Dodge Announces Most Powerful SRT Hellcat Lineup Ever

Dodge Announces Most Powerful SRT Hellcat Lineup Ever! For the 2019 Challenger Lineup, Dodge has announced the new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the most powerful, quickest and fastest muscle car that gets an impressive 797 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque. The Hemi Demon V-8 powered Redeye goes 0-60 in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 203 mph. If that’s a little too much speed, the SRT Hellcat offer 717 horsepower and 656 lb.-ft. of torque. Dodge will also offer the Widebody Package on the Challenger R/T Scat Pack model, which adds 3.5 inches to the overall width, improving handling and braking.

“With 840 horsepower, a 9.65 quarter-mile time and Guinness World Record certification that it’s the first production car to lift the wheels at launch, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon earned its place in the record books,” said Steve Beahm – Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA North America. “The Dodge Brothers would be proud that we’re leveraging the power and performance of this proven engine to bring a Demon-possessed Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye to an even wider high-performance enthusiast audience.”

Compared with the standard SRT Hellcat engine, the Redeye’s supercharged high-output engine features:

  • Largest factory supercharger of any production car – 2.7 liters versus 2.4 liters
  • Increased boost pressure: 14.5 psi versus 11.6 psi
  • Higher rpm limit: 6,500 rpm versus 6,200 rpm
  • Fuel: Two dual-stage fuel pumps versus one
    • At full throttle, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye’s high-output engine consumes 1.43 gal/min (5.4 liters/min) of fuel – enough to drain the fuel tank in just under 11 minutes, yet is still rated at 22 miles per gallon (mpg) when driven in normal highway conditions
  • Larger induction air box with three sources of intake air:
    • New dual-snorkel hood
    • Driver-side Air Catcher headlamp
    • Inlet near the wheel liner

“We designed the SRT Hellcat Challenger’s new dual-snorkel hood to focus on another key historical Mopar design element and pay homage to our past with a modern interpretation that looks even more sinister,” said Mark Trostle – Head of Performance, Passenger and Utility Vehicle Exterior Design, FCA US LLC. “Whenever we design a new exterior element, we work hand-in-hand with the SRT engineering team to ensure that everything we create resonates with SRT DNA, is functional and meets their performance goals.” Learn more in the video below.
