Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Is The Most Powerful Muscle Car Ever — 707 hp!

DG015_149CL-1024x668

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.

Refreshed 2015 Dodge Challenger, Charger Coming to New York

Dodge has announced it will bring the 2015 Challenger and 2015 Charger to the New York auto show next week. As we previously reported, both models are due for a refresh this year, and it will come just in time for the Dodge brand’s 100th anniversary this summer.

UPDATE: Chrysler Group has released another teaser image ahead of New York, this time showing the front end of the 2015 Dodge Charger (above). The sedan’s mug looks to have been pretty extensively redone, with the headlights appearing a bit more rounded and with less of an angry slant to them compared to the current car. Based on this angle, it’s difficult to say if any of the Charger’s aggressive front end carries over, but we’ll find out for sure when both cars are revealed on April 17.

Chrysler Group says the 2015 Dodge Challenger will get a new exterior and interior treatment, but most importantly will get a “new powertrain combination that is sure to get enthusiasts ‘abuzz.'” A teaser image shows the Challenger’s updated gauge cluster, which features the same bee used for the Scat Pack logo and a tachometer with a 6000-rpm redline. The Challenger is rumored to get a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, reportedly dubbed the “Hellcat” engine. That engine is said to produce as much as 640 hp, and would be backed by a six-speed manual or possibly an eight-speed automatic transmission. That could be what Dodge is referring to here, but the use of the word “abuzz” in quotations has us wondering. Perhaps there’s more news coming on the recently announced Scat Pack upgrade packages (possibly for SRT models this time), or maybe the upcoming supercharged engine won’t be called Hellcat after all, with Dodge instead going with another bee-themed name from its past like Yellow Jacket.

Whatever the brand has in store, the 2015 Dodge Challenger will take the stage alongside the also-refreshed 2015 Charger on April 17 in New York. If you want to see the unveiling live, you can watch the livestream here at 11:30 am EST next Thursday.
