2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

The 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is a true force to be reckoned with – a high-performance muscle car in every sense of the phrase. Its exclusive supercharged Hemi SRT Hellcat V8 provides explosive power straight off the line. Whenever you crave a little extra attention, simply sound the Hellcat’s delicious exhaust note. Inside, the Challenger SRT Hellcat bests competitors with expansive passenger accommodations and – surprise! – a comfortable ride.

If you know anything about the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, it’s that, under the hood, its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine amps up the party with 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. Other muscle cars of this caliber – think the Shelby GT350 Mustang and Camaro ZL1 – simply can’t compete with that kind of output. It’s the premium choice for tire-burning speed. The SRT Hellcat also comes with an exclusive, sport-tuned suspension for amplified handling on and off the racetrack. The powertrain’s lightning-quick response time is exactly what every driving enthusiast craves, whether you’re stuck behind a slow-moving semi or all-in at the local drag spot.

It might be tuned for all-out athleticism, but the SRT Hellcat still demonstrates excellent manners in day-to-day driving. Here, again, it easily surpasses the competition. Other muscle cars – being tuned for maximum precision and a sporty ride – can feel firm over the pavement, which is normally something that just comes with high-performance territory. The SRT Hellcat, however, treats a cabin full of passengers to a smooth, quiet ride.

As if it were bent on outdoing competitors in every way, the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat also supplies premium passenger accommodations. Both rows are roomy. The rear seats are especially appealing, because other cars in this segment tend to treat them as an afterthought. Instead, the SRT Hellcat provides roomy digs for up to five adult-size passengers. Naturally, the SRT Hellcat is also a luxurious beast. The cabin’s Nappa-leather-and-suede upholstery even offer your choice of black or black with ruby red trim. If you guessed that the trunk’s 16.2 cubic feet of cargo space would easily outdo the competition, you’re not only right – you’re ready to haul a store of weekend luggage, golf clubs, and tennis gear to your favorite getaway spot.
