We live in an era of increasingly stringent fuel economy regulations and consumer expectations of higher and higher MPGs. In response, automakers are downsizing engines, and Dodge’s parents company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is no different.
According to MotorAuthority, that sourced JeepTrackhawkForums, FCA is set to drop all Hemi V8 engines from the SRT lineup. That includes the 6.4-liter V8, as well as the at-issue 6.2-liter unit.
A Challenger SRT Hellcat will set you back $62,495, while a Charger SRT Hellcat will cost $65,945. And that is before the inevitable dealer markups.
The last several years have been unprecedented for high-horsepower muscle cars. Will another automaker up the ante before 2019? Or is the end of an era around the corner?
