2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is a possible new version of the old and famous model, which should not be changed a lot from the last model expect one thing – the engine. As we heard, there are plans that new Hellcat gets 850 horsepower strong engine, which actually change all we know about muscle cars.
As we said, the most interesting about 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is its engine strength. According to rumors, there are chances that manufacturer will boost up the strength from 707 to even 850 horsepower! The question is why the manufacturer will do that and offer an engine that not many people could by, especially if we know that this manufacturer has always been among the highest in the class and surely very attractive to buyers. The reason could be 3 years of pausing in any field, including improvement of the engine and speed. Now is time for that change.
Engine and Performance
Although there are many barriers and obstacles, there is small chance that this could be managed in the future. We saw that Hemi engine jumped to even 1,000 horsepower, so why this engine could do the same? In that case, the manufacturer could use the same 6.2-liter V6 engine and improve it for additional 150 horses. As the matter of fact, current model officially has 707 horsepower but it showed 725 horsepower on test driving, while there are some modified engines from this manufacturer that produces even 900 horsepower on the basic engine made for Hellcat. Taking that in mind, it could raise this number for 100 horses; even the manufacturer does not particularly expect that.
However, keep in mind that engines with much less horsepower increase the speed of 60 mph for less than 10 seconds, so having the engine with 850 horsepower could be very heavy for driving and handling. On the other hand, that could be easily resolved with a better stick and wider tires, which is already a part of the additional equipment. Thanks to new brakes and safety system, 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat could be a very safe car, even at higher speed.
2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Release Date and Price
We are still not sure if the making of this strong engine is possible, but let’s say that manufacturer is considering that possibility, too. However, there is a big reason why is not possible, at least in some US States. A strong legislation about CO2 and fuel emission forbids making of engines stronger than 700 horsepower. 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was a great idea, but still not quite possible.
