3 Reasons why the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is Amazing
Fast, powerful and a true muscle car, the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is one of the year’s hottest autos. Dodge didn’t spare any expense with the Hellcat, and its immense power comes from a 707 horsepower engine that has a 650 lb.-ft of torque.
Let’s take a look at 3 reasons why the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is amazing.
1. True Power at Your Fingertips
This isn’t a Honda Civic. The Hellcat is meant to be powerful. First, the 707 horsepower engine with 650 lb.-ft of torque is impressive by all standards. When you dig deeper into the power of this engine, you’ll find that:
- The top track speed is 199 mph.
- Drivers reach 0 – 60 in the low 3-second range.
- From a full stop, drivers can go a quarter mile in 10.8 seconds.
Powered by a 6.2-liter HEMI engine, the Hellcat is in a class of its own. Engine heat can be a concern, but Dodge developed an engine cooling system that allows for maximum power and performance. Even in stop-and-go settings, the vehicle is able to maintain maximum thermal efficiency, allowing for fast, steady performance normally only seen on the race track.
Even with all of this power, the engine sustains 13 mpg with city driving and 22 mpg on the highway.
2. Stunning Interior Design
Luxurious doesn’t begin to explain how well this vehicle is designed. The interior is stunning with features that are not seen in most vehicles – including performance pages.
The most powerful V8 in Dodge’s history, drivers are able to customize the way their vehicle is driven. First, the seats are full leather and designed to hold the driver tight no matter how sharp a turn is when driving.
The dashboard is illuminated with a red-colored back-lit panel. Hand controls are present on the steering wheel that allow users to pick up their phone, set cruise control and more.
Finally, the middle dash allows users to control virtually all aspects of their driving experience. Users can view:
- Boost pressure
- Air fuel ratios
- Coolant temp
- Intake air temp
Users can even customize their transmission settings through the dash for a more precise driving experience.
In total, Dodge claims that there are over 100+ customization options that will allow drivers to fully customize their driving experience.
3. Incredibly Safe for a Sports Car
Going fast doesn’t mean you should sacrifice safety. This model keeps safety to the highest of standards. First, there are front and rear head airbags to limit the impact during an accident. Side airbags further help cushion the driver during an accident.
The 4-wheel ABS is powered by ventilated disc brakes for fast, stop on-a-dime performance.
A post-collision safety system is present. A brake drying system reduces long brake times even in the rain, and there is a tire pressure monitoring system to alert the driver of low tires before they hinder performance.
Automatic windshield wipers will initiate when rain touches the windshield and there are dusk sensing headlamps powered by intense Xenon headlamps. Daytime running lights are also present to boost the vehicle’s visibility when driving.
