2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: Quickest, Fastest, Most Powerful Factory Sedan Ever

When the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was announced, it was, easily, the most powerful muscle car in automotive history.  Not ashamed to repeat the same trick, Dodge is applying the same treatment onto the Charger.  That’s right, they made a 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, which the company is hailing as the “quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan ever.”

Described as “the world’s only four-door muscle car,” it runs a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine that produces a whopping 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.   Yep, all that power on a sedan.  Granted, the Charger has always been a frequent recipient of monster engines from Dodge, so this latest creation isn’t exactly surprising.

The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat can sprint from 0 to 60 in a mere 3.7 seconds, while clearing the quarter-mile in just 11 ticks.  If you refuse to take your foot off the gas, the car can reach speeds at a whopping 204 mph.  It comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission (no manual option), with standard Drive Mode controls for customizing the vehicle’s shift characteristics, throttle sensitivity, steering effort, damper stiffness, and traction control.

Other details include 15.4-inch Brembo brakes (the largest ever used in a Chrysler Group vehicle), 20 x 9.5-inch wide forged aluminum wheels, Pirelli P Zero performance tires, and adaptive damping three-mode suspension.  Inside, the car gets decked in premium soft-touch materials, a 7-inch TFT LCD digital instrument cluster, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

No pricing has been announced.
