The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is a known quantity around these parts, mainly because of its positively monstrous supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that pumps out 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. All of that power is sent to the rear wheels which will quickly turn into a smoky mess if you want to do some glorious burnouts. While we always thought that the Charger SRT Hellcat had muscle car good looks, the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody makes this hulking sedan look downright devilish. The widebody fenders are 3.5 inches wider both up front and out back and are standard on all 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat models. With those wider fenders comes wider wheels and tires -- the wheels...

Dodge is more than doing its part to keep the traditional American muscle car alive. Its 2019 line of Challengers includes that beastly not-quite-a-Demon SRT Hellcat Redeye packing 797hp and selling for around $70,000. While that price tag might be a bargain for what you get for the money, it's still well out of reach for lots of muscle car and drag racing fans out there. Dodge has now unveiled a much more affordable car with drag racers in mind called the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320. The car uses a 392 HEMI V-8 engine that makes 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque with an 8-speed TorqueFlite transmission. It is packed with drag tech from the no defunct SRT Demon. Standard features for... Read more...
Muscle car fans were giddy last week when Dodge announced the 2019 Challenger lineup as there are several high-performance models in the mix. The loss of the Demon for the 2019 model year will make some fans sad, but the new SRT Hellcat Redeye almost makes up for it. Dodge gave us specs on that Redeye and the other Challenger models save pricing and when they would be available. Dodge has now offered base pricing on the entire 2019 Challenger line. The Challenger R/T will start at $34,100 for 2019. The more muscular Challenger R/T Scat Pack will start at $38,995 plus a $1,000 gas guzzler tax on the manual transmission model. The brutish Challenger SRT Hellcat will start at $58,650 plus a... Read more...
Dodge is really into muscle cars and it's a wonderful thing. The SRT Demon is out of production now with the last one rolling off the assembly line early this month and the burly 9.65-second quarter mile runner will be missed. But don’t fret, Dodge has something new for you in the form of a hotter Hellcat. Dodge packs 707hp into the normal Hellcat and for 2019 the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye channels a bit of the Demon and ups its game with a revised supercharged Hemi engine. Dodge says that the Redeye uses its most powerful V8 engine with 797hp and 707 lb-ft of torque. With the Demon gone, the Redeye is now the quickest production muscle car with a 0-60mph time of 3.4 seconds. This beast... Read more...
It hasn't been that long since Fiat-Chrysler first announced the sweet Challenger SRT Demon was coming to sit atop the Dodge muscle car line. The beast packs in 840hp and a bunch of other features to make it a true monster at the strip capable of 9.65-second runs in the quarter mile. Dodge was always clear that the Demon was a limited-edition car with only 3,300 units slated to be built. The very last Demon, number 3,300, has rolled off the FCA Canadian assembly line and it won’t go into some museum somewhere never to be seen again. Dodge is taking that special car and putting it up for auction with 100% of the proceeds going to charity. The last Demon is being combined with the last... Read more...
Our men and women in blue have one of the toughest and oftentimes thankless jobs in the world. It is a dangerous world out there and while police officers have taken on the mission of serving and protecting the public, they have to watch their own behinds as well. To help with that, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has teamed up with InterMotive Inc. of Auburn, California to equip 2017 Dodge Charger Pursuit law enforcement vehicles with rear-facing cameras and radars. These specially equipped cameras and radars can detect movement behind the vehicle, essentially giving police officers eyes in the back of their heads. "This technology is designed to prevent an officer from being ambushed from the rear... Read more...
Let's be real, nobody needs 475 horses underneath the hood to get the kids to soccer practice or to fetch groceries from the local food chain. But do we want it? You bet your shiny 'soccer parent' bumper sticker, we do! And Dodge is going to deliver it with its new 2018 model Durango SRT, a three-row SUV with a 392-cubic-inch Hemi V8 engine kicking out a burly 475-horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. What that translates to on the drag strip, in case you get sidetracked from hauling the family to-and-fro, is a 0-60 miles per hour time of 4.4 seconds. That is a quarter-mile time of 12.9 seconds, as certified by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). Unless it's tricked out with some major upgrades,... Read more...
  If you thought that the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was the ultimate in over-the-top MOPAR excess, you haven’t seen anything yet. In case you didn’t get the memo, the Challenger SRT Hellcat is powered by a beastly, supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine that cranks out a staggering 707 horsepower and 650 foot-pounds of torque.Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat The Challenger SRT Hellcat is capable of ripping off 3.7-second 0-60 times and can cover the 1/4-mile dash in 11.7 seconds at a staggering 125 mph.

Some people take Grand Theft Auto V a little too seriously, either that or just live that sort of life for real. Houston police officers have just announced that they have arrested two men accused of stealing at least thirty Dodge and Jeep vehicles with a laptop computer and a simple software hack.  Michael Arce has been charged with with felon in possession of a weapon, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

The police have been watching them for a while, but were unable to catch them in the act until last Friday. Michael Armando Arce (left)... Read more...
Have you wanted a Dodge Viper, but have held back simply because it's not designed for track use? I feel you. Fortunately, Dodge does, too, as its brand-new 2016 ACR model proves. Dodge says that this 'American Club Racer' model is the fastest-ever street-legal track Viper ever, and if the mere thought of driving this beaut around a bendy track doesn't trigger some excitement, I'm not sure what will. Under the ACR's hood is an 8.4-liter V-10 all-aluminum overhead-valve engine that pushes 645 horsepower and tremendous 600 pound-feet of torque, something Dodge claims is the highest of any naturally aspirated sports car engine. Have a need for speed? The Viper ACR delivers, with a top speed of 177... Read more...
Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman narrates an interesting 17-minute video on YouTube that pits the world's quickest sedan against the world's fastest sedan, those two being the Tesla Model S P85D and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, respectively, both 2015 variants. Before getting to the results, it's important to understand the difference. As the video begins, Lieberman offers a basic explanation of the difference between quick and fast, and by extension, torque and horsepower. It goes like this -- hitting 60 miles per hour in just three seconds is super quick, but if the top speed is only 60MPH, you can't say the car is fast. By that same token, a car that can go 200MPH is really fast, but it's not quick... Read more...
Jay Leno isn't just a talk show host, he's also a car enthusiast. In the latest episode of his Garage YouTube video series, Leno shows off Chrysler's ferocious Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, a beastly muscle car for the modern era with a 6.2-liter Hemi supercharged V8 engine kicking out 707 horsepower and 650 pounds of torque. Specs of this awesome automobile are all over the web, including here at HotHardware, but just as interesting as the Hellcat's ability to go from zero to a quarter-mile in 10.8 seconds while hitting 126 miles per hour is touring the vehicle in high definition. You get that opportunity in Leno's video, followed by a test drive. And of course you get Leno's humor sprinkled... Read more...
With all due respect to Jackson Galaxy, the famed cat behaviorist featured on Animal Planet's "My Cat From Hell," some cats just aren't meant to be tamed. Dodge's 2015 model Challenger SRT with its supercharged 6.2 Hemi V8 engine, also known as the Hellcat, is one of them. The Hellcat engine in what Dodge is pimping as "the most powerful muscle car ever" outputs 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft of torque, though if that's too much for your commute around town, just use the black key fob to limit the engine to 500 horsepower. When you need the added power -- at the racetrack or when some punk kid in a souped-up Civic revs his engine at a red light (on an abandoned road, of course) -- the red key... Read more...
