The Jeep Wrangler is among individuals charismatic cars, however a pure off-road vehicle that continues to be in keeping with its fundamental concepts which using the recently presented Gladiator have a spectacular open-box pick-up version, longer but comparable to 4x4.
The developed versions of the off-road vehicles are often focused precisely with that, off-road driving, however a version with increased visceral aspirations encrusting the V8 engine of Hellcat might be going ahead. There's room but additionally an issue.
Yes, you read that right. Within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles the possibility of launching an amphetaminated version of the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator had been considered, equipping the large SUVs with the 6.2-liter V8 engine of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, that is, with no less than 717 hp .
The information comes from the brand itself because Tim Kuniskis, head of Jeep in North America, has stated that the Challenger SRT Hellcat engine goes "like a glove" to the vain engine of the Wrangler and Gladiator. This statement is very risky for a project that would not come to anything.
So we know the American tastes which is enough that there's enough space underneath the hood to support an infinitely more effective engine compared to standard outfitted, but there's a significant problem. When the brand introduced the Hellcat block within the Jeep, which inserts, what it wouldn't leave could be space for that necessary impact absorption zones, so Kuniskis themself could be discarding simultaneously a higher-performance Wranglar / Gladiator.
The standard origin of the myth. Thus was created the Volkswagen Golf, which turns 45 today.
But this does not necessarily mean that Jeep is not going to release an enhanced version of Gladiator (and the passing Wrangler). In fact, the firm would be working on giving a new direction to its pick-up that at the moment will be equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and a power of less than 300 hp.

Recall that Jeep has already done the same with the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk capable of launching at 100 km / h from standstill in 3.5 seconds, liquidate the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 290 km / h while burn gasoline to buckets.
Something is up to FCA, we just need to know what. It could be a turbocharged V6, a six in line of forced aspiration ... For asking we would ask for a V8, but someone has gone ahead to FCA because a Wrangler with Hellcat engine was already on sale for almost 300,000 dollars a few months ago.
