Well, perhaps I was wrong last night in our conversation. Looks like they are moving up the release of the Hellcat to the NAIAS in Detriot. Perhaps this was the big news the insider was referring too, although not that the car would be released soon, but that the HP figures are what they are...

http://www.allpar.com/news/index.php/2014/01/hellcat-on-the-way

This is the first time that any reliable source has stated that the HP figures are greater than that of both the Z/28 and GT 500... To be clear, they've just stated that the Hellcat has more than 662 HP - they've never done that before. Up until now, they've just stated that they benchmarked the Z/28 and GT 500 and were aiming for 700HP - they've never given a solid answer though, and many people were thinking 640-650HP. That's just awesome! As the article says, it's "absolutely sinister, stupid power." Can't wait!

More on the new 200, and damn, it looks good! It does appear to share some styling cues with the VW CC, FWIW...

The side shot shows the 200 sharing the rear silhouette shape of a Honda Civic of recent years Ive seen in ads.   And it has way to much of the jelly bean styling.   Honestly you can slap a logo from a dozen other manufacturers and Id believe it.   Overall: MEH...

Damn, look at that interior!



That's REAL, open-pore wood...

As one of the sources said: "If you put taped 4 rings on the grill, this car would have no trouble selling for $25K more..."

7 speeds, 8 speeds, 9 speeds. Yowza! At what point do we finally spend the $ and ¢ on beefing up continuously variable transmissions? I can see stronger CVT units surely being the answer for decent chunks of car classes, like this 200 and the flotilla of Camry, Accord and the like out there.

Its getting closer with the dual clutch tech allowing hardly any loss of momentum per shift.   Its partly due to the increase in weight I bet that we see the 7+ speeds.    Low drag and many gears allows heavy cars to still get good mileage.

According to the engineers at Chrysler, 7-9 speeds is the limit. More than 9 and it gets in it's own way, but less than 7 means you give up some efficiency.

CVT are okay, but their design (not the parts they're built with) limits the amount of power they can handle. Coefficients of friction can be a bitch...

More info on the Hellcat and the 2015 refresh:

Challenger will be a getting a '71 style grille, a refined (and better looking) lower valence, a Shaker hood, side scoops/scallops (supposedly functional, at least on Hellcat models), and a special "Track Key" (similar to the Boss Mustang) that drastically changes tuning and traction control settings when it's used.

Some decent pics and even a video in there.

Why, hello there, Hellcat...

Okay, so this is actually just a very good Photoshop, but the insiders say this is the car. The R/T will look similar, but have a smaller, more rectangular lower opening and projector foglights similar to those on the current Chargers.

The hood on the R/T will be different, with the Shaker being an option. The hood shown here is not 100%, but it's close. The Hellcat will have both an inlet/snorkle and extractors (al la Viper).

I'm not going to say it's an impossibility though it is a 760 mi. round trip.

2015 Charger - This is its face:



Personally, I'd remove the blackout, but I like the wide and narrow grille. Very '68-ish.

2015 Challenger - This is its ass:



Hello, 1971! And look at that little detail in the spoiler! Anyone catch the Scat Pack Bee on the side??? Think R/T with 6.4L... Very nice.

Car and Driver is covering it, Jalopnik is covering it. Is it true? Is SRT being absorbed by Dodge?

It's true.


And it makes perfect since. SRT should not have ever been it's own brand in my mind.
