Details Revealed -2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat
Out of all the vehicles on the road today, no brand stands out as well as Dodge. Thanks to its iconic style, years of legendary horsepower, and other unique Dodge features like High Impact Paint colors, vehicles like the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger don’t go unnoticed. They’ve been several generations in the making, but the 2019 Dodge Challenger and 2019 Dodge Charger are starting to show off new designs, teased by the Fiat Chrysler Automobile Group. The 2019 model year will be revving up in a few months, and with so many great vehicles coming out, Dodge is getting ready to debut its own updates and upgrades as well with the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat trims.
Starting with the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, a vehicle that’s always known power, will be getting another slight boost. To hark back to the good ol’ days when the Challenger marked a new beginning for the history of the Dodge automotive brand, the automaker is paying a little tribute to past Mopar designs with a new retro dual-snorkel hood scoop. Said to be functional as well as stylish, the new hood scoop added to the look of the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will be feeding cool atmospheric air into the supercharger underneath the hood and directly behind the scoops. That means, more horsepower!
Along with the increase in capable horsepower potential, Dodge has said the Challenger SRT Hellcat may also take some design cues from their vehicle from Hell, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Starting to sound familiar? If these changes ring a bell, you’re not alone. We can’t help but be reminded of the Hellcat Drag Pack Dodge announced not too long ago that will give the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat a boost in power and rumored to add on Dodge SRT Demon looks. We’re currently waiting on that one, by the way. If you can’t wait, there’s always the Scat Pack Dynamics Package and Mopar’s 707hp Hellcrate. Either way, the 6.2-liter HEMI V8 might get a slight bump in power output according to Dodge.
Then there’s the younger sibling, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, also entering its 2019 model year with some new looks. The Dodge Charger has never been one to miss out on the power upgrades its superior, the Dodge Challenger, gets, aside from the Challenger SRT Demon trim. So going into 2019, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is getting a new front grille design that will also add a bit of horsepower to the vehicle.
Designed with a nostril-intake that will be integrated adjacent to the SRT Hellcat logo, the 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is getting its own take on a new, retro-style, functional hood scoop. This design may add just a small boost to the 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, but a little makes a large difference when it comes to muscle cars and powerful sedans. Along with this Dodge Charger refresh, the SRT Hellcat trim will also get some aesthetic changes to make it look more intimidating, as well as lose some weight for better driver control and handling.
Other Retro Dodge Vehicles
Have a special place in your heart for the classic Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models? Is the slight addition of some retro styling to the upcoming 2019 models not enough? Back in 2017, Dodge brought two old models back into the lineup to spice things up a bit. They were the Dodge Challenger TransAm and Dodge Charger Daytona.
Three trims for the Dodge Challenger TransAm (T/A), the Challenger T/A, T/A Plus, and T/A Plus 392) basically brought the Challenger T/A back to the present with updated and upgraded features to not only make the Challenger TransAm modern, but also the high performance vehicle it was meant to be before the 1973 oil crisis put a damper on performance cars. Likewise, to re-live its days of racing in NASCAR, Dodge also brought the Dodge Charger Daytona back to the stage. This model has two trims released, the Charger Daytona and Daytona 392, also designed with high-performance components and auto parts.
Good news for those retro fans, Dodge carried the T/A trims and the Daytona trims into the 2018 model year, so they’re still available. No word on these trims making it into 2019, but we should know more this summer, when Dodge plans to reveal all about the upcoming 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.
