Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge-Charger SRT Hellcat

The New 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Has Demon DNA

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge-Charger SRT Hellcat

Back when we received a tease about the 2019 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat trims, there wasn’t much Dodge seemed inclined on sharing. There were two teaser images, a profile for the Challenger SRT Hellcat and a look at its new hood, and another teaser image for the Charger SRT Hellcat with a focus on its front fascia grille. There was talk about improving horsepower, maybe a new Hellcat engine, and even some SRT Demon bits thrown in to keep the gates of Hell open a little longer. Summer is here, and as promised, Dodge released more news about their 2019 high-powered sedan.

Recap of What’s New

In case we’re not all caught up here, there is a lot of talk about stretching the horsepower of the Dodge SRT Hellcat trims by a little for 2019. With the not-so-amazing reception of the SRT Demon, Dodge is using the experience and the technology used to develop the SRT Demon engine to improve upon what already works – a muscle car that is more inclined to be used on the street, but can still burn up the race track. With this in mind, it can’t be a coincidence that Dodge is also going with a more iconic look to pay homage to its heritage, once again, for 2019.

2019 Dodge Challenger and Charger Teased

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Teased

Dodge’s heritage is one of those things that will always make Dodge vehicles like the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger unmistakable from the other muscle cars in the market. With 2018 heading into the summer, that means vehicles for the 2019 model year will start to make their appearances. With that comes the teasing and debuts of many concepts and changes for some of our favorites. Most recently is the tease Dodge gave us about the new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

From what one can see in the image below, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will be getting a new retro dual-snorkel hood scoop inspired by classic Mopar designs to pay tribute to its heritage way back when the Dodge Challenger first began. The first Dodge Challenger made its introduction in 1970. It was the first-generation Dodge Challenger that also introduced the Dodge Challenger Trans Am, or T/A for short, along with the R/T (Road/Track) trim. Both of these vehicles were made for racing on the strip or driving in the streets – sound familiar?

Is A Lot of Horsepower All That Necessary?


With performance cars as powerful and fast as the 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, sometimes people ask us if all that speed really necessary or if all that horsepower really is worth it? Does someone really need all of that power to have a good time? It may be fun on the speedway, but who really needs 707 horsepower to hit the road and have a good time? Sure, there’s a bit of an adrenaline rush, and the feeling of hitting a g-force or two will be one to remember, but is it any better than hopping in a sporty sedan and cruising down the highway?

Someone looking for speed, should look for no other vehicle other than the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Powered by a 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8 SRT Demon® engine, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon comes with 97 new parts integrated into the engine, including a new crankshaft, new connecting rods, new pistons, a new steel camshaft, and a new valvetrain, to read a maximum output of 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 2.3 seconds, and covers a quarter mile in 9.65 seconds at a a max speed of 140.09 mph. Unless visiting the local speedways in Miami often, then what’s the point? It’ll be tough to enjoy all of that horsepower without getting pulled over every couple of minutes.

There’s other Dodge vehicles that are great to get, like the Dodge Charger. One doesn’t need to go too high with it. The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack has a starting MSRP of $39,995 and is powered by a 392 V8 SRT® HEMI® MDS engine, with an output of half the horsepower (485hp) and is still very fun to drive. Plus, with the Scat Pack Dynamics Package by Dodge and the Hellcat Drag Pack, if speed is really the reason to buy a car, may as well try to do it on a budget with Hellcat style and a boost of power. Your insurance bill will thank you.

The Chevrolet Corvette is known for its speed and prowess, but let’s go a little smaller. Take the Chevy Camaro. Also known for speed and power, but the base trim (1LS) starts at $26,900. Powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter SIDI engine with variable valve timing, it only has an output of 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. With all the packages and options offered, anyone can make their Camaro look like the high-tier top of the line without breaking the sound barrier.

Other automakers make great vehicles that are fun to drive without break 100 units of horsepower. Mitsubishi Motors has a fun little hatchback, the Mitsubishi Mirage, only able to generate a maximum of 78 horsepower, powered by a 1.2-liter MIVEC DOHC three-cylinder engine. Due to the low horsepower, not only will insurance get cheaper, but so will the weekly visit to the gas station. The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage gets 37 mpg in the city, 43 mpg on the highway.

