2018 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

A Look Back At the Recent History of the Dodge Challenger

2018 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

The Dodge brand has grown in popularity and offered seemingly better and better muscle car options for customers. The truth is Dodge really has upped the ante for vehicles in terms of production and horsepower, among other qualities its customers embrace. Looking back at just the last half-decade we can see just how improved the Dodge muscle lineup has grown. When the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was introduced, it was a landmark effort. The first SRT Hellcat would offer 707 horsepower and hit a remarkable 11.2-second quarter-mile effort. Dodge would surpass this total with more recent efforts in the following years. Let’s take a look at where the Dodge brand has grown and exceeded previous efforts with unmatched gusto. 

Looking Back At the 2015 Dodge Challenger

The first SRT Hellcat would offer 707 horsepower and hit a remarkable 11.2-second quarter-mile effort. Dodge would surpass this total with more recent efforts in the following years. Let’s take a look at where the Dodge brand has grown and exceeded previous efforts with unmatched gusto. 

Former President and CEO of Dodge and SRT Brands, Tim Kuniskis, remarked when the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat debuted that Dodge was “reaching deep into our history and bringing back the notion from the muscle car ear of the street and strip dual-purpose cars”. This was just the first effort to embark on a path that includes new muscle cars for new customers to fall for the love of racing and the muscle Dodge provides. The goal for Dodge was to make a muscle car serve two purposes and this would further be realized when the following year Dodge offered the 2016 Challenger. 

Dodge Improved Challenger In New Ways For 2016 and 2017

Dodge had redesigned the Challenger the year prior, but when the 2016 model year came out it offered the most muscle ever offered in a production vehicle. The supercharged 6.2-Liter HEMI SRT V8 engine offered 650 ft-lb of torque and hit a top speed of 199 mph. While this would see to be impressive, as the rival brand Chevrolet and its Camaro only hit 455 horsepower and the Challenger was over 700 horsepower, the 2017 model year was even better. The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT was the first all-wheel-drive muscle car and offered launch control to help ensure an easier start on drag strips. The following model year offered something we’re still talking about to this day.

The Most Impressive Dodge Challenger Models Yet

The 2018 model year for the Dodge brand offered the rare and exclusive 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. This was the fastest production muscle car and it wasn’t topped by any vehicle since, with the exception of the new 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. The 2018 Dodge Challenger offered the SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Widebody, but the star vehicle was the SRT Demon. With high-octane fuel, the output for the engine was 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. The Dodge brand wound up creating cousins of the SRT Demon in the following years with muscle cars are just as exclusive as the SRT Demon. Look no further than the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

More Demon Parts For Customers To Enjoy

Dodge wound up earning lots of attention when parts of the SRT Demon found its way into both the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and this year’s 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. While the SRT Hellcat Redeye offered “only” 797 horsepower, the SRT Super Stock hit over 800 horsepower and became only the second Dodge vehicle to offer customers such unique strength and power. In fact, the SRT Super Stock is perhaps the most impressive Challenger ever made. So, what does Dodge have in store for buyers in the coming years? We can expect only remarkable results and some of the world’s finest engineering for the company responsible for putting muscle cars back on the map in the past decade.

Which High-End Dodge Challenger Trim Should A Driver Choose?

The landscape of Dodge muscle cars runs deep and offers more choices than most would suspect. The 2020 Dodge Challenger offers a multitude of packages for customers to decide on. For those that want to spend extra money to get all the perks afforded with some of the higher trims, a smart choice would be the Scat Pack trim or Hellcat trim. What would be the major differences between the R/T Scat Pack and the SRT Hellcat? Allow us to share some news of the upcoming features and standard options when it comes to the 2020 Dodge Challenger.

Breaking Down the 2020 SRT Hellcat

The highest trim for the Challenger is found in the SRT Hellcat Redeye, however, this is a vehicle that while it remains the fastest production muscle car made by Dodge, few can handle its immense power. For those willing to consider the high-end SRT Hellcat Redeye, we recommend reading more about it. However, let’s get back to two vehicles that are closer in price and performance. The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat offers an impressive 6.2-Liter supercharged engine with an impressive 717 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The power of the Challenger is felt by drivers and passengers alike. Not to mention, the high-end technology being added to the Challenger with the addition of the Uconnect 5 system

