2016 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Review

Oct 5, 2015
2016 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Review



The proper way to test the Hellcat would be to build a time machine, set it to “1974,” polish up the mood ring, drive to an Esso station, buy gas at 49 cents a gallon and screech around Korvettes’ parking lot.

Alas, it’s 2015 and thus my test took place in a progressive, high-end burb where hybrids rule and people look at you and your $70,865 Hellcat as though you’re a sociopath personally responsible for global warming, mercury in their salmon and the cigarette butt they saw that morning on the turnpike when they pulled over to check if their Prius was getting 49.9 miles to the gallon or actually 50.

Which is what makes this a fun ride. We know the internal combustion vehicle is a 19th century invention and is going the way, sooner or later, of silent movies, the mimeograph and beepers.

Ditto that belching, thirsty ride in your garage, and ditto the thirsty Charger SRT Hellcat. Screech today, for tomorrow we have self-driving cars, cars that chug no petrol, and the obscene carnage on our nation’s highways finally, at long last, plunges to reasonable levels or is even eliminated. This thing gets 15 miles to the gallon. That’s what my mother’s 1974 Duster 340 got – in 1974.

Review: 2016 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat



Review: 2016 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

Published on Nov 11, 2015

When Graeme Fletcher drove the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, he watched the onboard dyno climb to 695 horsepower.


Always one who's up for a challenge (no pun intended), Dan Ilika decided to see what he could squeeze out of that car's four-door sibling, the Charger SRT Hellcat.

Two days, countless runs and a whole lot of 94-octane fuel later, and the results were enough to speak for themselves.

2016 Hellcat Challenger and Charger Popping Up

11/15/2015



Quote:
I am a long time Mopar fan and I belong to a long list of Mopar fan pages on Facebook. Over the past year, I would occasionally see car salesmen posting about available Hellcat cars, but those cars were almost always equipped with the manual transmission and they were sparsely scattered across the USA.

However, over the past month or so, I have seen a massive influx of available Hellcat Challenger and Chargers being posted on the various Facebook pages. Most notably, I have seen car salesmen posting Hellcat Challengers with the 8-speed automatic transmission which are available for sale, which was nearly impossible to find earlier this year. Also, with the Hellcat Charger rolling out late in 2015 when the Hellcat Challenger had already eaten up the stock of both Hellcat Hemi engines and the heavy duty 8-speed automatic transmission, the Hellcat Charger was nearly impossible to find earlier this year.

This means that for the first time, someone who didn’t want to preorder a 2015 Dodge Challenger or Charger can now hunt around and buy a new Dodge with the supercharged Hellcat engine and the 8-speed automatic transmission. The Hellcat Challenger with the manual transmission continues to be available as well, but the Hellcat cars in the highest demand are now available around the country.

For example, there is currently a 2016 Charger SRT Hellcat in Plum Crazy purple on eBay with a buy it now price of $76,135. The listing includes a photoshopped image of the window sticker with that price displayed, along with a base price of $65,945 and $5,190 worth of options and fees. This should equal $71,135, but the dealership has obviously marked the car up by $5,000 – which is a very average markup for these uber popular muscle cars right now. The location of this vehicle isn’t listed, but in searching the phone number listed in the account, this Plum Crazy Hellcat Charger is in the possession of the AutoServ Dealer Group in Tilton, New Hampshire.

So, if you have been waiting to buy a 2016 Dodge Challenger or Charger with the Hellcat Hemi engine, now is a great time to begin shopping around your local dealerships, as the 707hp muscle cars are more available now than they have ever been in the past.

Go Mango: NEW Exterior Paint

Go Mango: Dodge Launches Modernized Exterior Heritage Color for 2016 Challenger and Charger SRT Muscle Cars

Dodge continues to answer enthusiast demand with the latest heritage-inspired exterior paint color
Dealers can begin ordering Go Mango immediately on Charger and Challenger SRT models


March 14, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -



“Plum Crazy” purple, “B5 Blue” and “Sublime” green Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars have recently been streaming out of FCA US’ Brampton Assembly Plant, bringing a sense of nostalgia and powerful bursts of high-impact paint color to highways and dragstrips across the country.

Now, new for spring 2016 and shown for the first time this past weekend at the 11th annual Spring Festival in Irvine, Calif., Dodge is expanding its color palette with a new, modernized version of Go Mango exterior paint on 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT models. Dealers can begin ordering Go Mango immediately.

