426 to replace 392 for SRT

Latest internet talk is that the 426 is 100% confirmed through Dodge insiders and will be replacing the 392 for the SRT model. Some have been asking for a bigger separation between the 392 SRTs and the Scat Packs so this may be it...

It would be the logical step for Dodge to counter Ford's and Chevy's move in the engine advancements in this segment.

Couldn't see myself upgrading from the 392 though for a mere 50hp. I can see a lot of 5.7L R/T guys upgrading to a 426 but for me, if I went out to upgrade from a 392 I'd want the bump in power to be more significant than what a future 426 could provide, i.e. it would have to be Hellcat level power that would feel like a major upgrade.

my fully loaded scat pack isn't too different from the srt besides the adaptive suspension i believe. i have the same wheels, brakes, lowered suspension, and engine. that 7liter for the neglected srt would be nice. i think people either get the scats or jump to hellcats usually skipping the srt.

Well it would seem the 392 would take a similar spot as the 5.7 in the engine line-up as the "little engine that could" lol

I wouldn't say little. It still has the second biggest displacement after the 426. And it will still stay in the middle of the line up. Aren't the planning on getting rid of the 5.7? Is so then yeah it will be the v8 with the least amount of horsepower

It wasn't long ago the 392 was king, how time passes and what was great gets pushed down to fourth place!! Holy Hell!!! These are the greatest moments in muscle car lore! I don't think they are getting rid of the ole 5.7, maybe they should, I like mine just fine for what I only get to use it for, maybe I am just old.

Don't worry dude, I was only joking about "the little engine that could" You can still get the job done with what you have, she hopes!!! lol!!!

yeah and when i was first eyeing the 2008 SRT8 as my dream car, it was the biggest and best you can get. My fully loaded scatpack minus the sun roof is everything I wanted and more, can't complain. it was a huge jump from my 4 banger Avenger but as you get used to the speed, I feel it could be faster

What about the guys who bought a 6.1 in 2008-2010? This great engine will be pushed back to 5th place!

I am happy with my 5.7l, enough Torque to feel it when you nail the throttle. Enough power to cruise up Rt. 11 to Geneva at 120+ MPH. And a real head turner, That's all I bought it for, and it does it just fine. With a tune I am sure it could run with and beat my buddies 2010 Camaro SS. It def. feels more torquey than his manually shifted Camaro.