In-Depth Look Into the R/T Scat Pack

The 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack has the best-in-class horsepower for any vehicle under $40,00. The Scat Pack offers high-octane premium performance that has built a following of Dodge muscle car enthusiasts around the world. Starting with its hunky HEMI V8 engine that produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque and offers a quarter-time of 11.70 seconds at a top speed of 115 mph. The price of the R/T Scat Pack starts at $39,995 MSRP and is available for the Widebody option. The R/T Scat Pack Widebody is considered another trim, just as the SRT Hellcat Widebody. For those that expect to take their Dodge muscle car for drag racing on a course, we can see the intrigue to add the Widebody version for either trim. The Widebody adds greater grip due to its wider tires, but we will focus on the non-Widebody entries for this article. Don’t forget, Dodge added the R/T Scat Pack as one of the options to gain the Daytona Special Edition earlier this year. 

Why Opt For A Challenger?

The best part of driving any Dodge Challenger is feeling the extremely fast jump the vehicle provides from 0-60 and how smooth the vehicle rides. Dodge has earned many drivers over the competition in recent years, surpassing the Chevrolet Camaro in 2019 thanks to its many perks, trim options, and excitement offered for each owner. We love the sound of a new Dodge Challenger driving by and we’re sure the sound of owning one will sound great to many of our readers.

Interested In Horsepower? We’ve Got You Covered

We enjoy riding in Dodge vehicles just as much as our customers. At Miami Lakes Automall, part of the fun of selling and leasing vehicles is getting to see all the ins and outs of these remarkable Dodge muscle cars. What are muscle cars known for? Delivering top-notch power and being fast. So how does a muscle car or any vehicle engine supply horsepower when driving and which current Dodge vehicle offers the most horsepower? Let’s begin explaining how horsepower works.

Brief History of Horsepower Creation

The term horsepower was originally coined back in 1702 as a way to measure the amount of movement over time. One horsepower equals 550 pounds across one foot in one second of time. The actual notes regarded by Thomas Savery in 1702 help explain how the measurements back then were made when comparing a steam engine to the production of horses. Savery wound up noting that a horse could turn a mill wheel 144 times in an hour, then he measured the length of the wheel (what the horse was moving) and came up with a formula to figure out “horsepower”.

“(Steam) engine will raise as much water as two horses, working together at one time in such a work, can do, and for which there must be constantly kept ten or twenty horses to constantly maintained and kept for doing such a work.” -Thomas Savery, Scottish Engineer

Horsepower In the Automotive Industry

Horsepower when used with engines, this work is frictionless with regards to how gas energy works. A device called an engine indicator tracks the pressures from within the cylinders to note horsepower. There are actually a few ways to test the number of ways how power and torque can be measured from a vehicle. Torque is a moving force that is made by the engine’s crankshaft. The more torque created by the engine, the greater the engine’s ability to perform work is. Power is the final definition to go over, which is how fast work happens. James Watt came up with one horsepower being the power required to lift 33,000 pounds and move one foot per minute. So keeping this in mind, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye produces 797 horsepower (the highest horsepower available today for Dodge customers) at 6000 RPM.  

Dodge Keeps Pushing the Horsepower Limit

Dodge has raised the level of the horsepower in their vehicles over the years, just going back to the 2010 Dodge Challenger has a maximum horsepower rating of 425 horsepower, today its 797 horsepower. There are ways to increase horsepower in a vehicle, including adding a cold air intake or adding nitrous oxide (if you want to be a Fast and Furious racer). Have more questions about horsepower? Reach out to us to find out about the latest Dodge muscle car and we can talk some real horsepower!

Dodge Challenger Reigns Supreme In 2019

The competition among muscle cars has been fierce for the third quarter of 2019. The winner is the Dodge Challenger, which has come out on top ahead of long-standing rivals Chevrolet and Ford. Moving into first-place in front of both the latest Ford Mustang for the Chevy Camaro is an achievement for the Dodge brand. No other muscle car could match the sales of the premier Dodge muscle car, the high-performance Challenger. The Challenger saw a massive volume sold, hitting their biggest quarter ever. Dodge and parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles are happy to see their Challenger moving 18,031 units sold versus 16,823 Ford Mustang sold and 12,275 sold for the Chevy Camaro. 

How Did Dodge Pull So Far Ahead of the Rest?

