Hellcat

  • 2020 Jeep Gladiator

    Jeep has admitted the Wrangler and new Gladiator pickup can stuff parent automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobile's supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V-8 under the hood, but there's a rather large roadblock. Head of the Jeep brand in North America, Tim Kuniskis, said the Hellcat engine "fits like a glove," but it fits a little too snugly, according to a Monday report by the Australian website Drive. The engine leaves no space in the Wrangler and Gladiator for sufficient crush zones. In the event of a crash, the Hellcat engine would leave no room to absorb energy, and Kuniskis said a Hellcat-powered...

    Twin-turbo Chrysler 300 SRT8 sleeper hides Hellcat upbringings under the hood

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles never gave Hellcat power to the Chrysler 300 from the factory, but that didn't stop one owner from doing it themselves. YouTuber TalonTSi97 captured this 2014 300 SRT8 with a Hellcat engine block and twin turbochargers from Hellion. Needless to say, it's quite a beast. The...

  • Hellcat driver hits 198 mph on the highway

    The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a 200-mph machine. It's a 707-horsepower (717 for 2019) insane muscle car that's warped our definition of "appropriate power." But with that power comes responsibility, and that's something a 22-year-old in North Carolina clearly lacks. William Jefferson posted a video of himself driving his Hellcat 198 mph to YouTube. That's stupid on two counts. A concerned citizen sent the video to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, and they were none too pleased. The stretch of Wake County, North Carolina, road in the video is US-1. It appears to be in great shape...

  • 2018 Chrysler 300

    Hold your horses. All 707 of them, apparently. A report from Automotive News on Monday had us salivating that a Chrysler 300 Hellcat could be ready to leap out of the skunkwerks and into showrooms. Not so fast. A Fiat Chrysler Automobiles spokesman told Motor Authority on Tuesday that the automaker has no plans for a supercharged V-8 Hemi Hellcat engine in the Chrysler 300. Not here, not there, not anywhere. From the get-go, a Hellcat-powered Chrysler 300 raised our eyebrows. Chrysler offered an SRT-powered 300 for a few years in the U.S., but dropped the high-po full-sizer in 2013 to keep...
