    Rumorpile: Dodge Challenger With The Hellcat V8 To Debut At Detroit

      The Rumored Hellcat V8 Could Make An Appearance At Detroit

    The past year saw us report on a new high-performance engine from Chrysler with the codename of Hellcat. This engine is a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 producing 600+ horsepower and is reportedly going into the Challenger sometime this year. Well a new rumor has the Hellcat appearing at next week's Detroit Auto Show.

    Allpar has learned from a few sources that the Hellcat V8 will be shown in a Challenger at the Detroit Auto Show, putting it right in line with previous rumors. The engine will be available with the choice of six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.

    Pricing is expected to be somewhere around the $70,000 to $80,000 range.

    Inline with Ford and GM auto's but way out of reach for most middle income performance fans.

    Exciting to see how it trumps the Z28 and GT500. :D

    I'm looking forward to this, I still think the Challenger looks great despite its age. I question the mention of the 8 speed since its been said many times it will not fit in the current Challenger. My only gripe is the interior which needed a major overhaul years ago,

    One of the articles I read said the floorplan was being reshaped to fit the 8 spd. Hopefully the interior will be updated also.
