    Oh, wow.

    Trickle-down effect is strong!

    I'm hoping for changes to SXT or especially GT as that's where I'd buy.

    Dart is paid off in spring 2019. Can't decide between getting a 2019 Challenger or waiting it out for 20/21 new model.

    Other than F8 Green and Indigo Blue, I don’t see any changes for those models in August.

    Sorry,

    So the widebody is not limited to Hellcat's? Just the SRT line-up of challenger? (double checking, out of curiosity, that you can get a 392 with the widebody, etc)

    Damn, that is huge for me. That was my one complaint about the 5.7 T/A. Now, the 5.7 T/A is a damn fine option to the 392 T/A.

    Any bumps in horse power for 2018 or 2019 in any of the models? Thought I read somewhere the 6.4 might go to 500 and the 5.7 to 400?? I may be mistaken.

    As previously answered... not for 2018. Select 2019 models will get a power bump but it is not a major change since the replacement models will be very close. There will be more equipment trickling down as the end of the current Charger and Challenger get closer.

    They have plenty of HP to be competitive.

    Nope, but you might see torque reserve and air conditioned low charge cooling for your 6.2L Hellcat. Trickled down from Demon.
