Dodge could be readying its wildest Hellcat yet.

Although unconfirmed at this stage, it appears the Dodge Durango SUV could be treated to a full-on Hellcat makeover.

Keen-eyed fans of The Fast and Furious spotted the Hellcat crossover in the Dodge House of Power advertisement (below), sparking speculation from fans the seven-seat SUV could be launched with a 527kW supercharged V8 engine.

We don't get a proper look at the high-performance SUV but the video appears to show the Hellcat badge on the Durango's flanks, followed by a shot of a hard-charging crossover accelerating through the night.

It doesn't appear to be a Charger or Challenger, given the taller wheel arches and higher-profile tyres shown in the video.

Fiat Chrysler has a history of stuffing the Hellcat's engine into SUVs, too – the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk shares its 527kW engine with the Charger and Challenger Hellcat.

At the moment the Durango is offered to American buyers in a range of trims trims, starting with a 215kW 3.6-litre V6 and topping out with the SRT version packing a 354kW 6.4-litre V8 engine.
