While the 2019 model has been officially revealed and soon anticipated in the market, the arrival of the 2020 Dodge Challenger Hellcat has still been based on rumors. This popular muscle car has been in the market for over a decade now and the fans are truly impatient to see the next-generation roadster on its way.
- more retro-based design than its competitors,
- a real muscle car experience,
- significant high-tech updates.
- its arrival still not confirmed.
Although there is little or no official information about the upcoming 2020 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the rumors and speculations about this powerful roadster have been really loud lately. The Challenger Hellcat has been mostly known for its unique exterior look that shows more retro-based styling than its main competitors Camaro and Mustang. This will continue with the 2020 model and some of the changes and updates will be really serious. First of all, it has been said that the Challenger should abandon its current LC platform and ride on the brand-new one shared with the Maserati Quattroporte. This architecture should allow a wider chassis and stretched dimensions. Also, the carmaker should use the combination of aluminum and high-strength steel in order to save some weight and that way boost the overall performance. Another innovative feature will be noticed on the hood and it will be known as an air grabber. This dual hood scoop will also largely enhance the cooling and performance of the upcoming Hellcat. This muscle car should also get better and brand-new suspension system. All in all, the new Challenger Hellcat is expected to bring some rather aggressive and muscular appearance.
Due to its stretched dimensions and wider body that we have already mentioned, the 2020 Dodge Challenger Hellcat should provide a spacious and comfortable cabin for its four passengers. This sports car will also use the combination of retro features and modern details inside its cabin. It has been rumored that the carmaker will use some high-quality materials and that the front seats should offer options such as heating and ventilation. Other updates can be expected in terms of technology and safety as well. The driver should hope for a larger, probably an 8.4-inch touch-screen with the latest U Connect infotainment system and lots of next-generation features and connectivity options.
The fans are definitely expecting more power under the hood of the 2020 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. The muscle car will probably keep its 6.2-liter V8 as an option, but it should deliver more power than the 2019 model which hits 717 horsepower and 656 pound-feet of torque in a regular model. We are waiting for other engine choices and numbers to be officially confirmed and then we will let you know. The 2020 Hellcat should also keep its eight-speed automatic transmission and the rear-wheel drive system as standard.
