Super-Charged and Ready to Hit the Highway – The 2017 Dodge Challenger Hellcat
What do you get when you combine 1970’s retro-styling, an amped up attitude and a supercharged 6.2L SRT HEMI® V8 engine? A beast of a coupe, better known as the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Edition. Dare to take the red key and unleash the fury that this 707hp engine possesses!
An engine with this type of strength demands tested and durable components. The supercharged 6.2L SRT Hellcat HEMI® V8 engine features a forged-steel crankshaft and induction-hardened bearing surfaces, high-strength alloy pistons, powder-forged connecting rods, high-load capacity bushings and carbon-coated piston pins. A precisely tuned crank damper is also part of the engine and has been tested up to 13,000rpm!
The Challenger Hellcat has a Supercharger that houses both an internal cooling system and integrated electronic bypass valve. Air streams through the engine’s air box via the Air Catcher™ Inlet Port located in the parking lamp on the driver’s side of the vehicle. Airflow is controlled by a 92mm throttle body that first sends air to the Supercharger, then thru the air charger coolers and lastly into the inlet port.
Two transmission options make this cougar of a coupe an exciting ride for any driver. The available TorqueFlite® 8-speed transmission has extra enhancements to withstand the pure power of the 650lb-ft of torque unleashed by the engine, including additional piston gears and five more clutch pack discs. The automatic engine also has available Dodge Performance pages, paddle shifts, and a standard Sport mode that helps lower shift times from 350 to 250ms. For the purist, Dodge helps you keep the passion alive with a heavy duty TREMEC ® six-speed manual transmission that puts the power right into your hands. Both transmission systems come with two key fobs; the red key unlocks the full fury of the Hellcat’s 707 horsepower engine, while the black key restricts the power to 500hp.
