Chrysler has finally announced the pricing details for the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Carrying a starting price tag of $63,995, including the $1,700 gas guzzler tax, the Charger SRT Hellcat will go on sale later this year.
“The Dodge Charger is a performance car that carves its own niche and cuts straight through the segments and perceptions of what a full-size sedan can or should be,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO – Dodge and SRT. “With the new 2015 Charger, we’re pushing the boundaries of what a full-size sedan can or should be even further. We’ve seriously modernized the look and feel and added a standard eight-speed transmission across the lineup. The Charger is now tighter, leaner and more athletic, without sacrificing the proportions, performance, driving dynamics, attitude and price that attracted customers in the first place.”
The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is powered by a 6.2 liter supercharged HEMI V8 engine making 707-hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. That allows for a 0 to 60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 204 mph. It also has a NHRA-certified 11.0-second quarter-mile time.
The Charger Hellcat builds on the equipment from the Charger SRT 392 and adds two key fobs – red and black – to control engine output; SRT Performance Pages with boost gauge, unique SRT flat-bottom three-spoke steering wheel finished with Gunmetal accents; Dark Spun aluminum accents, 7-inch DID with 200 mph speedometer, aluminum performance hood with NACA duct and dual air extractors, Slingshot forged-aluminum wheels with Matte Black or Brass Monkey/Dark Bronze finish; and Hellcat fender badges.
