Stellantis final week renewed its trademark safety for the identify Tomahawk, possibly signalling that a new efficiency automobile is in the performs.

As initial mentioned by CarBuzz, the filing for trademark safety was created with the United States Patent and Trademark Workplace on June 23 for automotive applications.

There has not been a manufacturing model named Tomahawk from any of Stellantis’ manufacturers, although some readers will recall the wild Viper V-ten-powered Dodge Tomahawk motorbike idea rolled out at the 2003 Detroit car demonstrate. A lot more not too long ago, Dodge’s SRT efficiency sub-brand utilized the identify for a trio of virtual idea autos acknowledged as the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo ideas, every single powered by the exact same Viper V-ten in mixture with a hybrid program.

Need to Stellantis in fact get close to to utilizing Tomahawk on a manufacturing model, it will practically definitely be a efficiency supplying thinking about the previous applications of the identify. Stellantis is acknowledged to be operating on a number of new efficiency offerings.

1 likelihood could be the oft-rumored plug-in hybrid edition of Stellantis’ not too long ago announced Hurricane twin-turbocharged three.-liter inline-six. The engine has currently been confirmed with 500 hp in H.O. (Higher Output) guise, relying on just turbocharging, but possibly there will be an electrified Tomahawk edition with even far more electrical power to serve as the substitute for the Hellcat engine which bows out following the 2023 model yr.

A cooler alternative would be the use of the identify on Dodge’s electrical muscle vehicle due in 2024. We need to have an concept of what the electrical muscle vehicle will be named later on this yr when Dodge rolls out a operating idea edition. We could see the idea as early as August’s 2022 Woodward Dream Cruise, as Dodge is set to demonstrate us its “future muscle” at the occasion, alongside two extra reveals. Remain tuned.
