I want the Red Eye hood & wide body kit for my 2017 GT. To go along with those upgrades I want a V8 & keep the AWD.

Dodge, like other car manufacturers, does what is best to increase sales. If making the SRT hood available on SE models generates more profits it will do it. This reminds me of the initial production year of 2008, where Hemi-orange Pearl pearl was supposed to be a one-year run for SRTs. Instead, it was offered in 2009 (SRTs and R/Ts) and, again, in two additional years.

I love the Double Hump Hood on my RT Scat. It is "understated"......but clearly there is something mean going on under there!

Dodge has to make the 6 cyl appealing to increase sales. Gotta do what they gotta do.

I figured it out! YouTube (and Ford) is behind it all. There is a Ford mole working at Dodge that sold them on the idea. This way there will be TONS of videos posted about how Mustangs are beating Hellcats all over the place, clips of one coming up behind in the rear view mirror, then they pull away. "Duuuude, didja see dat? Yah, Brah, you roasted a HellCat!"

I don't like that you can't get the hood on the v8's anymore. I don't care for the new hoods. I do have the itch for a Shaker...

Nope. I have a 6 cylinder. Need AWD where I live, and the ONLY reason I bought a Challenger was because they look cool.

If they don’t buy a car with it on it, they’ll just buy it aftermarket. No difference in my mind.

I used to think the hood on my SRT was a lot more rare than it is now, but I don’t feel violated about it. Some love it, some hate it. Can’t blame those that love it for wanting/having one.
