Durango HELLCAT

Recommended Posts

Seems Chris Doan, occasional visitor to C&G caught a Dodge Durango Hellcat exposed for the world to see. Seems the folks did not secure the tarp too good and HotRod is showing off the images of the beast with the new nose clip.

Interesting seeing this nose on the Durango. Check out more picks at HotRod.com web site.

This is getting ridiculous.

 

I mean, yeah, we all preach HellCat all the things...but really it's just going to take away vital resources for the core segments they should be going after.

 

Hellcats may be cash money. But how does that bode well for anything else?

Sergio is destroying FCA with his piss pore Alfa crap and Fiat crap and so at least Dodge is getting another auto that can make money and hopefully give cash to update other dodge products.

 

One can only hope that Sergio will stop raping the American name plates to steal all the money.

 

I do think you have a point, they could very well be spending that money to update other products, but then maybe this is all they can afford, drop in the engine and a nose clip plus brakes and let it go.

Yeah, and when CAFE requirements ramp up all those products will go away. So will all of those sales.

 

Which means they'll have depleted showrooms with nothing desirable for anyone.

 

I'm predicting a huge implosion soon.

      If you wanted to drop FCA's monstrous Hellcat supercharged V8 into a project vehicle of yours, you needed to go down to your local salvage yard to rip one out of a Charger or Challenger Hellcat that met a premature end. But that will be changing this week at the SEMA Show.
      Mopar has announced that it will be seeling a crate version of the Hellcat engine. There will also be a Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit that includes the necessary items to make for an easier swap such as a wiring harness, powertrain control module. oxygen sensors, fuel pump control module, and other bits. An optional Front End Accessory Drive kit brings an alternator, power steering pump, belts, pulleys, and other key parts.
       
      Before you start planning a Hellcat transplant into a Fiat 500L, Mopar says the kit is "intended for pre-1976 street and off-road vehicles." That doesn't mean you can't do this with a modern vehicle, it will only mean a bit more work to pull it off.
      “Never before has a supercharged, factory-direct 707-horsepower crate engine kit been offered, and we are proud to be the first to deliver a solution enthusiasts have demanded. This ultimate powertrain option fits the needs of owners and fans who demand iconic performance,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA.
      The Hellcrate will set you back $19,530, while the engine kit will cost $2,195.

      Fiat Chrysler Automobile has quietly ended production of right-hand drive models from Chrysler and Dodge. According to South Africa's Wheels24, the announcement comes as FCA drops Chrysler and Dodge from their South Africa lineup.
      "FCA will say a fond farewell to two of the mainstay car brands, with the Chrysler and Dodge vehicle ranges no longer being available locally. This unfortunate situation has arisen from our principals in the USA no longer building Chrysler or Dodge vehicles in Right Hand Drive configuration," the company told Wheels24.
      According to Allpar, FCA built RHD variants of 300 and Charger in Brampton, Ontario, and Pacifica and Grand Caravan in Windsor, Ontario. It is unclear if this move will affect other markets where FCA sells RHD models such as Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia. When reached for comment by Australia's CarAdvice, FCA Australia's manager of public relations Alessia Terranova said,
      “I am not at liberty to comment on South Africa’s decision. What I can tell you is that Australia will continue to sell the right-hand drive Chrysler 300 as an ongoing product in our lineup. In relation to Dodge, at this stage, this brand is represented as a parts and service operation only.”
      We'll keep you posted on this story.
