Dodge has just unveiled the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and it’s likely to have many Mustang and Camaro fanatics shaking in their boots. No, seriously.
Yes, the last generation Challenger was overweight, underpowered, and mated to an automatic transmission no less. It was no competition for cars like the Shelby GT500 or Camaro Z/28. But the SRT Hellcat is about to change all of that.
The all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT, with its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat engine, produces an astounding 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!
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.
It’s taken awhile for Dodge to get back in the muscle car game, but it appears that it was well worth the wait!
