When the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was announced, the folks at Chrysler merely said it would have more than 600 horsepower. Turns out they weren't kidding. It's going to have about 700 horsepower. (Update: It's official, the Hellcat has 707 horsepower and 650 pound feet. See the video below.)

Seven. Hundred. Freaking. Horsepower.

I'm excited but I'm also deeply, deeply terrified.

A source familiar with the company says the vehicle will produce over 700 horsepower, probably 702 horsepower, and that Chrysler is planning to announce the accomplishment on Monday, July 7, or 7/7. A spokesperson for Chrysler declined to comment.

This will make the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8-powered Hellcat the most powerful American production car ever built, besting both the Shelby GT500, the Corvette Z06 and Dodge's own Viper. I guess we'll find out more next week.

God Bless America. God Bless Hellcat.

Update: Reader Blake Wilcox spotted this video from Chrysler where they announce the car's official power figure: 707 horsepower. Good gravy! Dodge's official press release also revealed the torque figure: 650 pound feet. That is staggering.
Not a big fan of the challenger but it still Should be one hell of a ride.

900-HP Challenger Hellcat Widebody Has a Flair for the Dramatic



For every American enthusiast who lusts after European forbidden fruit, there’s a European counterpart doing the same thing. An Audi RS 6 Avant to us is what a Dodge Challenger Hellcat is to them—well, perhaps it’s not a 1:1 ratio, maybe more like 1:20 seeing as Europe really does have the upper hand when it comes to fantastic vehicles. Nevertheless, when a Dodge Challenger Hellcat is imported to Germany, fantastic things happen.

As the tuning firm has done with so many other performance vehicles, Prior Design chose to add a widebody kit to the Challenger Hellcat, which makes it one of only a handful of similar cats across the entire globe. The fender flares are hardly subtle, which on a car like the Challenger is more than ok, considering its already outlandish nature. Even the gold PD3 Forged wheels, for example, look great where on anything else they might seem ridiculous. Even better with the eye-catching red paint scheme.

The people buying them are paying the gas guzzler tax. The Global climate change scam is more about the power and money than it is about saving our planet.

A sharper and more powerful Dodge Challenger Hellcat could be on its way

Ronan Glon,Digital Trends 16 hours ago Comments Sign in to like Reblog on Tumblr Share Tweet Email

The next generation of the Dodge Challenger could inaugurate an updated version of the immensely powerful Hellcat V8 engine.



Technical details are still few and far between, but Automobile Magazine has learned that the next Hellcat engine will pack 750 horsepower, a generous 43-pony increase over the current mill. The engine will once again have eight cylinders, but it’s too early to tell whether it will continue to use a large supercharger or switch to a pair of turbochargers.

All variants of the next Challenger will ride on an evolution of the rear-wheel drive platform that currently underpins the Alfa Romeo Giulia. The Italian genes will make Dodge’s muscle car much lighter than the current model (pictured), smaller, and more dynamic to drive. Dodge is on a quest to build more driver-focused cars, and the Giulia chassis could also be found under the next Journey crossover.

Of course, the Hellcat won’t be the Challenger’s volume engine. Dodge will continue to offer six- and eight-cylinder engines, and it’s reasonable to assume that the Challenger will also be available with the 300-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo four that will debut under the hood of the next Wrangler. Buyers will be asked to choose between a manual and an automatic transmission.

A smaller, sharper Challenger will allow Dodge to fight head to head against the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro. It gets better too. While the current Challenger is only available as a coupe, the next-gen model will spawn a convertible that will resurrect the iconic Barracuda nameplate that Plymouth launched during the 1960s. The first-ever Dodge Barracuda will get a look of its own, and it will be smaller than the Challenger in every direction.

We’re taking the information with a grain of salt because it’s just a rumor at this point, and Dodge hasn’t commented on what the future holds for the Hellcat or for the Challenger. If Automobile Magazine‘s sources are correct, look for both the Challenger and the Barracuda to debut in time for the 2019 model year.

Future Cars You Won’t Want to Miss: Dodge Challenger and Barracuda
A bright future for Dodge muscle cars


By: Automobile Staff | Illustrated by: Radovan VaricakJuly 5, 2016

What we know
Even when the new-age Challenger launched eight years ago, it was a larger, less exciting car than its Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang foils. Both of those cars were overhauled recently, but the Challenger has yet to receive a major update. That will change with the smaller, lighter, all-new Challenger, which will share a rear-wheel-drive platform with the Alfa Romeo Giulia and continue to offer V-6 and Hemi V-8 options. And, yes, we expect to see a supercharged Hellcat model putting out at least 750 hp.

Compare to Toyota® Camry

Dodge is trying to play up its muscle-car image by further developing models such as the Challenger, the Charger, and the coming Barracuda. The plan is for Dodge to be the all-American, value-priced alternative to Alfa Romeo, which is targeting BMW. The Alfa-Dodge relationship is key to the future of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and the Challenger is its poster car. A nimbler, better-handling model should compete well with its Camaro and Mustang ponycar rivals.

Dodge Challenger
Where it could go wrong
FCA has delayed the launch of the Alfa Giulia, and while Marchionne says the issues are related to the model itself and not its platform, we wonder whether the new Challenger will be delayed as well. Also potentially affecting the Challenger’s future are the looming 2025 Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards. With Jeep and Ram accounting for some 62 percent of FCA’s U.S. sales, Marchionne might have some hard product decisions ahead.

When to expect it
Model year 2019


Dodge Barracuda
What we know
When the third-generation Plymouth Barracuda debuted for the 1970 model year, it shared its platform with the then-new-to-the-market Dodge Challenger. But the ’Cuda—available as a coupe as well as a convertible—was shorter and lighter than the Challenger and had its own distinct styling. The song remains much the same for the all-new, modern-era Barracuda, now a convertible-only model wearing a Dodge badge. Though it will share much of its components and powertrains with the all-new Challenger, including the platform plucked from the Alfa Romeo Giulia, it will be shorter and wear its own sheetmetal.

Why it matters
Building more cars on the Alfa Romeo Giulia platform means variety at a relatively low cost and allows niche products like the ’Cuda to actually come to life. One more model on the new Alfa platform is good for enthusiasts, for Alfa, and for FCA, and it means Dodge can take the ponycar fight directly to Chevy and Ford.

Where it could go wrong
FCA’s product plans have been fluid as of late, with CEO Sergio Marchionne aggressively seeking a bigger, healthier automaker to be FCA’s partner. Even if he succeeds, the new partner will direct its attention toward Jeep and Ram, not Dodge, and the two-model ponycar plan might become the one-model plan to save money.

When to expect it Model year 2019

I went to the races last weekend and saw all of dodges new hellcat models and some other badassery.


Not my video or even the same venue but the 2016 challenger drag pak is where it's at.. This dude is running 8.6 1/4 from a factory car..(like 113k msrp) That's insane, nobody on the road could touch these times, the fastest crotch rockets are like 2 seconds slower.
