Past week, Chrysler teased a new performance product to be unveiled on the eve of the Detroit Car Display. The working day has arrived, and Chrysler has remained tight-lipped about what specifically it strategies to exhibit, but based mostly on the specs in the teaser (and Chrysler’s diminutive lineup), we have a fairly very good strategy what we could see this evening.
Chrysler’s teaser included a photograph of the wheel from the 300 sedan, which not that lengthy ago was offered in an SRT variant. The huge, crimson Brembo caliper behind the confront of this alloy implies that we could be looking at a revival of the aged SRT formula, probable with the combination of the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 and 8-speed computerized transmission — a pairing that was hardly ever provided on the previous SRT design.
Although this definitely isn’t really definitive, Chrysler stated the new variant will be “just one of the most strong and luxurious particular version motor vehicles” in its brand name heritage. The SRT product based on this technology of the 300 left the market in 2015 with 470 horsepower. Other types with the 6.4-liter offer as significantly as 485, so there’s headroom below for a new design if Stellantis is so inclined.
There is certainly also the chance that a supercharged Hemi could be introduced, or that AWD could enter the combine, but supplied the sunset position of Chrysler’s present-day internal-combustion powertrains, it is really not likely that such a stage of improvement income would have been thrown at a soon-to-be-discontinued model. But hey, Stellantis, we would even now like to see the Challenger SRT-10. Just indicating.
Be a part of us tonight at 6 p.m. EDT to locate out precisely what Chrysler has in shop.
