SRT 6.2L HellCat Hemi to start production in April?

Saw this posted eleswhere.

We’ve just learned that the SRT Supercharged 6.2L HellCat hemi will begin production this coming April.

The engine is also scheduled to be used in the Dodge Charger SRT8, Dodge Challenger SRT8 (Final Edition of the current car) and Chrysler 300 SRT8. The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 isn’t as of yet scheduled to receive the engine, but it can’t be far behind as it “arguably” needs it the most to beat the 560+ HP Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Mercedes ML63 AMG and BMW x5M at their own games.

Hopefully the WK2 will not be too far behind in getting this.

Read the same about April production, also heard online through "inside sources" lol that the Jeep is no where near being on the list yet for receiving the engine. Possibly for 2015, who knows.

I'm sure the bean counters are less than enthused at the idea of putting that power through an awd setup
