Hellcats waiting for delivery

by David Zatz on

fleet of hellcats

2015 Dodge Challengers, including  many with supercharged Hellcat engines, are starting to pile up in the Jefferson North parking lot as they await loading onto rail cars and trucks (yard248 photo). This will be good news for buyers, dealers, and Dodge alike, as the 707-horsepower is a rolling advertisement for the company.

The company has said that it will not restrict sales or production of Challengers and Chargers with the engine, but Allpar was told some time ago that the company’s capacity to build the engine is restricted to a few thousand per year. That may change if it is popular enough, and rumors have gone from “there will definitely be no Grand Cherokee or Ram with this engine” to “there may be a Grand Cherokee and/or Ram with this engine.” The Grand Cherokee option seems more likely, based on the source and the success of the Grand Cherokee SRT8 with the 6.4 liter engine.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
