707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Is The Most Powerful Muscle Car Ever -- 707 hp!
July 1, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

The all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT, with its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat engine, produces an unprecedented 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful Challenger ever, Dodge's most powerful V-8 ever and the most powerful muscle car ever.









The Challenger's new 6.2-liter Supercharged Hellcat engine is also the first factory supercharged HEMI, as well as Dodge and SRT's first application of V-8 supercharger technology. For the first time in Chrysler Group history, the all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT with a Hellcat engine comes standard with two key fobs -- red and black. The red key fob is the only key that can unlock the full 707 horsepower and torque potential of the Challenger SRT Hellcat engine; while the black key fob limits the driver to a reduced engine output of 500 horsepower.

In addition to the awe-inspiring 707 horsepower of the new Hellcat HEMI, the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been redesigned and totally re-engineered to be the most true-to-form muscle coupe on the market with performance-enhancing technologies inside and out, including the new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-new interior inspired by the classic 1971 Challenger.

The Dodge and SRT brands now offer the most complete lineup of muscle cars in the market, including the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT with its standard powerful and fuel-efficient Pentastar V-6 engine combined with the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission that delivers 300 horsepower and an estimated 30 miles per gallon; the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T with the high-torque 5.7-liter HEMI now paired with the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual transmission; and the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI Challenger Scat Pack that delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque with the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger and Challenger SRTs are built at the Brampton, Ontario, Assembly Plant and will start arriving in Dodge dealerships in the third quarter of 2014.

Dodge Launches Challenger SRT Hellcat Configurator

Dodge Launches Challenger SRT Hellcat Configurator, Tries To Curb Markups

09/10/2014

At $59,995, the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is one of the performance bargains of our era. For the price of an optioned-up six-cylinder sedan from one of the established luxury marques, Dodge will supply you with the world's most powerful muscle car, a 707-horsepower tire-shredding beast that gives us just a little hope for the future of back-to-basics performance cars.

Well, it's a bargain when dealers aren't slapping enormous markups on the price anyway. What is a bargain at sixty grand can appear less so with ten or twenty thousand extra on the sticker, but Dodge itself is stepping to the rescue in an attempt to curb this behavior. The longer a Hellcat sits on the lot, Automotive News (subscription required) reports, the fewer Hellcats a dealer will receive in the future.

"I think it’s the right thing to do" said brand boss Tim Kuniskis, and while he says that dealers are within their rights to carry out market pricing, the move should dissuade them from squeezing every penny from customers. He adds that dealers going gangbusters on regular models like Darts and Journeys will be rewarded with extra Hellcat allocation.

If you've not quite got to the dealer yet, it's worth having a look at Dodge's online Hellcat configurator. Sixty grand is out of the reach of many, but a spin on the configurator is free and still pretty satisfying. It also gives you a good idea of how much you'll really pay for the car: While desirable options like Sublime green or TorRed paintwork won't cost a penny, you can now finally discover the price of the TorqueFlite eight-speed auto gearbox ($1,995), a set of summer tires ($395) or red seat belts ($95). Click here to access the configurator.

Earns EPA Highway Fuel-Economy Rating of 22 mpg

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


•22 miles per gallon (mpg) achieved with segment-exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission; new six-speed manual contributes to 21-mpg highway rating
•Ratings surpass those of many lesser-powered sports cars with price tags that
far exceed the SRT Hellcat’s $59,995 starting sticker
•2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is most powerful muscle car ever

September 17, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the most powerful muscle car ever, now boasts a fuel-economy rating as compelling as the 707 horses hurrying from its 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI® Hellcat V-8.

Equipped with Chrysler Group’s segment-exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, the new Challenger 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 Challenger is the perfect street / strip muscle car,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO – Dodge and SRT Brands. “As the fastest muscle car ever, the Challenger Hellcat can run 10-second ETs at the track, and then get 22 miles per gallon on the drive home. With a starting price of $59,995, there’s nothing else that even comes close.”

