SRT Hellcat - Unlikely!

For those of you secretly harbouring lascivious desires for a GC SRT Hellcat, I am the bearer of bad tidings. Seems Dodge have suspended sales of the Hellcat in both the Challenger and Charger due to unprecedented demand. Can't see them putting this little sucker into a GC SRT if they can't even keep up with the Dodge. Too bad.... would have been a good fit.

The Dodge Hellcats are so hot, they got suspended | Fox News

Re: SRT Hellcat - Unlikely!

This in no way relates to the future production of a Jeep SRT8/Hellcat/Trackcat. Stop creating rumors.

So.....they cant keep up with demand in 2015...so their not gonna offer it in the best selling SRT for 2018? Over 2 years from now?

They may not offer it on the grand cherokee...but it wont be because they suspended orders on the 2015 chally and charger.

Re: SRT Hellcat - Unlikely!

They would be fools not to launch this in the WK3. Hopefully they've learned their lesson from the botched Viper Launch and poor Hellcat demand predictions.

One SRT Jeep. One motor. Shit all over the Germans.

this is the major problem. dodge is reporting over 9000 orders with only 2200 cars finished.

I've had a challenger on order from day 1 i've sense bought another car as I know now I won't see it for at least another year or 2?

Re: SRT Hellcat - Unlikely!

I've said similar for four or five months now. I looked into a Hellcat Charger to be the family runabout, realized that the engine is the long pole in the tent and figured until they fire up some more assembly lines (are they still all pretty much hand made like I believe they were?), as much as we want to Hellcat all the things, it just can't happen. I'd really think hard about getting rid of my GTO and Suburban if I could get a Hellcat Grand Cherokee (and a trailer).

Re: SRT Hellcat - Unlikely!

Have you seen the Jeep SRT Hellcat prototype on U-Tube..... Pretty sweet,
Bigger hood, new front fascia, larger wheel opening flares, additional small spoiler under the rear window, quad exhaust tips, etc........ Query :" Jeep SRT Hellcat" on U-tube......
I guess even if Jeep doesn't produce one for a while, someone somewhere outside the US, appears to be working on one...... It doesn't look to be aftermarket, although, I suppose it could be, so perhaps we will really see one produced one day, or year.

The jeep that your seeing on YouTube is the Renegade kit being produced in Russia. Has nothing at all to do with a hellcat. It was named that to get more hits on YouTube. Completely 100% not real. A badass kit but not a hellcat

Re: SRT Hellcat - Unlikely!
