    350, but yeah. Same bore, stroke, bore spacing, main bearings, seals, all kinds of stuff. Unique crank to make it fire evenly across 6 cylinders instead of 8, but it was essentially a 350 with two cylinders lopped off the end.

    I think it was the 350 with two cylinders lopped off, the 4.3 still had a 4.0" bore I believe. So all the connecting rods, pistons, lifters, water pump etc. were the same. It was a pretty cheap and easy way to engineer a new engine, and it was a pretty good one too.

    Anyway, back to the fast SUVs.

    They're coming out with a Durango Hellcat for 2021. From a practical standpoint it has 3-rows of seating and 8700lb tow capacity. That, and no one will expect a 710hp motor under the hood of that thing. But I'm sure I'm one of the few that like that kind of stuff.