Added Bob Lee, Chrysler Group LLC Vice President and Head of Engine, Powertrain and Electrified Propulsion Systems Engineering: “The collective benefits of the HEMI Hellcat engine and our newest TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission promise an extraordinarily rewarding ownership experience. If value is defined by the combination of price, performance and fuel economy, no car beats the Challenger SRT Hellcat.”

The Challenger SRT Hellcat carves a unique place for itself in the lofty world of high-performance driving. Consider the price, output and 2015 EPA highway fuel-economy ratings of the following: •Lamborghini Aventador Roadster – $425,845; 700 horsepower; 18 mpg
•Aston Marton Vanquish – $287,820; 576 horsepower; 18 mpg
•Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT – $221,580; 583 horsepower; 19 mpg


The supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI 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.

The HEMI Hellcat further benefits from premium-grade, heat-treated aluminum-alloy cylinder heads that are optimized for thermal conductivity. These are topped by a twin-screw 2,380-cc/rev supercharger that features integral charge coolers and an integrated electronic bypass to regulate boost pressure to a maximum of 80 kPa (11.6 psi).

A separate low-temperature cooling circuit with two air/coolant heat exchangers integrated into the supercharger housing keeps air temperatures below 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 degrees Celsius), while enabling air flow of up to 30,000 liters per minute.

So effective is this feature that engine power will not be derated due to cooling demands, even after 20 laps of a grueling 3.1-mile road course where the ambient temperature is 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius).

The HEMI Hellcat does not lack for style, either. Its die-cast aluminum rocker covers echo the block’s Street HEMI Orange motif.

The car’s new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission boasts maximum engine-torque capacity that is 30 percent greater than any eight-speed previously offered by Chrysler Group. To ensure its responsiveness matches the demanding expectations of SRT customers, the transmission 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.

The defining benefit of the gearbox is its 7.03 ratio spread, which enables the powerful HEMI Hellcat to operate in its most efficient mode, more frequently.

Not to be outdone, the Challenger SRT Hellcat earns an EPA highway fuel-economy 21 mpg when equipped with its new-for-2015 six-speed manual transmission. The sporty gearbox boasts an internal cooling pump and external, vehicle-mounted oil cooler and its beefier 258-mm heavy-duty clutch affords easy access to HEMI Hellcat’s prodigious power.

How to Make a Hellcat

How to Make a Hellcat


09/19/2014

Like the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. As Ruedisueli points out in this edition of “Autoline After Hours,” the speed of an SRT product is not electronically limited. And the Hellcat—which was the internal code name for the 6.2-liter HEMI engine that has become the moniker for this version of the SRT Challenger—has/is a 707-hp supercharged engine. If mated to a Torqueflite 8H90 transmission, the curb weight of the car is 4,439 lb. If mated to a six-speed manual Tremec TR-6060, the curb weight is 4,449 lb.

So think about that: 707 hp. 4,449 lb. Pretty quick.

Air Catcher headlamp feeds 2015 Challenger SRT's Hellcat V8

01/02/2015

Air Catcher headlamp feeds 2015 Challenger SRT's Hellcat V8




A patent-pending headlamp on the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT doubles as a cool air intake for the supercharged 6.2-L "Hellcat" Hemi V8 that produces an SAE-certified 707 hp.

The new muscle car conveys its unique front end style via four round light emitting diode (LED) halo surrounds on the headlamps. On the driver-side inner headlamp, the eye-catching design cleverly integrates an air inlet system—dubbed "Air Catcher"—among the series of amber LEDs for the turn signal and daytime running lamp.


“We used LED technology in the headlamps, and that enabled us to open up a 66-mm (2.6-in) passage through the sealed driver inner headlamp,” Jeff Gale, Senior Manager of Dodge Exterior Design Studio, explained in an Automotive Engineering interview during the new Challenger’s recent media introduction in Portland, OR.

“We then shaped the lens back toward the housing to help with airflow through the headlamp,” he said. “Then we sealed everything up and created an air intake opening that feeds directly to the 8.0-L airbox located right behind the headlight.”

