Always Rising to the Challenge
From the 2020 Dodge Challenger lineup, four of the nine trims are SRTs. There's the SRT Hellcat with an MSRP of $71,046 that features 20 x 9.5-inch SRT low-gloss black performance wheels, the SRT Hellcat Widebody with an MSRP of $78,006 and wider fender flares, the SRT Hellcat Redeye for MSRP $86,706 and featuring a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, and finally the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody for MSRP $93,666 that comes with 305/35ZR20 all-season performance tires.
There are also three of the five available engines that belong to the SRT lineup. They start with the 6.4 L SRT HEMI V8 with 485 horsepower, 475 lb-ft of torque, and a combined fuel efficiency of 13 L/100 km. Then there is the 6.2 L Supercharged HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 with 717 horsepower, 656 lb-ft of torque, and 14.5 L/100 km of fuel efficiency.
Last but far from least is the High-Output 6.2 L Supercharged HEMI SRT Hellcat Redeye V8 boasting an incredible 797 horsepower, 707 lb-ft of torque, and getting you a combined fuel efficiency of 14.5 L/100 km. All three engines are paired with the advanced-tech TorqueFlight 8-speed automatic transmission that feels like a manual with a T-handle electronic shifter and standard Auto/Stick feature to shift like you're back in manual.
Just when you thought the Dodge Challenger SRT couldn't get much better, we'd also like to remind you that it boasts Class-Exclusive all-wheel-drive for all-weather control. SRT drive modes will allow you to configure horsepower, transmission shift speeds, steering, paddle shifters, traction, suspension, and Launch Control with Line Lock. You'll love taking the Challenger SRT out on the open road where there's enough space to easily accommodate its significant size. SRT models are reminiscent of the 1970 Dart Swinger and the 1971 Demon thanks to the dual-snorkel hood.
Inside, however, is where you'll get to experience a whole other world with luxurious touches and the latest technology. The design is centered on the driver, with an ergonomically placed gauge cluster and controls as well as standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. You'll also get outstanding support thanks to the 10-way power driver's seat including 4-way lumbar for the optimal driving position.
