The speed enthusiasts and muscle car lovers can now start looking forward to the new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat that made its official debut at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit. This model is about to hit the market as a 2019 model and it will be more powerful than ever.
- A spacious cabin,
- real muscle car driving experience.
- heavy in weight and fuel-thirsty.
If you are looking for an eye-catching retro design combined with an excellent performance, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will be an excellent choice for you. The new Hellcat will pretty much resemble its muscle predecessor, but it will also undergo some distinctive enhancements in terms of body design. In fact, most of its exterior features will be inspired by the more powerful Demon version of the Challenger. Therefore, probably the most distinctive feature on its low hood is the ‘air-grabber’, the largest hood scoop you have ever seen on such models. The new Hellcat is said to be lower, but also wider than its predecessor, which means more space inside its cabin. Its wide body is a result of a brand-new platform that the Hellcat will ride on. This rear-wheel drive platform is shared with the outgoing Alpha Romeo Giulia. This muscle car should stand on 18-inch wheels and get wider fender flares. It won’t be a kind of a lightweight car, but you can definitely expect the improved acceleration and overall performance.
The cabin of the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will show some serious updates and innovations, especially in terms of technology. The driver will get a 5.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest U Connect infotainment system that will provide features such as CD player, climate control, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth and other connectivity options. The carmaker will also pay attention to the overall comfort and luxury and use some high-quality materials inside. Safety systems and driver assist features should also be improved.
The fans have probably been the most interested in the engine choice found under the hood of the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. It will come with the Demon’s 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8. It has been said that this engine will deliver the output of 725 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, instead of the previous 707 horsepower. Amazing, isn’t it? It will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and get a rear-wheel drive system. The estimated top speed is 195 mph while the new Hellcat will take 3.5 seconds to hit 60 mph.