If looking to break at least 100 units of horsepower, Kia Motors is another automaker that makes great cars without breaking the bank or the speed limit. The 2018 Kia Optima is spacious, stylish, and fun to drive. With options like a 2.4-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine, able to generate 185 horsepower, or a turbocharged 2.0-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine, able to generate 245 horsepower.

Of course, is looking for that muscle car style while keeping the safety of a sports sedan, then the new 2018 Kia Stinger is the way to go. Dressed up like a coupe, able to generate up to 365 horsepower when powered by a twin turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 engine, this is the vehicle revolutionizing the auto industry. Winning awards from AutoGuide, Roadshow by CNET, and other big names have announced awards for the 2018 Kia Stinger. With a starting MSRP of $31,000*, it’s a great vehicle to get while keeping the pocketbook in check and the tires from melting.

According to CarScoops.com, the average horsepower most drivers want is 300hp. It’s enough to have fun without burning through too much fuel or cash. But what do you think? Is more really better? Whatever your fancy, we have Dodge, Mitsubishi, Chevrolet, and Kia all at Miami Lakes Automall.

Similarities + Differences Between Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger


Just like some people have a hard time being able to tell twins apart from one another, some people have a hard time distinguishing the Dodge Challenger from a Dodge Charger, but just like twins, the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger both have their own unique qualities, but they also have a lot in common, too. If you are one of the people that just can’t seem to ever remember which Dodge muscle car you see whizzing past you, here are a couple similarities and differences between the two.

Size + Doors

The Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger are very similar in size and they are both five passenger vehicles. The Dodge Charger is just over 198 inches and the Dodge Challenger is a hair under 198 inches, however, the Dodge Charger has four doors and the Dodge Challenger has two doors.

Exterior Design

The Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger have pretty different exterior designs, but one thing that’s for sure is they both have an aggressive look that lets people know they are muscle cars without ever hearing the sound of the engine. Specifically speaking though, the Dodge Challenger has a more of a traditional muscle car look and the Dodge Charger has a more modern look.

From the front to the back, the Dodge Challenger is designed to look like a blocky, widebody muscle car. Just like the original designs of the Dodge Charger and the Dodge Challenger, the 2018 Dodge Challenger has a front grille, headlights and taillights that stretch the entire width of the vehicle.Just like the original Dodge Challenger, the 2018 Challenger has four round headlights and the taillights are two long rectangles that are separated in the middle of the vehicle by “DODGE.”

Additionally, Dodge took the Challenger’s traditional muscle car look a bit further for the 2018 model year. Instead of just making the Challenger look like a widebody muscle car with its blocky design, wide grille and wide tail lights, Dodge actually made two widebody Challenger models. The new Challenger models that have the wider stance are the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody and the Challenger SRT Demon, and they both have fender flares that are 3.5 inches wider than non-widebody Challenger models.

In comparison to the Challenger, the 2018 Dodge Charger has a curvier front end and the headlights aren’t round, there are only two instead of four, and they don’t look like they are embedded into the grille like they do on the Challenger. In the rear, the Charger has a long strip of tail lights, which is a trait of the original Dodge Charger models.


Up until the 2018 model year, the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger had identical engine lineups. The Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger were both available with the same four engines, the 3.6L V6 engine, 5.7L HEMI V8 engine, 6.4L HEMI V8 engine and the supercharged 6.2L HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine. However, in 2018 a new engine was added to the Dodge Challenger lineup, and it is the most powerful engine Dodge has ever made. The new engine is the supercharged 6.2L HEMI Demon V8 engine and it produces a record-breaking 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque.


Starting in 2017, the Challenger and Charger were both offered with rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. Previous to 2017, AWD was only an available option on the Charger, so that gave the Charger a bit of an edge over the Challenger for consumers living in places that experience ice and snow, but now customers can get the same handling with either model.

Shaker Hood

If you ever see a modern-day Dodge muscle car and it has a “thing” sticking out of the middle of the hood, that is a shaker, and the model you are looking at is a Dodge Challenger. A shaker is a air intake that is mounted on the top of the hood, and it is only available on the Dodge Challenger.

