Dodge Viper May Get Supercharged V10 Engine

If you thought the 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was powerful, wait until we tell you the rumors we’ve heard this week. Apparently, Dodge might be working to produce a Viper with a supercharged V10 engine, which could bring the performance vehicle’s power up to a whopping 800 hp.

If rumors are right, we might see the Viper supercharged with a V10 engine; increasing its horsepower to 800!

Automotive journalists at Allpar have had at least two sources confirm that supercharged V10 engines were recently delivered to Chrysler Group.

Currently, the Viper offers 640 hp when outfitted with its naturally-aspirated 8.4-liter V10 engine. Adding the supercharged power could raise that already impressive number by 120 horsepower. That is, of course, if the transmission, block, and other internal parts could handle all that power. We wouldn’t be surprised if the new engine requires the automaker to re-configure its current mechanics.

We at Corwin Dodge will keep our ears peeled for any more news or hints as to what the new Dodge Viper could have in store for performance enthusiasts. For now, we’ll be dreaming of 800 hp.

The Viper Returns to the Dodge Vehicle Lineup for 2015

Chrysler has some big plans for the next couple of years. You might have heard already how the automaker plans to discontinue the Dodge Grand Caravan after 2016 and focus all their minivan attention on the Town & Country. Sad news for us here at Corwin Dodge, but Chrysler made it up to us in a big way. The company recently announced they will be ending the SRT brand, which means the Viper will once again be in the Dodge vehicle lineup for 2015.

Dodge Vehicle Lineup for 2015
Thanks to some unfortunate discontinuations, the Dodge Viper SRT, like this one, will still be in the Dodge vehicle lineup for 2015.

The Viper is currently the only vehicle in the SRT brand, but it will slide back into the Dodge brand and immediately become the premium sports car model in the lineup. The Viper was housed under the Dodge umbrella previously, from 1993 to 2010, and now it comes home for 2015.

The current SRT Viper boasts impressive performance numbers like a top speed of 206 mph and a powertrain with 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque, and we’re sure that Chrysler has some great plans to make the Viper even more impressive and fun for its homecoming to the Dodge brand.
