2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

The Hellcat is a version of the 2015 Dodge Challenger with a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI engine rated at 707 hp (527 kW) and 650 lbˇft (881 Nˇm) of torque. This engine is also available in the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. The inner driving light on the left front has been removed to allow air to get into the engine resulting in more torque, and the wheel wells are different from the standard SRT to accommodate the 20-inch aluminum wheels. The SRT Hellcat will come equipped with two separate key fobs; use of the "black" fob will limit engine output to 500 horsepower, while the "red" fob will enable the full output capability.  The Hellcat has a quarter mile time of 10.85 seconds; this was accomplished with street legal drag tires. On stock tires the Hellcat was able to achieve 11.2 seconds @ 125 mph on the quarter mile.

The European-spec Hellcat is capable of 0–62 mph (0–100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, 0–124 mph (0–200 km/h) in 10.7 seconds,[40] and 0–186 mph (0–300 km/h) in 38 seconds (although the speedometer appeared to be inaccurate by 10-15km/h).

More Power - 707 Horsepower, 650 LB.-FT. Torque
Quarter Mile - 10.8 seconds
0-60 MPH - low 3-second range
Top Track Speed - 199 mph

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT only produces 485 power unit and 475 lb-ft of torsion from a naturally aspirated vi.4-liter V-8.  The supercharged vi.2-liter V-8, is the most powerful V-8 engine ever made by Chrysler.

Dodge says there are over two hundred attainable drive-mode mixtures with the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat. The automobile even comes with a red key fob that unlocks the engine's full potential. If you are wanting to safeguard your 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat from an brave valet (or teenager), use the black key fob that limits power to five hundred horsepower, and enter your four-digit PIN code to place the automobile in Valet Mode, that limits the automobile to 4000 RPM, it upshifts sooner than traditional, disables the steering-wheel paddle shifters on automatic-transmission models, eliminates the Drive Mode picks (Default, Sport, Track, and Custom), keeps the steadiness management fully on, and disables launch management.

Braking starts with 15.4-inch BremboŽ two-piece front brake rotors. These robust plates are optimized for performance, and the two-piece modular design aids heat dissipation to facilitate effective and repeatable cooling. Standard equipment for the world’s fastest muscle car.

The Challenger SRT Hellcat also spent 35 percent more time in the wind tunnel to achieve maximum aerodynamics.

An all-new, driver-focused interior invites you in and takes you to a new level of performance luxury with aluminum trim, seats wrapped in your choice of Nappa leather with AlcantaraŽ inserts or ultra-premium Laguna leather. To ensure maximum comfort, heated and ventilated seats and a 360-degree heated steering wheel are standard.

Gas-charged adjustable shock absorbers set to increase rebound and compression rates for maximum handling feel.

For optimized traction under road course conditions, such as track day. The TRACK setting mitigates wheel spin, improves control, while helping to put power on the ground in corners.

Powertrain remain unchanged, with both Hellcat models getting the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine that puts out 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.

The 2015 model was available for as low as $60,000, which means it was cheaper than most of its competitors. This is in fact the first Hellcat ever built and there hasn’t been a previous car to compare it to. However, there is going to be a small facelift of this car with the 2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. This will only bring minor improvements to it as well as it will offer a few tweaks in order to make the car behave better on the track and on the road.  The front end of the car will get a new bumper which is going to have a pair of LED fog lights that are not going to take from the intake area but in fact they will be integrated into the pillars of the splitter. This will also give it the effect of a snake, from what the people at Dodge said.

The interior will receive a small bump in material’s quality. In fact, the older one used hard plastic on the dashboard but the Dodge Challenger Hellcat 2016 is going to use soft touch plastic, leather and a first in the range, aluminum. The design on the other hand is going to remain unchanged.

Under the hood of the 2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat there is going to be the same 6.2-liter supercharged V8 which is going to deliver 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. However, these are only the official numbers. In many cases, stock cars tested on the dyno, made as much as 740 horsepower or more at the crankshaft which is quite a rare case these days. The performance will be on par with the rest of the cars in its class, so the top speed will most likely hit 200 MPH while the 0 to 60 MPH time for the 8-speed automatic transmission will drop to 3.3 seconds thanks to new gearbox software

Hellcat represents a nice addition to the good old Challenger line up that’s been around since 1959. During that time it became one of the iconic American cars. The 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is a future model of the new sportier Challenger. Production of this model need to be continued since, GM will definitely try to over-power current Hellcat with adding Corvette Z06 LT4 engine to the new Chevrolet Camaro line up, so there’s no way that Dodge will drip this race.

The starting price for the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will be $62,495, up $2,500 from last year’s model. The Charger will also get a bump to $65,945, representing a premium of $1,950 over the 2015 model year.


The 2019 supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 generates 797 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque in the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, making it the most powerful production V-8 now that Dodge has stopped production of the Demon. It has an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Challenger Redeye is now the quickest muscle car with a claimed 0-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 10.8 seconds at 131 mph with a top speed of 203 mph. The Demon, capable of 840 hp and 770 lb-ft on high-octane race fuel, has a claimed 0-to-60 mph in 2.3 seconds. Its 3,300-unit production run ended in May, 2018.

It does not have the Demon's Drag mode suspension tuning for weight transfer on launch or TransBrake which mechanically locks the output shaft of the transmission as the throttle goes up to build and hold more power for launch in Drag mode, but the Redeye does have line lock.

Like the Hellcat, the Redeye is not a special edition or limited run, and expect the Redeye to only account for 7 to 8 percent of total Hellcat sales.

The Redeye goes into production in Brampton, Ontario, in fall of 2018 for delivery by the end of the year. It will top the 2019 Challenger lineup that still includes the SRT Hellcat, which boosts its performance to 717 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque. That is made possible with a new dual-snorkel hood that pays homage to muscle cars from the mid-'60s and early '70s and is fully functional, providing maximum air intake. The left snorkel goes straight into the induction system and allows the engine to give the extra 10 hp.

The previous bulging aluminum hood from the Hellcat migrates to the Scat Pack for '19. Dodge is also making the widebody available on the Scat Pack for the first time. The R/T Scat Pack Widebody shares the same fender flares as the SRT Hellcat Widebody, which add 3.5 inches to the overall width and is shod with Pirelli P Zero 305/35ZR20 tires mounted to 20 x 11-inch forged Devil's Rim aluminum wheels. Also for '19, Challenger GT RWD and R/T models get a standard high-performance suspension.
