Dodge has always been known for building muscle cars, but they’ve upped the ante with the high-performance 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – one part Hercules, one part Usain Bolt, one part sinister. The numbers speak themselves:
- Quarter mile in 11.0 seconds
- 0-100-0 mph in under 13 seconds
- Top speed of 204 mph
The 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat will feature a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine that produces 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque – making it the fastest, most powerful production sedan in the world.
A forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearing surface and heat-treated aluminum-alloy cylinder heads are optimized for superior thermal conductivity
The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat comes standard with two key fobs – red and black. The red key fob unlocks the full horsepower and torque potential of the SRT Hellcat engine; while the black key fob limits the driver to reduced engine output (but why would you want to do that?)
The exterior of the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, inspired by the iconic second-generation Charger from the late 1960s, specifically draws its cues from the 1969 model.
Up front, the Hellcat receives a larger, power-bulge aluminum hood, which features a dedicated “cold-air” intake – a visual styling cue from the first Viper coupe built in 1996 – and dual air extractors.
The redesigned front fascia and grille use unique, blacked-out upper, and lower textures to produce the menacing look.
At the rear, a single piece decked spoiler is painted in body color while the unique fascia and valence showcase the 4-inch round exhaust tips.
Filling the wheel wells are “Slingshot” split-seven spoke 20″, aluminum wheels with either standard Matte Black or available Brass Monkey/dark bronze finishes.
Two new 275/40ZR20 Pirelli P Zero tires provide performance for all seasons. Both Pirelli P Zero Nero and P Zero tires are Y-Plus rated to handle the extreme speeds the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat is capable of producing.
The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat’s driver-focused interior features premium, soft-touch materials, a new 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) customizable digital instrument gauge cluster, and a new instrument panel center stack with the latest generation 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen media center.
A redesigned SRT-branded heated steering wheel includes a flat bottom and thick rim for the high-performance driver and standard paddle shifters.
The ventilated front high-performance seats with improved cushioning and more comfortable contours only enhance the driving experience.
