That somebody is Russian car news and reviews website Kolesa. They concept rendered a Dodge Challenger SUV. For what purpose? we really can’t answer that anytime soon. And we certainly can not say so in Russian, Japanese or mandarin. Indeed we can barely speak English let alone write it.
The standard entry-level V6 powered Challenger starts at $28,000. The top-spec SRT Hellcat Redeye widebody will set you back a cool $76,000. For that money, you get a 6.2-litre HEMI V8 churning out 797 HP and 707 LB-FT of Torque.
You also get Blistein Dampers and semi-active suspension and a lot more besides. But the real question is, do you need or really want a Dodge Challenger SUV? We do know Ford is going to release a Mustang-based SUV.
A Mustang inspired electric SUV sounds and will probably look crazy ass, but it’s what the market wants. And you always have to satisfy the needs of the few who will buy such a car.
As for this concept rendering, don’t expect Dodge to get into action just yet. It’s owned by Fiat and Fiat does not have the money to make such a contraption.
