Rolling in on a wave of rumors and speculation, the Jeep Hellcat has been confirmed and has been given the green light for production. It's called Project K, and over at Fiat Chrysler they've been secretly testing the powertrain using 2016 Grand Cherokee bodies.
Fiat Chrysler released a statement declining to comment on future projects, but it seems like the Hellcat will feature the same supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 as other Hellcats, and output should remain about 707 horsepower. Mind you, that alone is more horse power than a Ferrari 458 or a Lamborghini Huracan can offer. Shifting duties will be handled with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive will be standard.
The Hellcat will also boast impressive acceleration thanks to the standard all-wheel drive it's capable of 200mph and can get from 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds. With that sort of power, you'll be leaving everyone behind in your dust in no time. The production of this very extraordinary Jeep started as a limited edition with only 2,200 cars but Fiat Chrysler decided to build at least another 1,000 cars by the end of this year.
