A few months ago, PSA and FCA merged to create Stellantis, a conglomerate that now controls a wide array of brands from both groups. Since its creation, Stellantis has been seeing vigorous rearrangements to strengthen its presence around the world. This rearrangement may now lead to the SRT engineering team to be disbanded.
Dodge’s SRT division is an endless pit of absolute lunacy. The brand keeps the American formula of muscle cars alive in Dodge’s lineup, because stuffing Hellcat engines into random cars is easier than making door trim that doesn’t fall off every summer. Dodge has now decided to churn out three more cars — 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye — all ready to hand over about 800 horsepower to people with no proper training.
Jeep SRT enthusiasts can rejoice, as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has confirmed their plans for a Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee. This will sit alongside the Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat duo, but may not even be SRt-badged.
Recent rumours have popped up that the 2016 Dodge Viper SRT could get a power upgrade and a cabriolet version.
The newly-branded Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has announced a full-blown five-year plan for its extensive brand portfolio that includes Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Maserati and Ferrari. Some of the reshuffling sounds smart, a few baffling, and one a retraction of a previous decision regarding SRT.
Mopar is a name that’s well-known in the States, but not elsewhere. It started out as the brand for the Chrysler Group’s parts and accessories division. Now they are pushing hard in the the Middle East market as they aim to improve service standards and customer care, as well as offer easier access to aftermarket accessories. After the formation of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Mopar logos will now be incorporated on aftersales parts for Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep, Lancia, SRT and RAM brands. We recently had a chance to sit down with Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO for Mopar brand Service,
Most arm-chair car enthusiasts who’ve never driven legendary American powerhouses such as the constantly-cloned Shelby Cobra or the overblown Vin Diesel-spec Dodge Charger have an idealised view of such cars and lament their demise. However, a car exists today that harks back to those brutal larger-than-life super-muscle cars. It’s built by Chrysler and it’s so out-of-sync with their usual offerings that they gave it a whole separate brand now — the SRT Viper. The Viper itself has a similarly-celebrated reputation, and we found out what it’s like on the streets of Dubai.
The Fiat-Chrysler Group released two new sports coupes at this year’s Dubai Motor Show, both stunning and completely unlike each other. The SRT Viper and the Alfa Romeo 4C were officially launched, at a show stand that boasted all sorts of hot metal from Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram and Fiat-Abarth.
Less than a year into the debut of the new-generation SRT Viper, the regular models have barely hit U.S. showrooms and Chrysler Group have already brought out a special-edition. The the track-focused 2014 SRT Viper TA is being showcased at the 2013 New York International Auto Show.
Production of all-new 2013 SRT Viper only begins next month but Mopar has already created 50 add-ons to make the crazy fifth-generation of the 640 hp, 814 Nm mid-front 8.4-liter V-10 engine, American built supercar go berzerk.
