Under the code-name Hellcat, the supercharged Hemi will likely make its debut on a refreshed Dodge Challenger set to be released in late 2014 as part of the 2015 model year. The powerful engine may be offered as an option on other Chrysler vehicles as well.
According to the report, a Chrysler engineer has described the new Hellcat as the swan song for gas-guzzling, high-horsepower engines. Federal mandates for increased fuel economy have put pressure on automakers to reach a fleet-wide efficiency average of 54.5 miles per gallon.
