The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is powered by the same engine (named Hellcat) that drives the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and like the latter, the output is mind blowing. Dodge engineers started with a 6.2-litre HEMI V8, then added a supercharger which bumps power to 707 horsepower. Total torque is 650 lb-ft, and it is available at very low RPM. Like the Challenger SRT Hellcat, drivers must use a specific red key to access the full power of the Charger SRT Hellcat.

All this power allows the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat to reach a top speed of 328 km/h while crossing the quarter-mile in 11.0 seconds. It takes 3.7 seconds to reach 100 km/h. Brembo brakes are called upon to slow down while 20-inch wheels and an adaptive suspension with three driving modes are standard.

An automatic 8-speed transmission will be the only available gearbox while the 6-speed manual transmission offered in the Challenger SRT Hellcat is not on the menu.

Dodge says the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat will be available early next year, but the manufacturer did not specify the price of the model nor confirmed whether it would be available in Canada.
