A Chrysler 300 Hellcat might be coming in 2018, refresh for 2019
It’s about time that Chrysler dealerships get something “new” to sell.
According to Chrysler’s website, the only models that it still sells are the Pacifica (and it’s hybrid version), the 300, and the 200 (which is technically discontinued). So the car manufacturer sells just three distinct models, two of which are extremely out of date. Clearly Chrysler is in need of some fresh products, and Automotive News reports that they could arrive in the form of crossovers. Try to act surprised.
Hellcats are stalking the hallways at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles nowadays, apparently. While we thought it would strike next in a Ram in the form of a production TRX Concept, it seems the supercharged behemoth will make its way into a Chrysler 300 next.
While it makes sense for FCA to continue capitalizing the Hellcat powertrain with its aging lineup, the idea of putting it into a 300 is a weird one.
Making a Chrysler 300 Hellcat wouldn’t be hard. It’s a Dodge Charger under its conservative smock, after all—and a Dodge Charger Hellcat is most certainly available today.
According to the report, the 2019 Chrysler 300 refresh will aim at shedding weight in an effort to improve fuel economy. There’s also a possibility a turbocharged inline-4 might make its way under the hood. The engine is already earmarked for the next Jeep Wrangler.