Conventional wisdom would say that the Ford Mustang should have sold more volume than they did. They didn’t. Many would have guessed the Camaro should have done better, they didn’t fare any better, either. What could explain how Dodge did as well? The answer is found in all the perks Dodge offers that no other brand can match. No other vehicle saw a positive gain in this quarter. The Dodge Challenger saw their sales rise 21 percent over this time last year. Mustang fell down by 12.3 percent and Chevy saw the Camaro go down by 15 percent. Despite having an older platform, the Dodge Challenger keeps rolling against the competition. 

Maybe It’s the Muscle?

Ford doesn’t offer a muscle car that can match the aggressive horsepower offered in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. The upcoming Ford Shelby GT500 will have 37 less horsepower than the aforementioned Hellcat Redeye, which nearly hits 800 horsepower at an outstanding 797 horsepower. Just below that threshold is the SRT Hellcat that offers 707 horsepower. The Camaro, currently in the 6th generation, offers an engine that hits 650 horsepower by comparison. Dodge has learned their vehicles are among the most popular among drivers and their customer base is also younger than the competition’s as well. 

Perhaps the Success Is Due To Versatility 

Dodge won this quarter and looks to build on this success. More reasons that point out how this happened could be due to the fact that Dodge has plenty of trims and also offers many more special editions and unique packages. With so many different levels of the Challenger to drive off with, the Dodge brand helps customers take home the exact muscle car and perks they want. Stop by and pay us a visit at Miami Lakes Automall for all things automotive. Want to experience what it’s like behind the wheel of a muscle car? Allow us to make it happen at Miami Lakes Automall.

Dodge Muscle Owners Are Youngest In Muscle Car Segment

2019 Dodge Challenger Miami Lakes Automall

The landscape of muscle cars attracts many drivers from every age group. However, recent insight has highlighted buyers of various muscle car brands. Speaking candidly about the average age of the Dodge muscle cars, owners, Kevin Hellman, Dodge Challenger brand manager, had some new information. Curious to learn more about the future of the Challenger and what the “the youngest buyer in the segment” is? 

Dodge Has Youngest Age of Muscle Car Customers

According to Hellman, the youngest age group between all major muscle car companies is not as youthful as some would guess at 51 years young.  The rival Ford Mustang has an average buyer age of 55 years old, and the Chevrolet Camaro has an average customer age at 53 years old. With people living longer in more recent generations, of course, the age of drivers on the road has increased. Since 2000, the number of car owners over 55 years old has gone up 15 percent. The rush of driving a muscle car is not lost with time, especially since the Dodge muscle cars have become better.

If It’s Not Broke, It Doesn’t Need to Be Fixed

Speaking of age, the Dodge Challenger and Charger have aged gracefully despite not having a massive overhaul in over a decade for each car.  The Dodge Challenger is currently the second-best-selling muscle car in the United States. Dodge has continued to pull away from the Chevrolet Camaro boasting over 4,000 more units sold through just over two-quarters worth of sales. Through July 2019, Dodge has moved 28,668 Challenger vehicles while the Camaro sold 24,516 vehicles. The appeal of the Dodge Challenger remains, and Dodge will continue pushing their prized muscle car.  Head of design for Dodge, Chrysler, and SRT, Mark Trostle, remarked the design of the Challenger will not change any time soon. The change to the appearance won’t happen despite the latest safety regulations and fuel economy standards, making it made it harder to keep the current design. Dodge has found creative ways to improve fuel economy over the years and enhance the vehicle to be even faster and more powerful. 

Find All-Ranges of Power With Dodge

Looking to drive a muscle car from Dodge? Dodge has a wide variety of trims with its Dodge Challenger. From the base Challenger trim, the SXT gives drivers a 3.6-Liter V6 engine that delivers 305 horsepower and the highest-trim, the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye trim hits a remarkable 797 horsepower.

2019 Dodge Challenger Miami Lakes

Dodge Challenger Outselling Chevy Camaro For the First Time

2019 Dodge Challenger Miami Lakes

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has started 2019 with great success against their closest rival, Chevrolet, with victory in their Dodge and Ram brand. The first quarter sales results have shown FCA’s Ram 1500 pickup, and Dodge Challenger outsold the Chevrolet Silverado pickup and Chevrolet Camaro. 2019 hasn’t just been a good year in terms of sales, it’s been a record year as Dodge notched their highest sales totals since 2008. The Dodge Challenger has now outsold the Chevy Camaro for the first time ever. So, what explains this sudden leap of popularity? We know most of it is based on the continued high-performance offered top customers, stronger and faster choices and the fantastic job by FCA and Dodge to keep improving.

