It think this was written when FIAT first came on board the way it sounds.

Wow... Speculation, run amok.
I wouldn't be surprised to see forced induction on smaller motors at some point, but I think it's way too early. The 6.4 is already getting better fuel economy than the 6.1 that it supercedes.
Aside from that, the Challenger is already a niche vehicle. Any engine that it has isn't going to make a huge difference in the aggregate CAFE rating.

Info seems outdated and wrong...
^^^ What he said. The info about the Pentastar V6 is old news and Dodge coming out with a blown 5.0 seems misguided at best. The writer doesn't seem aware of the 392 release. My guess is this is something from pre-392 announcement.

Yeah this is wrong, old info hahaha. Not too sure why the author has it as 2012 either, everything hes describing sounds like it would have been speculation on the 2011

Not sure why everyone is saying he was wrong....lol

"but the biggest change will be at the high end where the SRT8 could see a blown 5.0L V8 based on the Pentastar or an extra-large displacement HEMI."
