A Hellcat For The Whole Family

Dodge shook things up earlier this summer when it introduced the Challenger SRT Hellcat, a supercharged beast of an automobile packing 707 horsepower right off the showroom floor. It’s one one of the most powerful production cars ever, and with a price starting around $60,000 it delivers a ridiculous amount of performance for the money.

Of course, as soon as the Challenger debuted, people have been wondering if Dodge would begin fitting the Hellcat powerplant into its other vehicles. The answer is yes, and the second vehicle to join the lineup is the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

The current Charger has always been seen as a muscle car for the family, and with the addition of the 707hp motor, the Hellcat version has become more than that. It’s now the world’s most powerful production sedan. Dodge claims the car will do an 11.0-second quarter mile on street tires and hit a top speed of 204mph.

Along with blown 6.2-liter HEMI, the Hellcat Charger also gets plenty of other high performance goodies, including a Brembo brake package with six piston callipers and giant 15.4-inch rotors up front. The 20×9.5-inch wheels are forged and come shod with Pirelli P ZERO tires.

All of that comes wrapped around a plush and tech-laden interior that can accommodate up to five adults in complete comfort.

Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but like the Challenger I’d expect this car to deliver all this for a relatively affordable sum. Sure, a BMW M5 or a hot Jag might be nice, but this has instantly become one of the best choices out there for hauling family and friends around very quickly.

You lost me at $60,000.


The 80's called. They want their interior back... What the....


too bad the magnum is dead.


no stick?
no bueno!


Now they need to put the Hellcat in a single cab Ram.


36kish in gbp, that's less then my SUV cost, (by almost 10k) with over twice as much power. If they decide to launch it in Europe I'm certain to want one.


Dill Pickle The return of the little red wagon?


RaySpijk You've...never actually seen an 80's interior before, have you?


707hp in a sedan stock...sign me up!!!


I was thinking of a successor for the Srt10, but you have a much better idea. Complete with a side-step bed & the non-funtional exhaust stacks!


I've heard that Dodge really wants to put it back into production.


Dill Pickle JustinTrouble They really would have to release a great looking concept design. We know they will already have a good drivetrain setup to work with but this thing will have to look amazing. Inside and out.


I can't even believe this is real life........ The want is real.


Dill Pickle I've been arguing with my B-I-L about this saying they need to at least raise the standard knowing that they now offer this engine package. A 392 in a single cab would be pretty swell. 470hp 470tq.


yeah it has 700hp but 60 grand for a dodge charger???


Here's a snippet of info I found:
On July 17, 2011, Ralph Gilles (Chrysler Group Design Chief, head of the SRT division, and former head of Dodge Division) told the New York Times that Chrysler may revive the Magnum.
Gilles says folks at Chrysler are still proud of the Magnum—which attracted famously loyal owners. "With the Magnum, we owned the station wagon segment," says Gilles, who oversaw the wagon's creation as design chief. "It was always a pleasure to go to car shows and trade fairs and see the number of Magnums that owners had personalized with such obvious loving care." He blames its death on a single suit who didn't survive with new Chrysler: It "was single-handedly killed by one executive who is no longer with the company. He's retired. A lot of people in the company still like that vehicle -- a lot."
Gilles says Chrysler now is in a position to dream, but he backed off when asked whether Magnum, the Sequel is a sure thing, telling the NYT: "Stay tuned. Great things are coming. That's all I can say."


spencermaranda79 You don't read very well, do you? The CHALLENGER is $60K. Pricing has yet to be announced for the Charger.


RoughIdea It doesn't cost $60K.


I want to see a Grand Cherokee Hellcat


There are clearly not enough stripes and fluffy dice.


@Jake Laird RoughIdea it probably will though


DanielMikels Just thinking about that too! That'd be badass!


Wow, I figured this would turn up sooner or later!


Dill Pickle Thats cool. Espcially if they follow the design of this Charger Hellcat.


ssonosk RoughIdea But loo at what you are paying for. This isn't a 30k car.


@ssonosk @RoughIdea 60k for one of the most powerful production cars in history doesn't sound too bad to me?

Chris 'Haffy' Hafner

@Jake Laird @spencermaranda79 $100k easy....


RobbertMes Challenger can be ordered with one. Don't think they'd exclude one for the Charger.


Dodge isn't making a Police Pursuit Vehicle version of this thing...are they?


TarmacTerrorist I'm worried you wouldn't be able to afford the gas... it's pricey to fill the Challenger in the US, imagine the UK!


Storm trooper meets the Hulk :D  Seriously though, I can't wait to see these cars in Formula D


boz50 i will be escaping the dodge world after this car lol


boz50 no me gusta


boz50 i don't like challengers homeboy. I am impressed by the 707 though


boz50 i like the charger much more. New front end is sick


The American Auto Industry is churning out some serious cars...Zee Germans are in trouble!!!
