The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is capable of reaching 60 mph from a standstill in a whopping 2.9 seconds.

10/07/2014




One of the most impressive performance sedans out there, the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, is ending up in our news once again, with some new performance details. According to the guys from Torque News, when equipped with drag tires, the model in question is capable of reaching 60 mph (96 km/h) in a whopping 2.9 seconds, which is significantly faster than the one equipped with street legal tires, which can do it in 3.7 seconds.

With the performance rubber on its feet, the four-door vehicle can run the quarter mile in just 10.7 seconds, while with stock tires, it can do it in 11 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 328 km/h (204 mph). The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat has taken the crown or the world’s most powerful production sedan from the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG, which has 625 HP. The American car is packing 707 HP (527 kW) and 880 Nm (650 lb-ft) of torque from a 6.2 liter V8 engine and it has been officially unveiled just a few months ago.

2015 Dodge Charger SRT 392

2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat



Dodge is bringing two new SRT models to market in 2015: the new 707-horsepower 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and the 485-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT 392, the “ultimate performance” variants of the world’s only four-door muscle car.

“For the last eight years, a large part of the Dodge Charger’s successful formula has been its many personalities for a family capable sedan depending on how the customer chooses to equip their car,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO — Dodge and SRT Brands. “Now our 2015 Charger SRT lineup sets its advanced muscle car personality apart by offering unrivaled capabilities in our ultimate performance sedans.”

The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT models will be built at the Brampton, Ontario, Assembly Plant. Production of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is slated to begin in the first quarter of 2015.

Awe-inspiring powertrains; largest brakes ever offered in a Chrysler Group vehicle
The new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is powered by the new supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® V-8 engine. Its 707 horsepower matches the highest rating of any V-8 engine in Chrysler Group’s celebrated history – that of the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat – making it the quickest, fastest and most powerful production sedan in the world, as well as the most capable and technologically advanced four-door muscle car in America.

The unrivaled four-door performance numbers tell an impressive story with an NHRA-certified, quarter mile in 11.0 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in under 13 seconds, and a top speed of 204 mile per hour (mph).

The all-new supercharged V-8 engine is mated to the beefy new TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission.

This new Hellcat engine is Dodge and SRT’s first application of V-8 supercharger technology, featuring a forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearing surfaces. The result is a crank so well-engineered it can withstand firing pressures of 110 bar (1,595 psi) – the equivalent of five family sedans standing on each piston, every two revolutions. And its unique, specially tuned crank damper has been tested to 13,000 rpm.

High-strength, forged-alloy pistons, developed using advanced telemetry measurement, are coupled to powder-forged connecting rods with high-load-capacity bushings and diamond-like-carbon-coated piston pins.

The supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 has premium-grade, heat-treated aluminum-alloy cylinder heads, which are optimized for superior thermal conductivity. And its die-cast aluminum rocker covers are HEMI Orange.

The newly announced 2015 Dodge Charger SRT 392 model also gets a power boost as horsepower climbs to 485 from 470 for the 392 cubic-inch HEMI V-8, while peak torque jumps to 475 lb.-ft. from
470 lb.-ft.

Standard on both 2015 Charger SRT models is the largest front-brake package ever offered in a Chrysler Group vehicle, which was first introduced on the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat, featuring all-new 390-mm (15.4-inch) Brembo two-piece rotors with six-piston calipers for outstanding heat management and thermal capacity and longevity.

The naturally aspirated 392 cubic inch HEMI V-8 is mated to the TorqueFlite 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission.

All-new Drive Modes tailor the driving experience to each individual driver
Whether its on-road or on-track, Dodge Charger SRT owners can personalize their drive experience via the all-new Drive Modes feature. Drive Modes tailor the driving experience by controlling horsepower, transmission shift speeds, paddle shifters, traction and suspension. Drive Modes are pre-configured for Sport, Track and Default settings, while the Custom setting lets the driver customize the drive experience to their favorite settings.

