Dodge Challenger SRT HELLCAT Review

07 Jun, 2022 09:59 AM

Expert Review by Maxabout

Overview

If modern automobiles could be sent back to the '60s and '70s, they would undoubtedly look out of place. But the 2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is one that could fit right in. Yes, the coupe's array of convenient driver assists and crisp touchscreen infotainment system would be out of place, but its roaring V-8, fuel-guzzling economy, and retro presence would fit right in. Challenger has been around for over a decade in its prevailing form and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, despite the continual legislation tightening around vehicle emissions, still lives on. But while its peers like the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 have sacrificed absolute power for the capability to corner and coarse trails with grace and pace, the Hellcat abandons these attributes in favour of conventional muscle car charm.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Design and Style

The Dodge Challenger lacks nowhere in terms of design and style. The overall architecture is robust and pony style. Till now, the Challenger carries its traditional design language with twin projector headlamps with ‘O’ ring DRLs. The massive blacked-out rectangular framework and Challenger emblem enclose the headlights.

They wholly enclosed the lower segment of the bumper is wholly enclosed with the same cluttered blah some plastic inserts. There are either one or two big hood lifts given on the at is fairly suitable and serve in the cooling of the gas sucking V6/V8 effectively. gas's cooling, the sides are drawn up adding to its muscular look. Whereas, on the side, the black-polished alloy wheels are fitted with 275/40ZR20 rubber and the back carries a larger tail light with a spoiler.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Engine and Gearbox

The Dodge Challenger SRT houses a 6162cc supercharged 6.2L, 8-Cylinder, HEMI SRT V8 motor which is mated with an 8-Speed Automatic Torque Flite Unit with paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. The RWD V8 motor generates 707 HP of maximum power @ 6000 RPM and 880 Nm of peak torque @ 4000 RPM.

Aggressive use of the loud pedal is accompanied by a spine-tingling supercharger whine, which is punctuated by ferocious acceleration. While traction can be an issue off the line, there's nothing holding the SRT Hellcat back once it's on the move. The manual model is clearly more engaging but chooses the automatic for the effective sprint times. It'll disappear into the background at a jaunt, but jabbing the throttle will get the auto 'box instantly drift into a lower gear and move you back into your seat as the V8 howls.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Suspension, Brakes and Tyres

The braking and suspension are some of the extremely significant in a performance strength machine. The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has a pretty impressive impeding and halt system. It bears 390 mm Ventilated Discs in the front and 350 mm Ventilated Discs in the rear. Short And Long Arm Front Suspension W/Coil Springs in the front and Multi-Link Rear Suspension W/Coil Springs in the back handle the suspension tasks. Pirelli tyres are standard on all Dodge Hellcats. 275-wide rubber is used on automobiles with 20-by-9.5-inch wheels, whereas 305-wide rubber is used on widebody cars with 11-inch-wide wheels.

Interior and Infotainment of Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

They fixed the Challenger interior up for the 2015 model with a driver-essential design, clear switchgear, and good elements. The SRT twins have standard leather regalia, unique badging and gauge paints, and fierce and vented front seats. Despite its spacious cabin, the plastics still look poor, and visibility to the back is unsatisfactory. The Dodge had six carry-on in its trunk and a remarkable 15 outright with the rear seat tucked. None of the automobiles tested was especially proficient at keeping minor things, but the Challenger at least involves a huge centre console bin, and there's a practical slot to hold a smartphone.

Both models exhibit a UConnect infotainment system that is easy to operate and packed with features. These comprise navigation, a loud stereo, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The model 8.4-inch touchscreen is effectively extensive and features icons that can be conveniently selected with a finger. There are volume and tuning knobs for active audio-system alterations. While the navigation responds promptly to inputs with a broad on-screen keyboard, the map visuals look dated and cartoony.

Key features of Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

The SRT Hellcat is well-equipped with features like dual-zone air-conditioning (including ventilation outlets at the back), illuminated front cup holders, a seven-inch reconfigurable digital display between the speedometer and rev counter, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an eight-way adjustable (six-way power-adjustable) driver's seat, heated front seats, a universal garage-door opener, a heated steering wheel, and a manually tilting/telescoping steering column. Hill-start assist, a rearview camera, the ParkSense rear parking assist system, and a tire-pressure monitoring system are all included in the Dodge SRT Hellcat's safety features. On the options, the list is features like a power sunroof, and rain-sensing windshield wipers, along with driver aids like blind-spot monitoring, auto high beams, forward-collision warning, and rear cross-path detection.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Top Speed and Mileage

You can do the burnouts with the power from the motor going to the rear wheels. The engine does the 0-100 km/h run in 3.6 seconds and this is blisteringly fast. The Dodge Challenger gets 5.5 kmpl in the city and 9.35 kmpl on the highway from its 78-litre fuel tank.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Color Options

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is available in 14 colour shades; Granite Pearlcoat, Indigo Blue, Smoke Show, Triple Nickel Clearcoat, F8 Green, Go Mango, Frostbite, Stinger Yellow Clearcoat (Build Out: 10/07/2021), Hellraisin, Octane Red Pearlcoat, Sinamon Stick, Pitch Black Clearcoat, TorRed Clearcoat and White Knuckle Clearcoat.

The starting price of the SRT Hellcat in the US is approximately $66,000 which is around INR 51 lakh and goes up to around $85,000 (INR 66 lakh approx) but because of the import duties and various other charges involved, it would be priced between Rs 53 lakh to Rs 1.3 crore approximately.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Competitors

The closest competitors to the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat are Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, Toyota Supra and Dodge Charger.

Conclusion

If we talk about the India launch of this muscle car, we'd say the odds are slim because the brand has no presence in the Indian market. For a brand, it is very important to have a good network/customer base to launch new products into the market.

Apart from this, the Dodge Challenger is expensive and the company will bring the car via the CKD route and sell the car by assembling it in India itself. Which makes the car more expensive. So owning a Dodge Challenger in India, the only way you can go, is the import route, import the muscle car from another country after converting it to the Indian driving standards.
