Chrysler recently made waves by announcing that the Dodge Challenger for 2015 would have a 707 hp, 650 lb-ft supercharged V8 engine as the highest output option. We have talked in great lengths about how awesome that is, and even had the opportunity to drive the car recently. Now, we expect the Dodge brand to pull the covers off a Charger SRT Hellcat next week. But what else should see the Hellcat treatment?
During the Investor Day back in May, it was made clear that Dodge would become the performance arm of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (still Chrysler Group, LLC today). That means that the Viper would once again be branded as a Dodge product, but other SRT products like the Chrysler 300 would see the end-of-life. Will FCA stick to their guns and drop the SRT versions of the other vehicles? If they don’t, here’s where we would expect the SRT Hellcat to appear next.

It is believed that the SRT Jeep Grand Cherokee will stay in production until it is refreshed in a few years. The Grand Cherokee SRT sells very well, so we think it’d be silly to discontinue it. A Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat would be an impressive offering; tack all-wheel drive onto the 707 hp package and you’d have a serious supercar slayer in a straight line.