Sports and racing cars historically have used a similar approach to increasing airflow to the engine. “A lot of times they’d take out the high-beams, put a screen over the opening, and ducting would feed directly to the air cleaner or carburetor. That’s the type of thing that racers would do to the cars when they went to the drag strip or road course,” Gale noted.

The new Air Catcher had its genesis in the Dodge Challenger 1320 concept revealed at the 2009 SEMA show, and sporting a hole in one headlight. “That was a one-off concept aimed at a drag racer. But then we thought, ‘Why not try this on a production car?’” said Gale.

Chris Cowland, Director of SRT Powertrain Engineering, estimates the Air Catcher provides a single-digit horsepower bump to the new Challenger SRT Hellcat’s V8.

Box Cars: 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat


Challenger Hellcat proudly defies logic with 707 horsepower
23 January 2015

Belt Line Road stretched before me dark and empty, a broad black ribbon begging to be shredded.

I couldn’t resist. Seven-hundred chattering demons kept calling to me — honest, officer.

Less than an hour earlier, I had strapped into a raucous red 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, a sinister, shrieking coupe made to misbehave.

Dodge's Hellcat too hot

Dodge's Hellcat too hot
04/18/2015

Dodge's audacious, hellacious 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat is a no-holds-barred modern muscle car. Armed with 700-plus horsepower and a claimed top speed of 199 mph, the Hellcat was built to make no excuses and take no prisoners.

And now Dodge is taking no new orders for the Hellcat. Apparently it's too hot a commodity.

The temporary ban, which includes the Charger SRT Hellcat, came down last month due to "unprecedented demand" since orders started being taken last September, said Dan Reid, a manager with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' Street and Racing Technology (SRT) group.


"We received more than 4,500 orders in just the first five days, and to date we have received more than 9,000 orders," Reid said, adding that the restrictions would be lifted once orders in the system are sorted out. "Some customers may have put multiple orders at different dealers in an effort to get one of the first Hellcats."

Should you wait? Choose jaw-dropping acceleration over instant gratification? Should you even care? And what's gotten consumers and certain corners of the Internet so hot for the Hellcat?

Performance, for starters. The Challenger SRT Hellcat can knock off 0-60 mph in the low 3-second range, hustle down a quarter-mile drag strip in 11.2 seconds and top out at 199 mph, according to SRT.

To deliver those kinds of numbers, the Hellcat relies on the most powerful production V8 Chrysler has ever offered. Producing 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, harnessing it and keeping the drivetrain alive demands attention to detail, some very nifty hardware and software, and for good measure, a few tricks learned from racing.

Under its unique vented and scooped hood, the 6.2-liter Hemi Hellcat V8's heavy-duty forged pistons and connecting rods are matched to a forged-steel crankshaft. While the block is cast iron, cylinder heads are aluminum alloy. The supercharger's internals are built to tight tolerances and use special coatings for efficiency and durability. The sealed supercharger, which produces a maximum boost of 11.6 psi and has integrated heat exchangers, is designed to never need oil changes and uses premium synthetic oil. Borrowing a neat technique drag racers used in the '60s, the Hellcat takes in air for the blower's air box through a vent in the grille that's fashioned from one of its lights.

A key to the Hellcat's appeal is its gloriously aggressive exhaust snarl. SRT came up with a valve that's electronically controlled to tune the 2.75-inch straight-through dual exhaust system.

The standard Hellcat has an externally cooled, heavy-duty six-speed manual transmission that's based on the gearbox found in the Viper SRT. The optional performance-rated eight-speed automatic can handle 30 percent more torque than Chrysler's previous eight-speeds.

The suspension also has been made stouter. The front brakes are Brembo two-piece 15.4-in. vented and slotted rotors and six piston calipers. The rears are 13.8s. The Hellcat comes with 275/40ZR20 Pirelli P Zero all-season performance tires on lightweight 20 x 9.5-inch split-spoke forged aluminum wheels. Summer performance tires are optional as are dark bronze-finished wheels if you don't like the standard matte black.

