You have to admit that as soon as you read the title, you got goosebumps all over your body :-). We, surely, won’t blame you. On the contrary, we must admit that when seeing a “Hellcat” as part of a name of any car, we got, pretty much aware the fact that it is a sign that a special model is in question. variants which had a word “Hellcat” as part of a name, were truly agile beasts and have ingeniously created designs.
Unfortunately, the Chrysler Company hasn’t officially announced that slightly upgraded variant is in their plans for launching, however, the rumors have surfaced on the web from source that were right before. So, we are again, in a way, forced to believe the rumors. Well, hey, they were right numerous times before, let’s give them a fair chance, perhaps we may be surprised. Anyway, we’re strongly advising you to sit, quite comfortable, back in your favorite armchair and read this, quite honestly, been written blog post until its very end.
2017 RAM 1500 SRT Hellcat Interior, Exterior & Appearance
We assume that you’re, probably, familiar with the fact that holding the Hellcat badge must bring new styling and lots of sporty equipment. Although, it is planned that this slightly upgraded variant, initially, stay pretty the same, in terms of inner styling, however, the external appearance should be able to justify our pretty high expectations. In addition to that fact, the Chrysler, practically, must reinvent their popular pickup from the ground up, and should be able to fit its pretty massive engine.
Looking from the outside, newly restyled Ram 1500 SRT Hellcat will, undoubtedly, look more forceful and energetic, when being compared to the previous variant. One of the most visible modifications should be its front end, which should get far more scooped hood and it is even rumored that the hood will have significantly more air vents. Furthermore, the latest rumors speculate that the 2017 Ram 1500 SRT Hellcat should come along available with brand new styled grille, much more attractive designed taillights as well as headlights and another guard, in order to present the perfect finish the general overhaul.
On the other hand, the experts think that is quite logical to expect that the 2017 Ram 1500 SRT Hellcat will come along available with two different sets of wheels. For the base model, it is expected to come along equipped with 22-inch 7 spoke wheels, while, for the other trim, there will be optional 24-inch wheels. Behind those wheels, one should be able to find the well-known, remarkable Brembo brake calipers. Hardly to believe? We say-why not? Again, it features the Hellcat badge!
We have, already, pointed out that the 2017 Ram 1500 SRT Hellcat’s interior, the most probably, won’t suffer any major changes, primarily it’s going to be pretty costly, already. It is expected that the Japanese maker is going to use somehow better materials and that the base model will have lots of features and equipment, which will be, fairly, be similar to the equipment that we are able to find in the current model.
Certainly, the most important part of the every vehicle that bears Hellcat badge is the engine unit, right? Fair enough. It is planned that under to hood of the each Ram 1500 SRT Hellcat, 2017 year model, will placed all-mighty, fast&furious supercharged 6.2l V8 engine unit, which should be more than able to produce around astonishing 700 horsepower and should become available linked to an eight speed automatic transmission. In case that you’re wondering, you are right, that’s the same engine that is, currently, used in a Dodge Challenger Hellcat.
Release Date & Prices
The 2017 Ram 1500 SRT Hellcat’s general sales are expected to start in the middle of this very year and the starting price for a base model should be around $55,000.
