Honestly I’m not surprised the V8 will live on. Just shocked that the Hellcat will….
Like 100% completely totally stunned by this claim.
Hopefully it’s true. And hopefully they figure out the manual trans thing. Otherwise as soon as this economy crashes and burns I’ll be scooping up the lowest mileage 2019+ Challenger HCWB M6, with full leather, in either black, F8 or Sublime, that I can find.
Heck, they can keep the current crop of insanely good Hellcat engines and in a much lighter/updated frame, also built for handling, they could easily not HAVE to create all-new V8's for what will be the new "Hellcat" or its replacement? Just conjecture, obviously...or I wonder if they'll go to some kind of smaller/lighter V8 Twin Turbo format?
I would guess they would use the 6.4 or the 5.7, I can't believe that they would spend the R/D for a new engine for a limited time. Still great news for those who would want them though, if it is true.