You can come take a look at the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger at Miami Lakes Automall. Once you see both vehicles up close, you’ll be able to figure out which one you want to take home.

2018 Dodge Challenger Engine Guide


Dodge and SRT have worked really hard to make the Dodge Challenger THE muscle car to get, and all of that hard work has resulted in the most powerful muscle car model lineup, as well as the most diverse lineup. The 2018 Dodge Challenger lineup is made up of 16 trims and five different engine options — that’s a lot more than the Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang combined! While all of those options give consumers a lot more options and ways to get exactly what they want, all of those options can also make the shopping process a little confusing, at first. So we’re here to take a closer look at the 2018 Dodge Challenger lineup.

Power and Performance

There is one major decision consumers need to make before buying any muscle car – do I want a muscle car for the look or do I want the muscle car for power? All three muscle car manufacturers (Dodge, Chevy and Ford) make their muscle car models available with fairly standard engines as well as extremely powerful engines, and the difference between the standard and performance engines results in performance, practicality as well as overall cost. Consumers that want a muscle car that can double as a daily driver and something to have fun in, will likely want to go for a model with a more standard engine, while consumers that want to go fast and cruise around town on the weekends will want one a model with a performance engine. However, Dodge offers three different levels of daily drivers and performance cars, which is not available on the Ford Mustang or Chevy Camaro lineup.

2018 Daily Drivers

There are plenty of options for buyers that don’t want a high performance model, which is a Challenger equipped with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine or a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine. Furthermore, the Challenger is the only muscle car that is available with all-wheel-drive, so it is a great daily driver even for those that live in places that experience snow and ice.

3.6L V6 Engine

The 3.6L engine produces 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, which is an excellent amount of power for traveling on the highway or in the city. The 3.6L engine makes the Dodge Challenger a great daily driver because it is powerful, but not so powerful that the Challenger is a gas guzzler. When equipped with a 3.6L engine, the Challenger averages 30 mpg on the highway, which is excellent.

Since Dodge intended the Challenger trims equipped with the 3.6L V6 engine to be more practical daily driver options, they come standard with an automatic transmission, which is not a standard option on the Ford Mustang or Chevy Camaro.

5.7L HEMI V8 Engine

The other engine that makes the Challenger a practical daily driver is the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine. The 5.7L HEMI V8 engine increases the Dodge Challenger’s horsepower to 375 horses and 410 lb-ft of torque, which definitely improves the Challenger’s acceleration and speed in comparison to the 3.6L engine, but its not an overwhelming amount of power. Dodge Challenger models equipped with a 5.7L engine average 25 mpg on the highway, which is great for such a powerful vehicle.

Dodge designed the Challenger trims that are equipped with the 5.7L engine to feel a little more like a muscle car than the trims that are equipped with the 3.6L engine, so these models come standard with a TREMEC 6-speed manual transmission, which makes drivers feel more in control of the vehicle, but the 8-speed automatic transmission is an available option.

In addition to the manual transmission, all of the Challenger trims that come standard with the 5.7L engine feature some type of unique design that pays tribute to the Challenger’s muscle car heritage. R/T stands for “Road/Track” and all of the Challenger R/T trims come with R/T badges, a badge that goes all the way back to 1970. Challenger Shaker models feature a shaker hood, which adds a vintage look to the Challenger, while also increasing performance. Finally, the 2018 Challenger T/A trims are inspired by the original Challenger T/A model created to compete in drag races in 1971 and they feature unique T/A badging and a couple extra special details.

2018 Performance Models

The 2018 Challenger lineup is more powerful than ever and it includes three different SRT performance engines, and two all-new Challenger performance models, which brings the entire Challenger performance lineup to a total of seven trims!

All of the Challenger trims that are equipped with a performance engine also have some high performance equipment. The performance equipment includes high-performance Brembo brakes, improved tires and wheels and SRT Performance Pages, which provides drivers with important car information as well as track times and driving performance.