Custom — Allows the driver to personalize the vehicle’s performance
Sport — Delivers increased vehicle performance capability over the Default Mode
Track — Delivers maximum vehicle performance capability on smooth, dry surfaces
Default — Activates automatically when starting the vehicle
Eco — Maximizes fuel economy with a revised shift schedule, pedal map and second-gear starts




The Drive Modes feature is controlled through the Uconnect system and may be accessed by performing any of the following:

Pushing the SRT button on the instrument panel switch bank
Selecting “Drive Modes” from the “SRT & Apps” menu
Selecting “Drive Modes” from within the Performance Pages menu


Unlocking the power
The all-new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat comes standard with two key fobs – red and black. The red key fob is the only key that can unlock the full horsepower and torque potential of the SRT Hellcat engine, while the black key fob limits the driver to a reduced engine output.

When Valet mode is activated, the following vehicle configurations are enabled:

Engine is remapped to significantly reduce horsepower and torque; limited to 4,000 rpm
Transmission locks out access to first gear and upshifts earlier than normal
Transmission will treat the manual shifter position the same as the drive position
Traction, steering and suspension are set to their Street settings
Steering-wheel paddle shifters are disabled
Drive Mode functions are disabled
Electronic stability control (ESC) is enabled to Full-on
Launch control is disabled


The driver can activate and deactivate Valet mode on Dodge Charger SRT 392 and Hellcat models with a four-digit PIN code they create.

Sinister, functional exterior design
Inspired by its performance-enthusiast roots when Charger first launched more than 45 years ago, the new Charger successfully pays homage to past muscle cars while offering distinctly modern all-new exterior and interior appointments.

The Dodge and SRT design teams build upon the 2015 Dodge Charger’s new modern four-door fastback coupe’s already iconic exterior styling by adding a sinister-looking, unique front fascia, hood, rear fascia and spoiler.



The new exterior of the 2015 Dodge Charger is spiritually inspired by the iconic second-generation Charger from the late 1960s, and for 2015, specifically draws its cues from the 1969 model. With its rear-wheel-drive (RWD) platform and proven power, the Charger’s modern take on old-school muscle is sure to resonate with today’s enthusiasts.

Up front, the Charger SRT Hellcat receives the larger, power-bulge aluminum hood, which features a dedicated cold-air intake – a visual styling cue from the first Viper coupe built in 1996 – and dual air extractors to ensure effective removal of heat and reduced air turbulence in the engine compartment.

The redesigned front fascia and grille use unique, blacked out upper and lower textures to produce the menacing look that is sure to make onlookers notice the ultimate performance sedan.

An integrated front splitter optimizes airflow to the cooling modules without compromising vehicle balance.

Filling the wheel wells are Slingshot split-seven spoke 20-by-9.5-inch, lightweight forged-aluminum wheels with either standard Matte Black or available Brass Monkey/Dark Bronze finishes.
Two new 275/40ZR20 Pirelli P Zero tires provide performance for all seasons. Both Pirelli P Zero Nero and P Zero tires are Y-Plus rated to handle the extreme speeds the Charger SRT Hellcat is capable of producing.

At the rear, a single piece decked spoiler is painted in body color while the unique fascia and valence showcase the 4-inch round exhaust tips.

The Dodge Charger SRT’s signature racetrack LED tail lamps take on the same continuous glowing ribbon of light that debuted on the new 2014 Dodge Durango. The center high-mounted stop lamp is relocated from the top of the deck lid to the roofline inside the back glass, allowing centering of the Charger SRT’s backup camera.

The rear styling makeover begins at the touchdown point of the C-pillar, which is moved rearward to create an even more pronounced fastback appearance combined with a shorter rear overhang.

High-performance driver-oriented interior
The 2015 Charger SRT models feature restyled driver-focused interiors with premium, soft-touch materials, a new 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) customizable digital instrument gauge cluster and a new instrument panel center stack with the latest generation 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen media center.

