The updated four-door muscle car is expected to retain the 707bhp 6.2-litre V8 HEMI in its new avatar, which will have more sinister styling.
Dodge’s mighty four-door Charger SRT Hellcat is all set to get a makeover in a couple of months. And in the build up to the launch, Dodge has now released a teaser, showing the car’s new grille and a massive new air-take. Apart from this, Dodge is obviously tight-lipped on matters relating to the new model at the moment. That said, given the existing Charger SRT’s street cred, we can safely speculate a few things . . .
For the uninitiated, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is a full-blown, high-performance variant of the humble Charger sedan. However, think of it as a more practical version of the mental two-door Challenger SRT Hellcat. In fact, it won’t be wrong to call the Charger SRT a four-door muscle car. And the reason we say this is because the existing model comes with some serious American muscle – a 6.2-litre HEMI V8 that pumps out 707bhp and 881Nm of torque! Power is sent to rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission, and it’ll do a quarter-mile run in 11.0 seconds flat. Not to mention, its top-speed of 328km/h will leave some top-dog supercars trailing in its wake.
The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat still looks quite cool.
The 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is expected to retain the same powertrain, and one can’t possibly complain about it. Most of the updates are expected to be exterior refinements, which Dodge says will make it more ‘sinister-looking’.
Apart from the hardcore SRT Hellcat version, Dodge is expected to revamp the rest of the Charger variants. Additionally, Dodge is also working on an updated version of the Challenger SRT Hellcat, and it’ll be out in a couple of months.
