Mopar have just released a teaser video ahead of the 2018 SEMA show titled, ‘Something Big Is Coming.’ That ‘something big’ could have something to do with the first generation Dodge Charger as featured in the video clip.
The video starts off with what looks like two fiery cat paw prints, which then seem to be stood on by what looks like two elephant imprints or at least that’s what it looks like to me. A first-generation Dodge Charger then comes into view and then the ubiquitous Mopar logo, with a link to crateHemi.com. Could this be a reference to Chrysler’s old 426ci. Hemi V8 which was nicknamed the ‘elephant engine’ which only found its way into the Dodge Coronet, Dart and Plymouth Fury.
At this point, if you visit the crateHemi.com website it gives away nothing more than the teaser video with text saying that all will be revealed at this years SEMA show. No giveaways there.
Therefore, it may be likely that a 426 Hemi V8 maybe a new offering from Mopar, especially with SEMA being a hotbed for after markets customised vehicles. Having the cat-like paw prints show on the bottom of the elephant prints may mean this new engine is based on the hellcat engine, at the least taking most of its DNA. Very likely with the popularity of the engine.
With the SEMA show fast approaching on October 30th, we don’t have long to wait before all is revealed.
