Dodge Challenger and Charger 2019 have lightweight change and iconic color

dodge challenger

The 2018 Challenger and Charger line will be Dodge’s attraction during the Chicago Show in February in the United States. One of the novelties is the return of the iconic Sublime color – a shade of lime green easily seen from a distance. The reason for the splurge is because she last appeared in the color palette as an option for any version in 1970. She once did two minor appearances in special series, in 2015 for the Challenger and in 2007 in the Charger R / T Daytona. This means that it will be possible to order several versions, such as the Charger Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat and the Challenger Wide body. New Shelby GT500 will have more than 700 hp to fight with Hellcat Shelby GT500 Super Snake 1967 was auctioned for $ 2.2 million.

Challenger’s SRT Hellcat returns to market with its 726 hp extracted from the V8 engine with supercharger. For him and the Charger Hellcat, the hood now features two scoops inspired by the 1970 Swinger Dart. The Challenger GT received the Super Track package that features Performance hood, skirts the front bumper and, for the first time, the V6 3.6 Pentastar engine, usually used only in the entry – and cheaper versions. 5.2 V8 engine gained a larger supercharger of 2.65 liters and a series of improvements to exceed the 700 hp.

The Charger received enhancements to the chassis based on competition items. Now for the Charger Scat Pack and the SRT Hellcat enter as standard start controls with a new button to start and the line lock – which locks the front wheels for burnout.

In the RT / Scat Pack there is also a new front grille with two air intakes and the “Torque Reserve” system, for starters. It shifts the fuel passage toward the cylinders to shorten when closing the bypass valve, while closing the supercharger before a start, reducing stress on the brakes and sparing the tires.

How the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is Made!

The Dodge Challenger is a sporty model and started its manufacturing process in the year of 1970, gained fame by its wide availability of variations of engines and versions of the model to choose. One of the most famous and desired versions was the RT and 426 Hemi V8 which both have V8 engines. After 35 years the Challenger resurfaced in 2008 redesigned and with retro design, but much more crude, nowadays one of the most wanted and fast versions is the Hellcat SRT.

Latest Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be auctioned

And the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon goes out of the loop to get into the story. The last unit of the sports car was shipped the day before yesterday by the FCA assembly line in Brampton, in the State of Ontario, Canada. And it will have a special destiny: it will be auctioned along with the last copy of the Dodge Viper, which was produced last year. The proceeds from the two-car auction will be reverted to the philanthropic United Way. Before being auctioned, the final Demon will receive an exclusive finish, with 18-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in radial pulling tires and red Viper car body painting. The Challenger SRT Demon was born with death announced as its production was limited to one year and 3,300 units. With an 840-hp V8 engine, it was the first racer model homologated to run on the streets.


Dodge Viper

The Dodge Viper, under its very lightweight carbon fiber body, features an 8.4-liter, 645-hp V10 engine, as well as huge 14-inch rear tires. Its production was closed in Detroit in August of 2017. The last example also came out on a whim, with allusive customization to the first generation of the Dodge Viper RT / 10, which includes Red Viper paint, carbon fiber details and black interior with Alcan Tara seats.

In 2014, a single copy of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat grossed $ 1.65 million in auction, also with charity income.


The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon uses a 6.2 V8 engine, the same as the Hellcat, but received a larger mechanical compressor to reach 843 horsepower using competitive gasoline. The eight-speed automatic transmission has a transmission brake to ensure fast and clean starts in the starts Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: Destroyed in less than 30 km.

Another car attending the used sports market in a bad state. And it’s not just any car. This Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was born thinking it would live a long time, but it was not what happened. All because of a barber behind the wheel. Do you know the indescribable sensation of leaving the dealership with a brand-new car, smelling that mixture of paint, glue and varnish? In the case of this Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the owner had this feeling for only a few blocks only. Until the recent arrival of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon,  the SRT Hellcat was considered the  most powerful series muscle car of all time. The point is that taming the 717 horsepower and 88 mkgf of torque – courtesy courtesy of the 6.2V8 HEMI engine – is no easy task for awkward hands and feet. The accident, whose details are unknown, happened in Maryland, in the United States, exactly 18 miles (about 29 km) after the car left the dealer with one unprepared at the wheel. Despite the destruction, the airbags appear to be preserved … The Dodge went to Cleveland Power & Performance, and is now available to anyone who wants to buy it and try to salvage it. Only the mechanics and the interior remained.

On Recife Avenue in the 1970s, a kind of thunder began to sound in the distance and always made me leave the house running to see what happened. And here he was, cutting through the Recife sky just before landing at the Guararapes airport. Its elegant wings carried two engines each, responsible for the noise hated by almost all but loved by me. Many still consider it the most beautiful commercial airplane ever built. The Boeing 707 was a childhood dream and made me imagine being in one of them someday, maybe even piloting it. Today, new thunder nourishes my imagination and will do so with many. Again the number 707 is part of this spell, now in the form of horsepower stored under the hood of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, which like Boeing comes from the 70s to put emotion in our life. The rational will be right in saying that no one needs a car with more than 700 HP. But that does not mean that no one wants one. It may be that some have to drive a Challenger Hellcat before being aware of it. Others will know it by listening to it and many more will do so simply after seeing the car and knowing what it can do. Because in reality Hellcat is a dream machine. It’s the kind of car we want even though we never use all its force, because it will be enough to know that it is there for when some not-so-normal instinct appears to us. It’s an American muscle car by definition, made to get to the next traffic light first. But you can do much more than that.

Unlike one of its biggest rivals, the fiftieth Mustang, Hellcat can make high-speed corners, even if it requires pilot experience or witchcraft. Because 707 HP (about 717 hp) placed on the rear wheels demand parsimony over the accelerator. You can not step deep in one moment or take your whole foot in another. Control and patience are paramount. Use the throttle wisely and the wonderful 6.2-liter V8 engine will do the rest. Few cars in the world will be able to follow the pace of this one that rescues the Dodge brand perhaps even more than the Viper simply because it is a closer, financially speaking dream. In Mexico, for example, it will cost little less than the Mustang Shelby GT 500 2014. To make this second generation of the most modern Challenger, Dodge’s designers sought inspiration in the models 1970 and 1971. There they found the divided grid, which is most noticeable in the V6 model, which has chrome frames around them. The same happens inside with the instrument panel, made up of two large watches also with chrome frames. Of course everything is digital now and can be set to change color, for example, but the shape is old.

There are four versions of the new Challenger. On the outside the differences are subtle. The main one is the hood, which has different air intakes and in case the Hellcat is made of aluminum. Others are the wheels, which have different shapes, colors and sizes. Inside the car the steering and the front seats also vary according to the version, being more rigid and with greater lateral support in the case of Hellcat, of course. Even with less than half the force, the V6 is not a slow car. With 3.6 liters and 305 HP (309 hp), you can beat most of the cars you find on the streets. Accelerate and the eight-speed automatic (present in all versions along with a six-speed mechanic) will make you respond quickly and glue your back on the seat. It just will not produce the same kind of intoxicating V8 sound that starts with R / T. The Challenger “upgrade” was so great that what was once its most sporty SRT version, now only achieves the slowest of the V8. But, believe me, your 470 HP (412 hp) will be enough to put a smile on the driver’s face and a frightened face on the passenger. Want more? The ScatPac has the same 6.4 liter machine, only with 485 HP (491 hp).
