Spied: Chrysler 300 SRT to live on?
Despite reviews to the opposite, Fiat-Chrysler Vehicles may not be quite able to pull the plug on the Chrysler 300 SRT.
Following FCA's statement the standalone SRT manufacturer would be rolled back under Dodge, the futurity of the Chrysler-brand-Ed 300 SRT was promptly put in question. FCA even openly said the 300 SRT wouldn't be back for 2015.Yet, a brand new round of spy photographs suggests the 300 SRT may re-join the Chrysler line for 2016. This model, seen testing near Detroit, has all the tell-tale hints of an upgraded 300 SRT, including beefy Brembo brakes as well as an SRT badge. Of course it is feasible that Chrysler could re-brand its high performance 300 to prevent a naming snafu completely. As an example, all the standard SRT goodies may be offered as a choice on the 300S version. If the next 300 SRT, or whatever it ends up being called, follows the exact same pattern as the Dodge Charger SRT, we are able to anticipate a 485 hp 6.4L V-8 backed by an 8-speed automated transmission. The 300 also stands to embrace the Charger's adaptive suspension system.A Hellcat edition of the 300 would have been a welcome addition, but that product is dubious at best. If Chrysler does determined to give the greenlight to the 300 SRT, locate the muscle-car to debut both this year or next. Read Source
