Dodge dissatisfied further than a many old- timekeepers when it introduced a Charger hydrofoil in the 2006 model time. The Charger emblem had been applied to a rakehell two- door muscle auto 40 times before. But when Dodge added an voluntary Hemi V-8, and also advanced- performance duplications from the SRT subbrand, the sticklers moved on to embrace the ultramodern Charger. SRT’s treatment reached a new high in the 2015 model time with the Charger Hellcat, featuring a 707-hp, supercharged Hemi V-8 and an aluminum hood with NACA tubes and binary- air extractors. The Charger Hellcat also comes with two crucial fobs a black valet fob that limits revs to 4000 rpm and disallows turning off the traction and stability controls, and a red fob that places no limits on the driving fun.
What is New for 2017?
The 2017 Charger Hellcat comes with a new standard 20- inch wheel design five-spoke featherlight aluminum bus finished by low- buff black. There are also new surface and interior SRT Hellcat colophons and a new SRT- totem steering wheel with red LED illumination. New makeup colors for 2017 are Destroyer Gray and Octane Red.

. The Charger SRT 392 comes with a6.4-liter Hemi V-8 that produces a healthy 485 power and 475 pound- bases of necklace. But the king of the hill is the SRT Hellcat with its6.2-liter supercharged V-8 that pumps out a rumbustious 707 power and 650 pound- bases of necklace. The only available transmission is an eight- speed automatic with homemade controls. The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) recorded a 0-60 mph sprint of just3.7 seconds and an 11-alternate quarter- afar time. Its top speed is a manufacturer- claimed 204 mph, making it the fastest product hydrofoil in the world. With sticky Pirelli P-Zero tires on 20 by9.5- inch “ Slingshot” forged-aluminum bus and five drive modes, the Hellcat turns and handles far beyond any Mopar muscle auto from the original Charger’s late-Sixties florescence, although the steering could be tuned for better feedback. But, unexpectedly, the Hellcat’s fairly long wheelbase and soft suspense give it a fairly comfortable lift for a fire-breathing performance auto.

. The Charger SRT Hellcat is a full-size four- door hydrofoil with a120.4- inch wheelbase, so it comes with a decent quantum of interior space. There is indeed enough headroom in the aft seat for two (or, in a pinch, three) grown-ups. Standard outfit includes leather upholstery, hotted and voiced frontal and hinder seats, a heated steering wheel, and binary- zone climate control. The Hellcat is distinguished from other Dishes by its Dark Radar Red gauges with digital plates, light-black trim accentuations, anodized gunmetal makeup, and chrome details. But while leathers and faux suede hint at a decoration cabin, other accoutrements are a bit of a letdown for a vehicle at this price point.
The Auto and Motorist Difference Infotainment and Connectivity
The Charger SRT Hellcat comes with a7.0- inch motorist information display and and an8.4- inch UConnect touchscreen in the center mound. The fourth- generation UConnect infotainment system is new for 2017, with sharper resolution, briskly recycling speed, and pinch-and- swipe features for the voluntary navigation system. It includes Bluetooth Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a six- speaker stereo with satellite radio.