6.4-liter HEMI V8 Engine

Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack x Dodge Challenger 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker x Dodge Challenger T/A 392 x Dodge Challenger SRT 392

The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine was reintroduced to the Challenger lineup in 2011. 6.4 liters is the equivalent measurement of 392 cubic inches, and that is why many of the Challenger models that are equipped with the 6.4L engine have “392” in the trim name. The 6.4L engine produces 485 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, and it gives Challenger models a 0-60 mph acceleration time in the low four-second range. Challenger trims equipped with the 6.4L engine come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, but there is an option of the 8-speed automatic transmission.

Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 Engine

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat x Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody

Introduced in 2015 is the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine, which produces 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Until the 2018 model year, the SRT Hellcat engine was only available on one Challenger trim, the Challenger SRT Hellcat, but a second trim, the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody, joined the lineup in 2018. The new widebody model features 3.5-inch wider fender flares, which provides more room for wider tires, and that means the vehicle has more grip on the road and can accelerate faster. The Challenger SRT Hellcat accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and completes a quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds, and the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds and completes a quarter-mile in 10.9 seconds.

Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V8 Engine

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Introduced for the 2018 model year is the all-new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and its all-new supercharged 6.2L HEMI Demon V8 engine, which produces up to 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. Though the Demon engine sounds similar to the SRT Hellcat model, it is actually quite different and significantly more powerful. Some of the engine features that make it possible for the SRT Demon to produce so much power include the Air Grabber, which is largest functional hood scoop of any production car, the TransBrake and the SRT Power Chiller.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon accelerates from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds and completes a quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds, making it the most powerful and the fastest factory production car in the world.

Want to Start Racing? We Have Some Pointers for Beginners


If you are finally ready to purchase the muscle car of your dreams, like a Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger or Chevy Camaro, or start racing the muscle car you already own, there’s some questions you probably have, so we’re here to help answer them.

How do I find out about races?

Of course you can always use the internet to find about events and local race tracks, but if you are ready to start racing your vehicle, you are definitely going to want a group of people to talk with about mods, tracks, races and meets, and just learn more about your local race community, so joining a local group, whether that’s a local group of racers or a local group of people that all have the same type of car (there are a lot of groups dedicated to certain car models), is probably one of the best ways to start learning about your new hobby.

I joined a group, now what?

Go observe races and see what it is really like. See what other cars look like and how other people perform. Drag racing is more than just going to the track and driving in a straight line. Go to the track and observe the amount of time and energy it takes to make a car perform at an optimal level on the track. Most tracks have Test & Tune days/nights where your everyday driver can test what their car can do in the 1/4 or 1/8th mile depending on the track. These T&T sessions are usually posted on the tracks website or Facebook page.


Practice is key to being good at anything, and it’s definitely key to becoming a good racer, but DO NOT practice anywhere except the track. Do not practice on the road, you could hurt yourself and others and you also run the risk of getting tickets and even losing your license. Only practice on a track. If you are serious about racing and being good at it, you should really consider taking a couple driving classes where professionals can teach you a variety of new techniques and help you understand things to recognize and feel when you are behind the wheel.


After you have met some people, watched some races and even practiced going at high speeds, then you are finally ready to start investing some money into making your car faster. It’s good to wait to modify your vehicle until you have actually experienced how it handles on the track, and it’s also important to hear about other people’s experiences with their car, maybe they modified something that you thought you wanted it, but they didn’t see great results. Also, modifications can get really expensive fast. You typically can’t modify one thing without modifying something else, so it is important to price things out before you get started. You don’t want to get lightweight wheels before you can get the best tires for them. You don’t want to buy bigger wheels only to realize you don’t have the money to expand your wheel wells enough for them to fit. Don’t rush into things because that can make your project a lot more expensive and take a lot longer.

Finally, don’t forget that when you take drastic measures to add power to your vehicle, you’re also going to need to increase your vehicle’s braking power. While speed is the goal, stopping is what makes it possible for you to try and reach that goal over and over again.

Do you race? Do you want a car you can race? Miami Lakes Automall has the Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, and the Chevy Camaro, and all of those vehicles are built for the track. If you want to get started, come by Miami Lakes Automall, we can either help you find a new car or find the parts you want to modify your vehicle.

