2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will still be on the market one more year, in spite of all rumors and even official announcements from the Dodge that we heard last year. As the matter of fact, the manufacturer drove the new model on test driving completely uncovered, showing that design is finalized and future buyers may expect it by the end of the year. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has still not confirmed which engine will be offered in this model, so we are forced on guessing and predicting in accordance with the current model.
As we said, the manufacturer freely showed 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat on test driving so basic shape and design is actually here. Firstly we saw is redesigned hood, which has been changed from the last model with one wide air intake to present two-vent vintage hood that recalls on old days in 70’s. This hood surely allows more air to the engine, which leads to the conclusion that the new engine will be stronger than or at least as strong as on the current model. There is a slight change in the grille, too, which is thinner and modernized, made in shape of rhomb. Otherwise, the car is muscular sporty car came back from the 70’s and has the same muscular but modern shape with sloped roof and long rear end. Chassis that was used on last models was adopted from Mercedes, while the new one is taken from Alfa Romeo Giorgio Platform, which is a significant change from the last model. However, even though the manufacturer has not clearly said that the new Charger should also be redesigned in the future as Challenger.
The cabin in 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was not visible on photos and test driving, so we were not able to see it, but we expect sporty cabin as on current model with numerous sporty details, like pedals, decoration on the steering wheel and much more.
The engine in 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is maybe the most attractive and interesting in this model since the manufacturer has not confirmed that it will be the same as before, but also has not said anything new about it. You remember that current model has a supercharged V8 model with 707 horsepower which could be increased to 840 horsepower strong model for $6,000 more on the base price. Some rumors say that we could expect one more version, called Drag Pack that offers mid-engine with 725 horsepower of strength. If this is true, this package could have Nitto tires, Trans Brake and torque reserve function, all in order to increase the strength to 75%.
2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Release Date and Price
Since the manufacturer already drives 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat without protection that means that new model is almost there. The price for the last model was around $65,000 for the base model, so expect at least that number. Among competitors are models like Chevrolet Chevelle SS, Pontiac Trans am, Chevrolet Camaro, Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Shelby 350GT Mustang, and Ford Mustang GT500.
