      Take away: there was once a car with less power than a one-horse pulled car...🤔

    11. Benjamin Joseph Bruner

      GM and Ford: "We're entering the age of electric vehicles" Dodge: "Let's put a Hellcat V8 in literally ***everything***" I'm a Chevy boy, but the Dodge camp has a lot of appeal right now 😅

    12. D MAS

      @Donut Media roadkills blasphemi bel air

    16. Philip James Rojo

      I could imagine the Hellephant engine used in a US Presidential vehicle or in an Ambulance. That would be insane.😲😲😲👌👌👌

    17. Jordan Weimer

      My neighbor had a '58 Imperial convertible that he used to roll out every spring. It was the single longest car I have ever seen. It had seats that pivot out so you don't flash people when you're wearing a skirt.

    18. Smg9 Kirby clarity 23

      What if they made a Cummins diesel hemi I bet that thing would have a lot of torque and probably would have more horsepower than the average sports car

      1. Smg9 Kirby clarity 23

        Also buff horses for life

    19. Hello77770u

      The b-engine also called the wedge, nah i'll just call it the bengine.

    20. Willem Kloet

      James: "Imagine the thinnest steel you've ever seen in your life." Me: Thinks of the thinnest piece of metal on a feeler gauge that is so thin you can bend it with 3 fingers James: "Thinner" Me: ... ... ... How?

    35. Vinnie Fecko

      RAM CHARGERS 🙌🙌🙌🙌

    36. Benedikt Theobald

      Fiat isnt part of Dodge, it's the other way around Dodge is part of Fiat S.p.A. along with SRT and RAM Trucks.

    37. Arizona Ranger

      I love how he uses Chevy chase for Chevrolet lol

    38. Steve Haines

      Does anyone else picture Joe Dirt sayin: "muh hemmy!" throughout this episode??

    39. Maxi

      10:00 it sounds like the roar of a lion.

    40. Human Being

      The 2.6 was the high trim option, but actually the worse engine. The eventually standard option 2.2 may have made a few less hp, but much more reliable and eventually turbos solved that

    41. Alon Korenblit

      I was born in 2003

    42. Frejdyn Jarrett

      Aksed what of the hemi?

    43. Tracker Wolff

      The 426 hemi is a 6.9 l and all these newer hemis are only 6.1 and 6.2 L engines..... They're not the same 6.9 L that they once were. In fact the 7 L LS7 in the c6 06 Corvette is actually the closest thing to the same displacement in a big block V8 that is on the market. I want a true 426 hemi.... Not these cut down models

    44. Orlin Martinez

      My friend has a straight pipe 2008 c hemi Chrysler and boy does it sound like a beauty

    45. Paul O'Neal

      The 426 was the only real hemi...

    46. Izach Barcalow

      "IdK a TaUruS"🤣🤣🤣

    47. Johnny Mason

      What do you think about the upcoming 2022 Dodge Charger Hellcat Ghoul with the Hellephant 1000hp Hemi V8 engine? I consider it necessary overkill!

    48. Fredtheredhead9

      Ur so gay

    49. Der Führer

      My dad has the hellcat red eye, how do I get that awesome Christmas sweater for him?!?

    50. Gilbirt Bennett

    62. Master

      side valve you mean flat head?

    63. Just Nerp

      I thought this frickin video was about Dodge? WHEN DOES DODGE SHOW UP???

    64. transparent trash

      Everyone complains about challengers not being able to handle. I feel like the big, boxy, heavy, design adds to that old classic muscle feel. I think the scat pack with the 6 speed is the perfect modern MUSCLE car. Big and heavy, lots of power from a big hemi V8. No supercharges or turbos just raw engine roar. Still the same beautiful cruising car. It never was meant to take corners at high speeds and put times on the track. It was built to give you the best muscle car experience.

    65. Dongol McStrongol

      The Helephant made me happy

    66. Mr Jean Deaux

      10:54 - enough legroom for your legs AND the engine block, for when it inevitably comes through the bulkhead, following a head-on collision, or rear-ending another vehicle.

    67. Mr Jean Deaux

      _That_ sweatshirt _is_ outstanding, _sir._ 🤘😝👌

    68. JD Bennett

      That’s not a chest tat it’s a gut tat

    90. McKeithan Smith III

      I briefly switched from Chevy to Dodge for 5yrs just to say I owned a Hemi. I had a 2005 Dodge Durango with the 5.7 Hemi. Fun truck for sure.

    91. SuperTyfon173