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Dodge Challenger History

History Review of the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Dodge Challenger History

Over 50 years ago, the first Dodge Challenger was built in 1958, known as the Dodge Silver Challenger, to rival the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. Following that was the Dodge Charger, produced to introduce the new 426 HEMI engine from Dodge. Today, both vehicles are still going strong thanks to constant innovation like the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, or simply the performance and control a Dodge vehicle delivers.

Dodge Charger

The first of muscle cars to come from the Dodge automaker was actually a sedan that soon transformed into a bit of sports car with pony car power. When the Charger was first introduced as a concept in 1946, the national public didn’t care too much for it, and the concept was shelved until 20 years later. The first-generation Dodge Charger was produced in 1966, only six years after the first generation Challenger.

Based off of the Dodge Coronet, the first-generation Dodge Charger was designed to be a high-speed street racer with a fastback roof design and full-width tail lamps. Although based off of the Coronet, early Dodge Chargers could easily be mistaken for a Dodge Challenger given that early Dodge Chargers also came with a two-door setup. In its seventh generation today, the Charger resurrected the aerodynamic look of its second generation and consisted of only three trims – the SE, R/T, and R/T AWD, all powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6.

Nowadays, the 2018 Dodge Charger has nine trims to its name, two of which come with an all-wheel drivetrain, two more are a blast from the past, and then we have the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, the sedan version of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The most powerful, of course, is the SRT Hellcat, powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine, capable of generating 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque with a top speed of 204 mph for the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.

No Production Car Has Ever Been Built Like the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

When it comes to high performance pony cars, many consumers think of Dodge, Chevrolet, and Ford. The top contenders for the muscle car market are the Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Corvette, and Ford Mustang. Thanks to the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the Dodge name will be holding the gold medal of muscle cars for years to come. Even with their latest incarnations, neither the Mustang nor the Corvette can match the Demon’s racing times, and no other automaker has done what Dodge did to make the SRT Demon a reality.


The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the only vehicle made to be a drag strip racer from the moment it hits the lot. Many cars can be tuned up with aftermarket components and engineering, such as the infamous Chevy Corvette Exorcist, one aftermarket creation designed to take on the Dodge Challenger Demon. The Dodge SRT Demon is made to be the end all muscle car with a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V8 engine that can generate up to 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque.

Those numbers aren’t even the standard. The only way consumers can achieve that kind of output is by making use of the parts and accessories found in the Dodge Demon Crate. Does that still count as factory produced? Maybe there’s a little controversy there, but when it comes to racing times, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon speaks for itself, able to accelerate from 0-60 mph and finish a quarter mile faster than the big names in the muscle car market, including the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder.

Miami Lakes Automall SRT Bondurant Racing School Demon

Bondurant Racing School Now Open to the Dodge SRT Demon

Miami Lakes Automall SRT Bondurant Racing School Demon

Remember back when we discussed the Bondurant Racing School? It’s the driving school that partnered up with Dodge/SRT to deliver the education and skills necessary to not only handle the power of Dodge muscle cars and SRT vehicles, but also gives them a chance to do a little drag racing. Well now that the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is making the rounds and orders are being delivered, Bondurant has opened a new program designed specifically for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Strap into your racing harness, because you’re going to need it when this beast goes from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds.

How to Get into the SRT/Bondurant Racing School

Is your adrenaline pumping already? Settle down, cowboy. There’s a few requirements before one can get behind the wheel of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. All automotive enthusiasts that wish to participate and attend classes at the Bondurant Racing School need to be of 18 years old or more to be eligible. Second, only drivers can attend the school, it’s not a place to socialize and take pictures.

There’s a third pseudo-requirement if wanting to take classes for free. If having purchased or leased a US-market SRT vehicle with a VIN from 2015 – 2018 (or the present) after April 1, 2015 will immediately have the fee for the classes waived. Meaning the cost of the classes are included in the vehicle, but owners or lessees of an SRT vehicle produced after 2015 only have a year to redeem the free day at school. Otherwise, they, and those who have not purchased or leased an SRT vehicle, will need to pay the standard price of admission – $699.
