The ‘Hellcat” Challenger has been one of the worst kept secrets. For months now the rumors and spy leaks have been coming out and turned the reveal of the Challenger from a “is it happening?” to a “when is it happening?” The time is finally over and Chrysler is showing off officially the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Dodge is aiming to remind auto fans just how powerful a muscle car can be.
The V-8 that resides within is the most powerful engine that Chrysler has ever produced. So powerful in fact that Chrysler is stating the Hellcat will be capable of producing more than 600 hp. The Hellcat model also comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission, with 30-percent more engine torque than any other Chrysler vehicle with an eight-speed.
The interior design of the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat shows Chrysler’s continued promise to augment their vehicles with a refined look and comfort. The instrument cluster screens keep the driver updated with the information such as speed or peak G-forces. It is capable of really showing the driver the sheer force and power in the Challenger.
The 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat is bringing the focus back to muscle cars and what they are capable of doing when given the right tools. Keep your eyes peeled on this one as more information comes out.

Change is in the air for Dodge. Chrysler announced that two Dodge mainstays will be getting dropped from the brand due to their direct competition with similar models. Dodge will be saying goodbye to the Grand Caravan and the Avenger. Chrysler believes they are competing too closely with the Town & Country and the 200 sedan.
The company’s reason is to move Chrysler to the forefront. They have chosen for the main brand to be the mainstream brand and want to focus the Dodge vehicle more on sport and high-performance vehicles. Because of this, SRT will be consolidated with Dodge and their powerful creations will sport the familiar Dodge halo.
Dodge is planning on giving their current vehicles a revamp to match the new image for Dodge. While the Charger and Challenger are already going to be getting one with their upcoming new versions, the Dart and the Journey will be getting a revamp further down the line.
While it is said to see some popular models go, it does make sense for Chrysler. For a long while now, they’ve been directly competing with themselves with minivans and sedans. If this allows them to focus on one superior product, both the company and the consumer will be the better for it. Still, sad to see them go.
