Dodge unveils its most powerful V8 in new Challenger SRT Hellcat

The all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT will boast a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi Hellcat engine, producing 717ps and 881Nm of torque. The impressive stats make it the most powerful Challenger, Dodge's most powerful V8, and the most powerful muscle car to date.

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 V8 supercharger technology.

For the first time in Chrysler Group history, the 2015 Challenger SRT comes with two key fobs – red and black. The red key fob is the only key that can unlock the full 717ps and torque potential of the Hellcat engine, while the black key fob limits the driver to a reduced engine output of 507ps.

In addition, the new Challenger has been redesigned and totally re-engineered, with performance-enhancing technologies inside and out, including a new TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission and a new interior inspired by the classic 1971 Challenger.

The Dodge and SRT line-up also includes the new 2015 Challenger SXT with its powerful and fuel-efficient Pentastar V6, coupled to the TorqueFlite 8-speed, that delivers 304ps and an estimated 30 miles per gallon; the Challenger R/T with the high-torque 5.7-liter Hemi now paired with the TorqueFlite 8-speed or 6-speed manual transmission; and the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI Challenger Scat Pack that delivers 485 horsepower and 644Nm of torque with the TorqueFlite 8-speed or 6-speed manual.

The Challenger and Challenger SRTs are built at the Brampton, Ontario, assembly plant and will start arriving in US Dodge dealerships in the third quarter of 2014.
