying science is wrong? WowI think it's BS but respect others to disagree.
There's a long debated topic about whether or not climate change is natural or human-induced. I don't believe the latter, largely due to historical temps. But even if this was the case...aircraft, trains and ships emit a metric sh*t ton more of these "harmful" emissions. It's not even close to discuss it, really.
Then there's the CAFE standards that domino to the consumer. Increase gas mileage? Sure. We'll just make cars more expensive. Study after study shows that gas savings found in hybrid or EVs are eclipsed big time by original cost of the vehicle. By the time these savings are met, or close to being met, it's time to drop $20,000 on a new battery.
It's easy you're quoting science everyone else calls it junk science that is where the debate is.So you're saying science is wrong? Wow
