SRT has dissolved in Stellantis – DRIVE

For many years the letters SRT have served as a sign of the most “charged” Dodges, such as Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock (V8 Hemi 6.2, 818 hp, 959 N • m).

Street & Racing Technology Branch (SRT), which developed high-performance versions of the models of the FCA group, is disbanded. There were no official reports on this score. But at the request of Mopar Insiders a representative of the concern Stellantis (which was created by the merger of FCA and PSA) replied, “All the core elements of the SRT engineering team are integrated into our global engineering organization.” De facto, this means that SRT will stop working as a separate division, but its experience will not be lost when creating other models. This information is consistent with statement Dodge chapters Tim Kuniskis: “The days of the V8 6.2 cast iron block with compressor are numbered.” Kuniskis is referring to the coming electrification.

The SRT division was created in 1989 to develop the “first” Viper (it appeared in 1991) and was called Team Viper. Then there were several renames and even a short period when SRT was considered a separate brand. But then she returned to the Dodge. However, the Dodge brand did not end up with redrawing the models.

The company assured that the creation of Dodges with the SRT index will not stop, as well as the use of SRT technologies in cars of other related brands (Ram, Jeep). Will SRT’s developments be useful in projects Peugeot – dont clear. We know that the French company intends to create “Charged” versions for almost all models in its range. However, it will be a delicacy for Europe: return of the Peugeot group in the USA, it was conceived several years ago, after the merger with FCA, looks extremely unlikely. Stellantis partners will to some extent divide key regions for themselves.
