Dodge unveiled the 2019 Challenger model yesterday, and now the company has announced that the Hellcat Redeye will cost $ 69,650.
Priced at $ 15,345 less than the Challenger SRT Demon, the Hellcat Redeye offers a number of the same high-performance modifications. Above all, the car's 6.2-liter V8 engine has a 2.7-liter supercharger, improved fuel injection and reinforced pistons. These changes allow the mill to achieve 797 hp (594 kW / 808 hp) and 957 Nm of torque.
The Hellcat Redeye is offered exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission and allows the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km / h) in 3.4 seconds before reaching a top speed of 323 km / h. Dodge also claims that the model is the "fastest Grand Touring production car", as it can cover the quarter mile at 21
While the Redeye is the star of the show, the standard Challenger SRT Hellcat becomes much more affordable. Dodge has lowered the price by more than $ 5,000 and the Hellcat is now starting at $ 58,650. Despite the price reduction, the car has a modernized engine that delivers 717 hp (534 kW / 727 hp) and a torque of 888 Nm (16659 Nm).
Now that the funny stuff is out of the way, we start at the beginning. The entry-level Challenger SXT RWD costs from 27,295 US dollars and has a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 305 hp (227 kW / 309 hp) and 363 Nm of torque. The car can be additionally equipped with four-wheel drive for $ 3,000.
For 2019, there is a new Challenger GT RWD, which costs $ 29,995. The model comes standard with a Super Track Pak, which includes a performance suspension, a sportier bonnet and a front splitter. The package also includes fabric Houndstooth seats, steering wheel mounted paddle shifter (on automatic models) and 20-inch Granite Crystal painted wheels. The GT is powered by the aforementioned V6 engine and four-wheel drive is optional.
The cheapest way to get behind the wheel of a V8 model is to order a Challenger R / T that starts at $ 34,100. It has a 5.7-liter HEMI that generates up to 375 hp (280 kW / 380 hp) and 410 lb (555 Nm) of torque.
Buyers who have Hellcat dreams and R / T budgets want the Challenger R / T Scat Pack. Pricing starts at $ 38,995, but the decision to manually submit results in a $ 1,000 gastrore tax. That's unfortunate, but the model has a 6.4-liter V8, 485 hp (361 kW / 491 hp) and 475 lb-ft (643 Nm) of torque.