The Dodge Brand Never Settles

The last several years, Dodge has introduced some of the fastest muscle cars in the history of the brand. First with the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the Hellcat Widebody, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and the most recent SRT (street racing technology) vehicle, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Each of these vehicles has propelled the brand further ahead and supplied customers with over 700 horsepower in each vehicle, pushing the limits every year with faster final products. To anyone who has felt the rush of the massive V8 engines inside the latest Dodge Challenger, they would know why Dodge has continued to gain buyers.

The 2018 total sales show the Challenger exceeded the greatest-selling year the Challenger ever set in 2015 (66,716 sold versus 66,365 vehicles in 2015). Both of those numbers were higher than the Chevrolet Camaro’s total sales of 50,963 vehicles sold in 2018. The Dodge Challenger was the only muscle car on the market to receive a year-over-year gain, Motor1.com reported. What will 2019 bring about for the Dodge Challenger?

2019 Is Another Banner Year for Dodge

The reports have come in for the first quarter, showing that 2019 might be even better than in 2018. Through three months, Kelley Blue Book reports that the Dodge Challenger sold 13,431 vehicles ahead of Chevrolet’s Camaro with 12,083 vehicles sold. The Dodge Challenger hasn’t had a massive overhaul in terms of its frame and greater design in 11 years, but rather seen updates through the interior and under-the-hood. The future of Dodge will most likely include even faster and more powerful vehicles, but only time will tell.

We do know there will an electric future for the Dodge brand. Could Dodge unseat the Ford Mustang in the future for the number one spot? The Chevrolet Camaro was ahead for years, but today the Dodge Challenger is more popular and perhaps this momentum will continue for Dodge to overtake Ford at some point in the next decade. We’ll see, but for those looking to drive the latest Dodge SRT vehicles, coming to Miami Lakes Automall is the right choice.

The Electric Future of Dodge Muscle

Dodge knows the world is changing little by little and the future of their muscle cars is set to change, too. The next change to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will come with their Dodge brand’s view on electric power. Specifically, Dodge is aiming to change the way their muscle cars are powered. Mike Manley, CEO of FCA, has an internal determination to reshape their Dodge Challenger and Charger, different than what they had showcased before. What exactly will that look like? The man to ask would be the Manley himself. He had this to say in regards to the future of Dodge and their outlook regarding their muscle cars going forward.

“What it isn’t going to be is a V8 supercharged, 700-horsepower engine.  The reality is those platforms and the technology we use does need to move on. What’s important is what does the concept of American muscle look like in 2024? Does American muscle look like a big V8, supercharged, 700-horsepower, fire-breathing machine, or really is it for Dodge that combination of that incredible power-to-weight ratio, but now because new technology’s going to drive a load of weight out, we can think about the powertrains in a different way and we can use electrification to really supplement those vehicles going forward?” Manley admitted.

Electric Power Forges Ahead

FCA’s Dodge brand muscle cars aim to increase their thunder with a shot of electric power going forward. Just last year, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye was released with its 797 horsepower supercharged V8 engine that helps it go from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. What that unique vehicle doesn’t have is any additional power by way of electric help to raise its acceleration. Imagine how much faster Dodge could make their vehicles with that influence. After all, the Tesla Model S reaches 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds, so adding some electric power might be hugely beneficial. Adding some electric energy could help the SRT Hellcat Redeye or muscle cars like it, as the Redeye doesn’t have the best highway mpg with its 22 mpg rating.

Where The Dodge Muscle Car Is Headed

The current body of the Dodge Charger was introduced 2006 and the Challenger SRT version first began in 2009. Though they have come to define the reintroduction of what muscle cars are known today; loud, boisterous, powerful, wide, large tires and strong. There are new changes coming that will improve their design under the hood and overall. What exactly it will it become is yet to be seen, but with clarity from CEO Mike Manley, we can expect the future to be quite electric.

