Chrysler Pacifica SRT Hellcat Trim Coming In 2021?

There are few vehicles on the road like the Chrysler Pacifica, the most awarded minivan ever made. However, not many customers know that the Pacifica is built by the same company that produces the world’s fastest production muscle cars from the Dodge brand (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles). So, what would Chrysler Pacifica look like if the production team decided to swap out the 3.6-Liter V6 Pentastar engine for one of those massive and strong V8 HEMI engines instead for the Pacifica? The truth is, we already know.
Is Chrysler Building A Hellcat Pacifica?
Could the Chrysler Pacifica someday gain the power and speed of having a turbocharged V8 engine? Extremely unlikely, however, before 2020 who could have guessed the Dodge Durango, a three-row SUV, would have gained the same engine used in the Dodge SRT Hellcat muscle cars? In fact, another company that is a part of the same Fiat Chrysler Automobiles family is the Jeep brand. The Jeep brand added a V8 HEMI into the Jeep Cherokee to create the fastest Cherokee trim, the Trackhawk. So, would Chrysler go so far as to add this upgraded powertrain in the future model years of the Pacifica? No.
The Companies That Took Minivans To New Horsepower Heights
The Chrysler Pacifica minivan does more than fine with the power to haul families and luggage and storage goodies anywhere they ask. However, this wasn’t good enough for the folks at Abimelec Design. The company didn’t to add a hood with an air-intake and overhaul the entire front of the Pacifica. The ride height was also lowered to reduce drag and wider fenders were added to help complete the design appearance of this rather unique vehicle. This creation was fitted with larger wheels as well to help have a better grip with the massive power the Hellcat provides. They even added the SRT badge on the engine with the Hellcat logo.
The Hellcrate engine that packs 707 horsepower can swap into many different vehicles, but we didn’t think we’d ever see the Pacifica minivan as one of the vehicles that received this addition. The perks of the Pacifica are mainly found inside the interior, not under the hood, but this is a shocker for sure.
The First Minivan To Go Over 700 Horsepower
While, this isn’t the first time a minivan has received some acclaim for having a massive V8 engine added, Renault once introduced at the 1994 Paris Motor Show a minivan that carried a V10 engine (3.5-Liter V10 from the 1993 Willaims-Renault FW15C Formula 1 car) that hit 820 horsepower and went from 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds at a mind-bending speed of 193 mph as its top-speed. That’s likely a vehicle that will never see a production run, just like the work added to the Pacifica, but these stories are nice to read.
