Like its forefathers, the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat faced a complete face-lifting to get a new frontal and tail fascias and a refined interior. The refreshed Charger embraces a 707-hp HEMI V8 underneath the hood. It is a to-ranging four-sedan on the speed scale, comes with exterior upscale for a menacing appearance. Inside, every component is made of high quality materials, seats offer lounge coziness and décor is a wealth of unrivalled beauty that echoes ingenuity and prowess by its craftsmanship.  

On the exterior, the Hellcat treads on the path of the Challenger SRT Hellcat in terms of style, with unique frontal and back fascia, a new hood and back spoiler depicting a monster machine. Headlights are unaltered, but the grille is brand new. The bumper has been reshaped for a trapezoidal inlet boasting an analogous grille and bigger side intakes. Under the skin, a slitter is incorporated for maximum airflow to the mill and improving on aerodynamics. The 19” lightweight and aluminum polished wheels are covered with Pirelli Zero tires. 

The cabin is also redesigned, now featuring a flat-bottomed and SRT-branded steering wheel to replace the standard one, larger TFT display knobs and Uconnect controls. The multifunctional steering wheel comes with a 360-degrees heat element. The seats which are all new, have been refined for more cushioning, lumbar support and comfy. 

The Charger SRT Hellcat rates as the most potent and fastest sedan and is outfitted with a 6.2-liter HEMI V8 that spews out 707-horsepower and 650 lb-ft of twist to the back wheels, enabling the Charger to give amazing performance figures. From naught, it gallops to 60 mph within 3.7 seconds. The mill is combined to an 8-speed automated transmission.

There are five drive modes offered. The Eco option optimizes fuel efficiency with second-gear starts, pedal map and revised shifting. The Default mode is activated automatically when the engine is started, while the Sport function gives heightened performance. The Custom function enables the driver to customize vehicular performance and the Track mode comes in handy for the Charger Hellcat to give optimum performance. This mode is ideal for sleek and dry surfaces.

Like the Challenger Hellcat, the Charger incorporates twin standard key fobs. The reddish fob is joined to the single key unlocking the 707-hp of the sedan, the black key restricts engine revolutions to 4,000 rpm, cuts down power to 500 horsepower and deactivates the first gear. Launch knob and drive mode controls are deactivated if the ESC is full on.

It dates back to 1966 when the Dodge 426 HEMI mill was released by the automaker; this propelled it to the fore of the ultra-potent and speediest midsize cars of the time. It has been a long lull, almost 50 years for the Charger to be brought to the public limelight with a highly supercharged engine under the hood. The selling point of the Charger is straddled by its unique qualities, powerful than Germanic versions, breakneck pace acceleration and a considerably affordable price. Reviving the Charger with the four-door sedan was fortuitous for Dodge this vantage.