The Hellcat's Uconnect with 8.4-inch display and GPS navigation is one of the most attractive, consistent and user-friendly infotainment packages in the industry. Techies will appreciate the electronics, which not only offer traditional entertainment via radio, satellite, USB and streaming, but also enable drivers to customize their vehicle's interfaces and measure performance on the street or at the track. An added plus: navigating the right menus and pushing the right buttons will get you into "drive mode" and that can be of great practical value. For example, one of the available modes, "valet" locks out first gear and tweaks other systems to tame power and suspension settings.

And here's a slick trick they never had in the old-school muscle car era. The Hellcat comes standard with two distinctly different smart keys. If you believe that absolute power corrupts, then warding off the corruption (or worse) that can result from massive horsepower is probably a savvy move. The red smart key unleashes the Hellcat Hemi's full fury. The black one dials back power and limits revs if you're entrusting your Hellcat to a valet, technician, friend or relative.

If you were A) shrewd/fortunate enough to take delivery of a Hellcat before the ordering intermission and B) able to buy the Hellcat at sticker price - MSRP is just a hair above $60,000 with destination ($995) and gas guzzler tax ($1,700) - count yourself lucky. But as over-the-top as spending 60 large for 707 stomping horsepower may seem, the Challenger SRT Hellcat is a pretty fair deal when you look at some of the competition from the cost-per-horsepower perspective. (Running in this power pack would be rides like the Ford Shelby Mustang GT500, Chevy Camaro ZL1, Porsche GT3 or Camaro Z06.)

Then again, for some, the allure of the Hellcat comes down to a factor far more powerful than any number obtainable on a dynamometer: emotion.

Proclaiming the Challenger SRT Hellcat a "great car," Dave Kinney, publisher of the Hagerty Price Guide, which analyzes collector-vehicle values, added, "It has the cred to back up the looks, with good off-the-line performance and speed. It's fast, good looking, and a true 'tribute' to the car's forefathers. There is no mistaking the Chrysler DNA in the Hellcat.

"It's got a fantastic name as well, a moniker that resonates with gamers as well as granddads," Kinney said. "It is also becoming a must-have for Chrysler muscle car collectors. That's a very good sign for future collectability.

Armchair investors, if your speculative gears are grinding, the licensed appraiser has some advice for you.

"If you are using your play money, that's fine," Kinney said. "Don't bet the farm on any collectible car; pay off the house and the kids' educations first. If you can afford it, and it makes you happy to drive and own it, go for it."

Hellcat Challenger Makes Possible Record Quarter Mile Run (Video)
The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat that we featured a few weeks ago while running a handful of high ten second runs was back on the track this weekend with incredible results – running even quicker and posting what could be record quarter mile times for the 707 horsepower Mopar muscle car.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat shown above should look familiar to our regular readers, as a few weeks back we brought you the story of this particular supercharged Challenger. It is owned by long time sportsman drag racer Ricci Cavallaro and shortly after getting it, Cavallaro was quick to get to the track to see what it could do. Based on his years of experience racing 10 second cars, he knew that a good set of tires is........

2015 Dodge Challenger: Classic muscle car

2015 Dodge Challenger: Classic muscle car





07/06/2015

As is customary with Dodge, the name for their latest and greatest Challenger model is military-derived; from the WWII Hellcat fighter aircraft and tank destroyers. Dodge’s history of militarised engine monikers — Tigershark, Apache, Viper — is strong, and particularly well suited for this mega-muscled car.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is out of the proverbial bag. Under the hood it packs the most powerful production V8 engine ever. The 6.2 litre supercharger Hemi V8 churns out a behemoth 707 bhp, and an earth pounding 880Nm of torque.

The end-result is a monster with a low 3 second timing for 0-100 kmph, and the ability to clock the quarter mile run in 10.8 seconds. The top speed for the Hellcat is a whopping 320km an hour (track speed). Terrifyingly fast and incredibly powerful, the Hellcat is a true beast in every sense.

Unlike the other two American Muscle cars (the Mustang and the Camero), the Challenger Hellcat doesn’t have a ton of styling to differentiate it ........
