Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Is The Most Powerful Muscle Car Ever -- 707
July 1, 2014, Auburn Hills, Mich. - The all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT,
with its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat engine, produces an
unprecedented 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most
powerful Challenger ever, Dodge's most powerful V-8 ever and the most powerful
muscle car ever.
The Challenger's new 6.2-liter Supercharged Hellcat engine is also the first
factory supercharged HEMI, as well as Dodge and SRT's first application of V-8
supercharger technology. For the first time in Chrysler Group history, the
all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT with a Hellcat engine comes standard with
two key fobs -- red and black. The red key fob is the only key that can unlock
the full 707 horsepower and torque potential of the Challenger SRT Hellcat
engine; while the black key fob limits the driver to a reduced engine output
of 500 horsepower.
In addition to the awe-inspiring 707 horsepower of the new Hellcat HEMI, the
new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been redesigned and totally
re-engineered to be the most true-to-form muscle coupe on the market with
performance-enhancing technologies inside and out, including the new
TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-new interior
inspired by the classic 1971 Challenger.
The Dodge and SRT brands now offer the most complete lineup of muscle cars in
the market, including the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT with its standard
powerful and fuel-efficient Pentastar V-6 engine combined with the TorqueFlite
eight-speed transmission that delivers 300 horsepower and an estimated 30
miles per gallon; the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T with the high-torque 5.7-liter
HEMI now paired with the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual
transmission; and the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI Challenger Scat Pack that
delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque with the TorqueFlite
eight-speed or six-speed manual.
The 2015 Dodge Challenger and Challenger SRTs are built at the Brampton,
Ontario, Assembly Plant and will start arriving in Dodge dealerships in the
third quarter of 2014.
The Dodge brand is tearing into its centennial year as America's mainstream
performance brand, celebrating its 100th anniversary on July 1, 2014. With the
purification of the brand and consolidation with SRT, Dodge is getting back to