New for 2015, drivers can select one of the many offered backgrounds to connect the digital look and feel with their chosen interior package. In addition, the Charger SRT Hellcat has an available premium 900-watt, 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

An all-new and class-exclusive electronic shifter with an all-new driver-oriented T-handle provides the driver with intuitive gear selection and offers an Auto Stick selector gate for added control.

A redesigned SRT-branded heated steering wheel features a flat bottom and thick rim for the high-performance driver. Standard paddle shifters are located on the back of the upper spokes. The buttons to control the driver-configurable, full-color thin-film transistor (TFT) display are large and illuminated. Buttons for Uconnect and phone access now reside along the bottom edge of the horizontal spokes. Optional adaptive cruise control is configured by buttons that are symmetrically opposite on the right-hand side of the wheel. As before, the highly praised audio controls are still found on the back of the upper spokes. This new power tilt-telescoping steering wheel also has a 360-degree heat element.

The new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat features redesigned seats with improved cushioning and more comfortable contours. For improved comfort and convenience, the SRT Hellcat includes standard heated and ventilated front high-performance seats and heated rear seats.

After hearing a rumor on the internet that over 5,000 examples of the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat I checked with the folks at the Chrysler Group and they have confirmed that more than 5,000 orders have indeed been received for the 707hp Mopar muscle car.
11/04/2014

When the Chrysler Group first introduced the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat this year, followed by announcing a few months later that it would pack an incredible 707 horsepower, there was a rumor going around that the company would only build a limited number of vehicles. Chrysler quickly and publically refuted that, starting very clearly that they would make as many as they could sell. Even then, the big mouths that populate automotive forums and the various social media sites insisted that the company wouldn’t sell all that many Hellcat Challengers.

Well, those people seem to have been very wrong, as the Chrysler Group has received more than 5,000 pre-orders for the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

Charger SRT Hellcat Earns EPA Highway Fuel-Economy Rating of 22 mpg

707-Horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Earns EPA Highway Fuel-Economy Rating of 22 mpg

22 miles per gallon (mpg) achieved with award-winning 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8 and segment-exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission

With NHRA-certified quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.0 seconds and top speed of 204 miles per hour, 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, is quickest, fastest and most-powerful sedan ever

World’s only four-door muscle car; starting U.S. MSRP of $63,995

December 10, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -



The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – the quickest, fastest, most-powerful sedan ever – now boasts a fuel-economy rating as remarkable as its performance numbers.

Equipped with Chrysler Group’s 707-horsepower 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V-8 – today named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines – the new Charger SRT Hellcat has earned a highway fuel-economy rating of 22 miles per gallon (mpg) from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


“The new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is a multidimensional phenomenon,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO – Dodge and SRT Brands. “It is the quickest, fastest, most-powerful sedan ever produced – the world’s only four-door muscle car. Factor in its affordable price and 22-mpg highway fuel-economy rating and it’s clear that the Charger SRT Hellcat competes in a class all by itself.”

The new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat has recorded an 11-second quarter-mile on street tires – a clocking certified by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). It also goes from 0-100-0 mph in less than 13 seconds and boasts a top speed of 204 miles per hour (mph).

Its starting U.S. MSRP is $63,995, including a $1,700 gas-guzzler tax.

The Charger SRT Hellcat also earns EPA ratings of 16 mpg in combined-cycle driving, and 13 mpg in the city.


The supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat – the same engine that powers the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat – benefits from content that is 91 percent new, compared with its 6.4-liter SRT cousin, better known as the 392 HEMI.

Engineered in-house, the Hellcat engine is designed for optimum durability in the face of the enormous loads that accompany its prodigious power. Its forged-steel crankshaft has induction-hardened bearing surfaces that contribute to its capacity to withstand firing pressures of 1,595 psi (110 bar) – the equivalent of five sedans standing on each piston, every two revolutions.

