    2019 Dodge Challenger Teased, Could Hint At 797 HP Hellcat


    View: https://youtu.be/oXJVAmUPqy4


    The current Challenger SRT Hellcat features a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 developing 707 hp (527 kW) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque.

    In a new teaser video, Dodge provided a few glimpses of the 2019 Challenger while the whine of a supercharger is evident in the background. The screen then blacks out and shows “Lock: RED797_62818.”

    While that seems like typical Demon gibberish, the latter part of the message appears to be the date of 6-28-1. The RED797 is more mysterious but speculation naturally turns to a horsepower rating.

    After the Challenger began as a 2008 model. Dodge added the Hellcat for 2015, and the Demon came out as an 2018 model. “For ’19 we’re going to do a Redeye. It’s a Hellcat that’s been possessed by a Demon,” said Steve Beahm, head of Passenger Car Brands-Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, and Fiat for FCA North America.

    “We’ve got a Hellcat body, basically suspension and platform, and then we’ve got the Demon engine,” Beahm says in an interview. “It’s a little bit different calibration than the Demon engine.”

    The supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 generates 797 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque in the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, making it the most powerful production V-8 now that Dodge has stopped production of the Demon. It has an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    FCA says the Challenger Redeye is now the quickest muscle car with a claimed 0–60 mph time of 3.4 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 10.8 seconds at 131 mph with a top speed of 203 mph. The Demon, capable of 840 hp and 770 lb-ft on high-octane race fuel, has a claimed 0-to-60 mph in 2.3 seconds. Its 3,300-unit production run ended in May.

    The Redeye goes into production in Brampton, Ontario, this fall for delivery by the end of the year. It will top the 2019 Challenger lineup that still includes the SRT Hellcat, which boosts its performance to 717 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque. That is made possible with a new dual-snorkel hood that pays homage to muscle cars from the mid-’60s and early ’70s and is fully functional, providing maximum air intake. The left snorkel goes straight into the induction system and allows the engine to give the extra 10 hp.

    I assume it would be close to $100k for that car.

    The Charger I test drove earlier this year only had 485hp. I thought that was fast. I can't imagine having that much hp to play with.