2019 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

Dodge Challenger Has Its Best Year Ever In 2018

2019 Dodge Miami Lakes Automall

The latest craze in the automotive industry has been a change in the landscape of popularity. More evidence has grown and shown that cars are just not as popular as before. Someone tell Dodge that. The latest evidence of this is the Dodge Challenger raised its sales in 2018. With 66,716 vehicles sold was up three percent and a record for the Dodge Challenger. Of course, the Dodge brand has been able to create fast, luxurious and fun to drive SUVs as well and they were their biggest hit in 2018 for Dodge. Let’s share all the fantastic perks customers can find in the 2019 Dodge vehicle lineup and how well they did over the course of 2018.

Dodge Has Great Variety In The SUV Market

Truth be told, Dodge had their biggest sales with their Dodge Grand Caravan. The Dodge Grand Caravan sold 151,927 vehicles in 2018, followed in popularity by the Dodge Journey and Dodge Durango, selling 94,096 and 65,947 vehicles respectively. Crossovers and SUVs accounted for 47.1% of new-vehicle registrations in the third quarter of 2018, up four percent the same quarter in 2017.

Their SUV catalog is popular and commands a presence with the mid-size SUV 2019 Dodge Caravan allowing for drivers to embrace its strength of up to 3,600 pounds of towing capacity and respectable 25 highway mpg. One trait that has attracted buyers is the low starting price of the base model, SE, at only $26,650 MSRP (plus destination fee).  

The slightly smaller Dodge Journey also carries the same highway MPG, while the largest SUV among the Dodge vehicles, the Durango, provides owners with 26 highway MPG and the highest towing capacity at an available 8,700 pounds thanks to the strong SRT 6.2-Liter V8 engine. The 2019 Dodge Durango begins at $29,995 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the base SXT model. The 2019 Dodge Journey, the smallest SUV of the Dodge lineup begins at $23,495 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the base model, SE trim.

How Dodge Muscle Cars Faired In 2018

Sedans accounted for 23.8% of new-vehicle registrations in the third quarter, down from 27% in 2017. In the third quarter of 2014, just four years prior, sedans accounted for 35.1% of registrations.The Dodge Charger, their flagship muscle car and also a sedan, sold 80,226 vehicles.The 2019 Dodge Charger boasts up to 30 highway MPG and sustains its popularity thanks to its wonderful high-performance drive that customers enjoy, quality and embedded power in the American fabric of great muscle cars. The 2019 Dodge Challenger, which is popular, but not as popular as the Charger, still increased in sales over 2017 and exceeded expectations by many in the industry thanks to the impressive top-tier models selling well. In fact, the Dodge Challenger was the only muscle car of the major muscle car brands (including the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro) to post year-over-year growth.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and other Hellcat models were quite stunning in terms of high-performance abilities on the road, but also for their performance in terms of sales. Drivers must have fallen for the remarkable speed provided by the powertrain that cranks out 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will continue to make these fine muscle vehicles into the future. A major refresh will mean at least around five more years of producing these popular muscle cars. We can’t blame them!

Dodge Enjoys Remarkable 2018 With Awards and All-New Vehicles

Photo credit: Dodge

There have been a lot of great moments in 2018 for the Dodge brand, including earning new awards and witnessing continued sales success. Dodge took home recognition from J.D. Power for the Highest Resale Value Midsize Sporty Car segment for the Dodge Challenger. The Dodge Charger earned the Highest Resale Value Large Car segment award. J.D. Power has been assisting customers to make better-informed decisions since 1968. Today in 2018, exactly 244 vehicle models were evaluated, comprising a sample of 650,000 completed transactions. The 2019 Dodge Durango was also awarded by Strategic Vision this year and improved upon from the previous year.

Remarkable Muscle Offered By Dodge

A breakthrough vehicle for the masses came with the latest high-end Dodge Challenger, the all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. The SRT Hellcat Redeye is a lighting fast, hardy, and a responsive muscle car – built with a 797 horsepower engine. The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was introduced earlier this year with increased horsepower yet again by achieving 717 horsepower, 10 more horsepower than the previous year. Both Hellcat models gain a distinguished dual-snorkel hood that pays tribute to the popular Dodge muscle cars, including the 1970 Dart Swinger and 1971 Demon.

Eight different models make up the reconfigured Challenger lineup for 2019 – including the SXT, SXT AWD, GT, GT AWD, R/T, R/ T Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, and all-new SRT Hellcat Redeye. Various option packages extend all the upgrades, unique heritage cues and additional performance that Dodge//SRT consumers crave. The Challenger offers a broad range of engine options, including the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 on SXT, SXT AWD, GT, and GT AWD models, the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 in the R/T models, the naturally aspirated 392 HEMI V8 on R/T Scat Pack models, the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 on the SRT Hellcat and the all-new SRT Hellcat Redeye. There’s no good reason muscle car fans would skip the chance to drive this current line up of the 2019 Dodge Challenger.

