After making the hearts of car fans flutter with the unveiling of the 707-horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the car brand offers up a first look at the Charger version.
The 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat will feature Dodge’s supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine, which produces 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque — making it officially the quickest, fastest, most powerful production sedan in the world.
“For the last eight years, a large part of the Dodge Charger’s successful formula has been its many personalities,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO — Dodge and SRT Brands. “It’s a muscle car, a performance sedan, a family capable sedan; its success is that it can be any or all of those things, depending on how the customer chooses to equip their car. And now, with a NHRA-certified quarter mile time of 11.0 seconds and a 204 mph top speed, the new 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat redefines itself again, as the quickest, fastest, most powerful sedan in the world.”
It will feature all-new “Drive Modes” that tailor the driving experience to each individual driver, whether its on-road or on-track.
Custom — Allows the driver to personalize the vehicle’s performance
Sport — Delivers increased vehicle performance capability over the Default Mode
Track — Delivers maximum vehicle performance capability on smooth, dry surfaces
Default — Activates automatically when starting the vehicle
Eco — Maximizes fuel economy with a revised shift schedule, pedal map and second-gear starts
Also, like the Challenger Hellcat, the Charger Hellcat comes standard with two key fobs — red and black. The red key fob is the only key that can unlock the full horsepower and torque potential of the SRT Hellcat engine; while the black key fob limits the driver to a reduced engine output.
The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is slated to begin in the first quarter of 2015.
