4 years and not much has changed.The hellcat challenger with its supposed price tag of 75 to 80000 dollars is a waste,even if it had 800 hp.Gm is in the same boat with its 75000 dollar z28.These so called halo cars like the viper and hellcat are for pr .who can afford one/viper line shut down for lack of sales.I yearn for the days of the roadrunner,something affordable and competive with the competition ,not a overpriced halo car.

at one point it does become senseless because for regular use an engine can only take so much and the cost to go higher is exponentially greater.

The 5.7L is a great engine...I have it in my 2013 300C JV Limited,  but it's a very old engine.  Chrysler needs to get up to the times and produce another engine (possibly a 425+hp 5.0L DI).  I counted 6, maybe 7 models that can/would take advantage of the new engine. The 300, Charger, Challenger, RAM, Durango, and Jeep Grand Cherokee would ALL greatly benefit from this.  If they come out with the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer, that's 7.  I'm pretty positive that they could cover the cost of the R/D and Engine Certification.  Hell, you could probably fit it in the Wrangler Unlimited if they really wanted to.  That would almost cover it with just the RAM, GC, and Wrangler the way they sell.  I guess a man can just dream.....
