Hot off the press!
A super Challenger on the way: The Sleuth is plugged into the Chrysler grapevine and what he hears is the rumble of a very special Dodge Challenger SRT392 model set to arrive in the spring. What’s so special, you might ask? Well, the existing 470-horsepower 6.4-liter“Hemi”V8 will be available in a supercharged format that could boost output past 600 horsepower.That would allow it to compete against the Mustangbased 662-horsepower Shelby GT500 as well as the 580-horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
For the 2015 model year, the Challenger will undergo major reconstruction and a name change to Barracuda, which is a more iconic name than Challenger. No word on content, but the Barracuda could wind up using a modified Alfa Romeo chassis that’s lighter than the current Chrysler 300/Dodge Chargerbased platform, offer an assortment of four-/sixand eight-cylinder powerplants, and feature optional all-wheel-drive. The Sleuth can’t wait.
