Dodge Challenger Hellcat Drag Pack Coming in 2019 With 725 HP

Dodge Challenger Hellcat Drag Pack Coming in 2019 With 725 HP

Feb 26, 2018

New spy photos could lend credence to rumors claiming a 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Drag Pack may be offered for the 2019 model year.

Insider information, some of which was first shared on our forum, helped spark rumors that Dodge will be offering a Drag Pack option on the Challenger Hellcat for 2019. Now prototypes for the drag race-focused Hellcat have been photographed undergoing testing. The prototypes feature the narrow body of the Challenger Hellcat, but with the Air Grabber hood from the Demon. Word is the Challenger Hellcat Drag Pack will receive about 75% of the content offered on the Demon, and will also get a slight bump in output from 707 hp to around 725 hp.

There are several components from the Demon that could be offered on a standard Hellcat to make it more appealing speed-crazy customers without adding too much extra cost. These include the aforementioned Air Grabber hood along with the sticky Nitto tires, liquid-to-air charge air cooler chiller system and perhaps even fancier items like the Torque Reserve function and TransBrake. We also hear there will be a ‘Drag Mode’ option in the UConnect system and that Drag Pack-equipped cars will have a taller final drive ratio than standard Hellcats.

A Dodge Challenger Hellcat Drag Pack isn’t too surprising of a product. Dodge will be selling the Challenger for a few more years, so it’s wise to offer customers something new for the ageing two-door. We’ve also already seen Demon equipment trickle through the rest of the Challenger range with the Hellcat Widebody, and a Challenger Drag Pack allows Dodge to capitalize on the hype it drummed up for the Demon even more than it already has.

The Demon-inspired Challenger Hellcat Drag Pack should make its debut sometime this year before arriving at dealers in late 2018 as 2019 model year vehicles. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.


Nitro Year: 2007 (1 of 91,815 sold in 07)
Nitro Model: R/T 4X4 Stone White
CAT-BACK Exhaust, CAI, Projector Head Lamps
Fully-Equipped w/all factory options
