I'm sure it will have some nice stickers too.

the engine is reportedly more powerful than those of the GT500 or Z28; and will be coupled to an eight-speed automatic or a (probably Tremec) manual shifter.
I would be shocked if that is true - leave the Z28 out because that barely has more power than the current SRT8

But more power than the GT500 would make it the most powerful V8 out there

The supercharged 6.2 Hemi is due to be shown early in calendar year 2014, with an estimated (by us) 640-680 horsepower. It will have MDS (with the automatic transmission, not the manual) and will use a clutched pulley for the supercharger.

We have been told by several sources that the internal target is 700, and while we don’t believe the target will be reached when they get around to publishing SAE net figures, it’s beginning to look as though it’ll at least be in the mid-600s horsepower. Based on the capabilities of the ZF eight-speed automatic this engine will be hooked up to, we’re estimating a peak of 640 pound-feet to stay within the 900 Nm capacity of the 8HP90.

“fargo59” wrote that it shares heads with the Apache 6.4. which may also indicate a large bore, short stroke design (6.4 is 4.090” bore, 6.1 was 4.055”). A 4.090” bore with a 3.58” stroke would be 376 cubic inches, or 6.16 liters. “A 6.4 with a forged 5.7 crankshaft would give the right dimensions and be relatively easy to work; a shorter stroke is also going to give the idea rod to stroke ratio and make it a high revving engine.”

The Apache heads are similar in flow # to the GM LSA heads used on their blown 6.2L. So this will come down to boost numbers. The Chevy only uses 9 psi to peg 580 HP, and Ford uses 15 psi to hit 662 in the Shelby.

If Dodge even went to 12psi with that top end it'll easily be in the 600's and 700's are by all means possible. At this point it doesn't matter what the factory HP is, all you'll need is a smaller pulley and a tune to make stupid power with it.
