    Sounds like a guy that wants to write a blog story.

    I actually wasn't going to go there except in vagueness...

    Known and public info is plenty to refute this. Just have to take the time to lay it out.

    Easier to just look at the source of the article... In the forum there is a comment that the Trackhawk would only live a short period of time.

    Seems the author of the article is making the assumption that if the WK replacement does not have a Hellcat or a Hemi, then that goes for all future vehicles, which simply is not true.

    It's good click bait with a poorly vetted article. No need to take the time to lay out anything that could be taken incorrectly. ;)

    Damn it, these websites are annoying me. I might take them off my favorites. I knew I could count on allpar, always.

    Yeah, gets attention to the authors website... That's about it. It's easy to see that the author is making a big assumption based on very little.

    There is plenty of public and non-public info from Chrysler that completely refutes this story.

    Which is another reason why an assumption like the one in the article is very short sighted.

    I dont recall how long its been but as of right know 2015 Grand Cherokee any trim in 4x2 you can not get the Hemi, even if its a sold order. Not sure if its just because of restrictions on the motor or not. 2016 has not opened up yet to tell if it continues the same way.
    Its not even a searchable option if you wanted to try and find one.

    The article says Hemis , not V8's. There could be a return to the MAG. V8

    Uh. no.

    Don't get me wrong, love the Magnum, but the complete architecture is too outdated to be used in anything currently in production.

    Power output, No
    Emissions compliance ( specifically combustion chamber shaping ) no
    Longevity, no

    etc etc...

    I don't see any radical changes away from the Hemi in cars till at least 2021, or whenever the new generation of Lx cars drop.

    At this point, in trucks, they will still be around for a long time to come.

    There are certain projects and investments being made that wouldn't be being made if they planned on shitcanning the motor in the near term...

    No I mean a new generation of Magnum based on the 3.6 V6. Would make for a compact design to fit in something like a RWD D dodge sedan.