Not Just Muscle Cars, The Durango Proves Impressive Value and Power

The newest Dodge Durango has never looked better with a class-leading maximum towing capability of 8,700 pounds and class-leading driving range. Fuel Saver Technology within its HEMI engines granting owners solid fuel economy with a 26 highway MPG rating with the rear-wheel-drive option. Altogether, the 2019 Durango is more rugged, powerful and comfortable inside than ever before. Owners have the option of three powertrain choices and provides consumers across five trims, ranging from the SXT, GT, R/T, Citadel and SRT.

Many styles and choices are available for drivers to choose from with the 2019 Durango, which took an award from Strategic Vision’s Total Quality Impact report.

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Redeye Miami Lakes Automall

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Gets SRT Demon Components

Few vehicles are built like the incredible all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. With a world-class, supercharged 6.2-Liter V8 engine that provides owners with a remarkable 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque, that’s just the start of what makes this vehicle so impressive. Of course, part of the reason the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is so remarkable is due to many of the same components built for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. While the Dodge SRT Demon was capable of giving owners 840 horsepower when using high octane fuel, the parts that made the Demon such a powerhouse are now found in the newest SRT (Street Racing Technology) Dodge Challenger.

Last year, the stunning SRT Demon’s stock only included a small number, 3,330 vehicles, to be exact. Of course, the all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is not limited by a restrained run. Thankfully, there’s a lot of people that will be able to comfortably find and drive the all-new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.  

Meet the Newest Dodge Challenger, the SRT Hellcat Redeye  

The SRT Redeye is the highest trim available from the Hellcat, but that trim uses a 2.4-Liter supercharger for the Demon’s 2.7-Liter unit, and it hits 14.5 psi of boost—versus the 11.6 psi of the standard Hellcat — and the Demon as well. The standard Hellcat’s 6,200 rpm redline is raised to equal the Demon’s 6,500 rpm redline, and two dual-stage fuel pumps from the Demon help maintain the Hellcat Redeye’s appetite for premium 93 octane. This is part of what customers should expect from one of the world’s best high-performance muscle cars.

The SRT Demon also provided many firsts for a muscle car and some of those remarkable parts carried over to the new 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye including a 41-spline half shafts (yields a 20 percent improvement in torque capacity) and high-strength steel prop shafts, netting a 15 percent gain in torque capacity. What helps thrust the Dodge Demon to begin quickly from the line is also available with the SRT Hellcat Redeye; Launch Control, Launch Assist, Line Lock, and Torque Reserve. There’s also the Power Chiller and After-Run Chiller to help cool things down at the drag strip.

The Hellcat Redeye arrives standard with a high stall torque converter, helping add 18 percent extra torque and 11 percent quicker stall speed. The Redeye’s 2.62:1 final drive ratio is similar to the Demon’s 3.09:1 final drive ratio. The pricing variance is noteworthy as the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye is priced at $71,350 MSRP (plus destination fee), which is far less than the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon’s original $86,090 sticker price. Not a bad thing to have just about the same vehicle for a vastly discounted amount. (Thanks Dodge and FCA!)

Variations Between Both Vehicles

While the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is able to blow away most of the competition it will ever face for a quarter-mile time (just 10.8 seconds) While the Demon claimed a striking 9.65-second quarter-mile time, the Redeye is stunning with a mark of 131 mph in the same span, barely 9 mph slower than the SRT Demon.

There’s a few other differences between the Hellcat Redeye and the SRT Demon? The 18-inch Demon wheels covered in 315/40 drag radials have not been continued to the SRT Hellcat Redeye, but rather replaced with two sets of sporty 20-inch wheels including 305/35 tires. The distinguished weight-shifting suspension mode is not present on the Hellcat Redeye. The smaller, thinner 14.2-inch front brakes for track duty aren’t continued as the Hellcat Redeye carries 15.4-inch stoppers from Brembo up front. These changes aren’t enough to persuade anyone from not getting the Hellcat Redeye, but are worth noting. Any customer that has had their eyes on the latest 2019 Dodge Challenger line-up will know there’s nothing quite like the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye available today.
