Dodge’s performance arm, SRT, transplants the supercharged iron block HEMI V8 from this summer’s ludicrous 707-horsepower Challenger Hellcat — the most powerful and fastest American muscle car ever built — and shoehorns it into their four-door full-size sedan.

Benz's new entry level SUV knows it has a lot to prove
