First teaser of 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is showing the first change on the new muscle car. This is the throwback to 1960’s and 70’s. However, this is the only clue so far about the upcoming vehicle. Whatsoever, there are some rumors about other changes, design, and specs.
This teaser is definitely showing some things. The company will debut with 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat very soon. After some while, we will see another teaser or the official debut of the concept. Then, fans will have more detail available for analysis. The new Dodge Challenger Hellcat could raise the bar with the output. The current model delivers 707 hp, a class-leading result. Special SRT Demon version is able to go even higher. However, 700 horses are enough to compete with Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.
2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat price
The starting price of the regular Challenger is way beyond the SRT Hellcat. The new model will go over $70,000. It is already worth twice as the base car. Whatsoever, the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is worth any penny. Comparing to similar vehicles, the Chevy Camaro ZL1 costs about $5,000 less. Another archrival Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R is coming with a similar price. Both models are expecting big modifications for next season, and that brings the price boost.
2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat specs
Under the hood of the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is going to be again the same unit that powers the current vehicle. It is a 6.2-liter V-8. With a help from the turbocharger, the unit is bursting 707 ponies. This is the best output in the class. Nevertheless, other companies are working hard to beat this. Some specially tuned pony cars are above 707 horsepower. Whatsoever, these are not official production models. So, we must wait the next season to see if any other muscle car can beat it.
The engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. Buyers will have a choice to pick automatic gearbox with eight paces. Performance is pretty much the same, but the impression of changing gears on this beast is missing. Through both options, wheels are getting 650 pound-feet of torque. The 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat will use only an AWD. With such praise on the previous model, we doubt this system can disappoint on the new one.
Gas mileage and performance
The 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is not the best vehicle if you carry about fuel economy. The car is consuming 17 mpg combined. Its 22 mpg on the highway is somehow acceptable. The automatic gearbox is taking slightly more fuel. The Hellcat SRT version can sprint to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Demon
If the SRT Hellcat version is delivering unbelievable performance, then Demon model will stun every car fan. The muscle car which can produce between 810 and 850 horses is on the way. What is interesting, the same 6.2-liter V-8 Hemi engine consumes the same amount of fuel as regular 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. However, Demon will have an advantage in torque level, which can reach 770 pound-feet.
2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat changes
It is hard to predict what designers are cooking for 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Teaser image unveils dual snorkel on the hood. This reminds us of old vehicles when these cars were the most popular vehicles in the industry. Nevertheless, other features are unknown yet. Dodge will be aggressive, that is for sure.
Inside the vehicle, we will find sportier seats with premium equipment. Huge touchscreen display with control buttons on the steering wheel are boosting overall command easiness. Shift knob could get a look from some of the old Challengers. Unique gauges are impossible to find on other models which carry the Dodge badge.