Go Mango was first introduced by Dodge on the iconic 1970 Challenger. Following a limited production run in 2006 on specific Charger R/T Daytona models, and more recently featured on the 2016 Dodge Dart, the next generation of the legendary and limited-edition exterior hue combines orange and red tones into a high-impact color that showcases the legendary Dodge performance attitude.

“Powerful performance cars like our Dodge Charger and Challenger demand high-impact colors,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Dodge muscle cars have a long history of unique paint colors with iconic names, and we’ll continue to reach back into our paint code archive to give our enthusiast customers what they want.”

Go Mango is now available exclusively on the following 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger models:

Challenger SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat – dealers orders open immediately

Charger SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat – dealers orders open immediately


About the 2016 Dodge Challenger
The Dodge and SRT brands offer the most complete lineup of muscle cars in the market, including the 2016 Dodge Challenger SXT with its standard powerful and fuel-efficient Pentastar V-6 engine combined with the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission that delivers 305 horsepower and an estimated 30 miles per gallon on the highway; the 2016 Dodge Challenger R/T with the high-torque 5.7-liter HEMI® paired with the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual transmission; and the 6.4-liter HEMI Challenger R/T Scat Pack that delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque with the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual. The 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 adds six-piston Brembo® front brakes, adaptive damping suspension and SRT Drive Modes to the same 6.4-liter naturally-aspirated HEMI powerplant while the Challenger SRT Hellcat with its 707 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 engine is most powerful and fastest muscle car ever.

About the 2016 Dodge Charger

As the most successful four-door fastback-styled muscle car on the market, the aggressively styled 2016 Dodge Charger remains in a class of its own, delivering performance, technology and refinement thanks to its TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that is standard on every model – from the SE to the SXT, R/T, R/T Road & Track, R/T Scat Pack, SRT 392 and the SRT Hellcat. The 2016 Charger also offers a full range of fuel-efficient and powerful engine options, including the award-winning 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar engine, which delivers up to 31 highway miles per gallon (mpg) on SE and SXT models; the legendary 370-horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 on the R/T; the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8, which punches out a best-in-class, naturally aspirated 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque in the SRT 392 and R/T Scat Pack models and the 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine. The Charger SRT Hellcat delivers ultimate performance with 707 horsepower, 650 lb.-ft. of torque, a top speed of 204 miles per hour, and a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA)-certified, quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.0 seconds on street tires, making it the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world.

Want to live a Happier Life? Buy a Hellcat

Want to live a Happier Life? Buy a Hellcat

April 25, 2016



There are normal cars, there are sports cars, and then there’s the Dodge SRT Hellcat, whether it’s the grocery-hauling Charger, or the epitome of the muscle car—the Challenger, you truly can’t go wrong with either one.

Never ending smiles, villain-style laughter, wide eyes, and the squirming and screaming (of happiness or fear) of your passengers, will indeed make you one of the happiest people alive. If you don’t think so, ask your rich and badass neighbor to let you hit the start-button of his bad boy. The violent sound wave explosion of the tail pipes, combined with the slight but authoritative “torque-flex” that shakes the car, will make you a believer in no-time.




Quote:


I recently spent some time daily-driving a Hellcat Challenger, and such experience will forever stay with me. I’ve driven most of the Ferrari line up, a few Lamborghinis, and even plebeian Porsches, but the Hellcat is on a league of its own. In fact, if you think the Hellcat is nothing but a clumsy and overweight American muscle car (I hear that a lot), you should drive one, and then jump off a cliff as an apology.

A massive and aesthetically beautiful 6.2 liter supercharged V8 Hemi motor lays low in the engine bay, and although it’s not as artistic as a hand-signed Mercedes AMG engine, it sure is more powerful than anything from Affalterbach. Power goes to the rear wheels only, as it should, and perhaps the most beautiful thing about the Hellcat is—its drivability. It’s smooth, relatively quiet, and shall I dare call it—refined?



See, it’s not easy to tame a 707 horsepower beast, even when you tap the “slower” mode which grants you only 500 horsepower, it’s fast and violent, but it’s manageable, and it highlights the world-class level of engineering that FCA put into it. Its TorqueFlite 8 speed automatic transmission is one of the smoothest and best responding gearboxes I’ve ever worked with, and should take most of the credit for making the Hellcat an easy-to-operate super car.



All in all, respect the Hellcat, because even with its many high-tech nannies, it could potentially send you to hell in a heart beat.