Eight-speed Excellence
Central to the car’s extraordinary performance is its new, segment-exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Its 7.03 ratio spreads enables the powerful HEMI Hellcat to operate in its most efficient mode, more frequently, while delivering 160-millisecond shifts and rev-matching for enhanced performance.

The TorqueFlite boasts maximum engine-torque capacity that is 30 percent greater than any eight-speed previously offered by Chrysler Group – the first auto maker to offer advanced eight-speed automatics in mainstream-brand vehicles. The HEMI Hellcat makes 650 lb.-ft. of torque.

To ensure the transmission’s responsiveness matches the demanding expectations of SRT customers, it features one additional pinion gear in each of the 1st and 3rd gear sets, and five more clutch-pack disks – two in clutch E and one each in clutches A, C and D.

Enhancing its handling capabilities are 15.4-inch Brembo two-piece rotors with six-piston calipers – the largest brakes ever offered in a Chrysler Group vehicle. Pirelli P Zero tires on 20 x 9.5-inch wide forged-aluminum wheels with Pirelli P Zero performance tires, and a three-mode adaptive damping suspension. New SRT Performance Pages allow drivers to tailor the driving experience by controlling horsepower, transmission shift speeds, paddle shifters, traction and suspension.

Not to be outdone by the engineers, Chrysler Group designers flexed their considerable creative muscles to match the car’s look with its dynamic feel. Designers re-sculpted and refined nearly every body panel with functional performance cues, including heat extractors in the hood, unique front and rear fascias and dramatic LED lighting in both front and rear.

The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat also features a wide array of the latest high-tech features, including the new award-winning available Uconnect Access system, Uconnect Access Services with roadside assistance, theft-alarm notification, voice texting, new 3-D navigation and the ability to turn the Charger into a Wi-Fi hotspot.

About Dodge Brand
The Dodge brand is tearing into its centennial year as America’s mainstream performance brand, celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2014. With the purification of the brand and consolidation with SRT, Dodge is getting back to its performance roots with every single model it offers. The consolidated Dodge and SRT brands will offer a complete lineup of performance vehicles that stand out within their own segments. Dodge will be the “mainstream performance” brand. SRT will be positioned as the “ultimate performance” halo of the Dodge brand, together creating a complete and balanced performance brand with one vision and one voice.

From muscle cars to compact cars, minivans, crossovers and full-size SUVs, the Dodge brand’s full lineup of 2015 models deliver best-in-class horsepower, class-exclusive technology, unmatched capability and a slew of cool features, such as LED headlamps, Dodge signature racetrack tail lamps, dual exhaust, 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment centers and 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) customizable gauge clusters, to name a few. For the 2015 model year, customers will be able to drive the new 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger, as well as the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat.

First Test: 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

12/16/2014

First Test:
2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat


Seven-oh-seven horsepower. In a full-size American sedan. Let that sink in. The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is the most powerful production sedan ever built. And with a claimed 204-mph top speed, Chrysler says it's also the fastest production sedan ever. The fact that the Charger has four doors makes it even more ludicrous than its two-door Challenger counterpart, which we loved dearly in our First Test and a comparison against the supercharged 580-hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. (The supercharged 662-hp Ford Shelby GT500 has been discontinued.)

2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat:


2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: The Most Powerful Sedan In The World! - Ignition Ep. 122

Published on Jan 12, 2015

On this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack, Carlos Lago tests the most powerful sedan money can buy: The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Much like the Challenger Hellcat, this Charger packs an astonishing 707 hp from its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. It is as absurd as it is functional, thanks to its two additional doors and comfortable backseat. But to find out if this sedan can do more than leave two long stripes of burnt tire for miles, we’ll need to run it through our standard set of tests, including a Hot Lap with Randy Pobst. Does the Charger Hellcat offer the same magic that we loved in the Challenger? Find out on this episode of Ignition! @CarlosLago

Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend
