Dodge’s fastest and most powerful sedan is on a street. Dodge Division of Chrysler Corporation proudly presented its new spectacular 707 hp vehicles. Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is one of the most interesting cars these days that has attracted the attention of people around the world.
Under the hood is the now familiar 707-hp supercharged V8 displacing 6.2 liters. It pumps out 650 lb-ft of torque, can sprint to 60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds and can post a quarter-mile time of 11.0 seconds. It burns through 1.5 gallons of gasoline per minute. The 4,560-pound Charger is slightly heavier than the Challenger.
As in the two-door Hellcat, the engine is paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission. Charger SRT Hellcat also has the biggest brakes in the brand’s history and higher quality interior complete with a touch screen display.
“This is a car that most brands would never bring to market. This is a car that really does not have a business case for it,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand CEO. “Sometimes, you need to disregard the data; sometimes, you need to disregard the focus groups.”
The new steering wheel also features a 360-degree heat element and the whole interior is now sportier with much improved technology that gives the driver maximum comfort during the ride. There is an all-new electronic shifter with a T-handle and 18-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
Driving modes are available as Eco, Default, Custom, Sport and Default, while the Track mode enables the Charger Hellcat to Work at its full potential. The Drive Modes feature is controlled through the Uconnect system and may be accessed by pushing the SRT button on the instrument panel switch bank, selecting “Drive Modes” from the “SRT & Apps” menu or selecting “Drive Modes” from within the Performance Pages menu.
