Get up to date information on the offspring of the Maserati Ghibli, the 2019 hellcat car. The 2019 hellcat car is better than ever, take a look at the changes made to this famous vehicle.


It's no secret this car is a powerful monster. If the Hellcat stitching wasn't enough, the two-key system is a secret tool. The black key fob unlocks an impressive 500 horsepower. When you're ready to unleash the beast, the red key fob allows all 717 horses to run wild. (Source: www.dodge.com

With bigger fender for extra flair and a powerful engine for strength, the Challenger SRT® Hellcat Redeye Widebody is a taunting machine.

A bigger car only means you own more of the road, without sacrificing weight or handling. The Challenger SRT® Hellcat Widebody still boasts a powerful 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque. (Source:www.dodge.com))

From the interior seats to the doors and fenders, the red eye in the Hellcat emblem boasts the whopping top speed of 203 mph, 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. It's no secret a little detail goes a long way, and the red key fob is your secret tool to unlock the full might of the soul-shattering engine.

Few new cars could be sent back to the late '60s or early '70s and not look like they're from the future, but the 2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is one that could. Sure, the coupe's assortment of available driver assists and crisp touchscreen infotainment system would be out of place, but its thundering V-8, gas-sucking fuel economy, and retro appearance would fit right in. Of course, its outrageous horsepower ratings (717 on the regular Hellcat, 797 on the Redeye), and the 807-hp Super Stock's claimed 10.5-second quarter-mile time, would be as shocking as when Marty McFly shreds the electric guitar at the end of Back to the Future. Even in 2022, the Challenger's supercharged Hellcat engine is impressive, and its available widebody treatment makes it look more badass and helps it handle better. Still, it can't keep up with the Chevy Camaro ZL1 or Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 on a road-racing circuit. No worries, though. For folks looking to get nostalgic or dominate the drag strip, the Challenger SRT Hellcat is the machine to get.

The Widebody version looks cooler with its flared fenders and handles better, thanks largely to wider wheels and tires, so that's the one we'd choose. Despite the fact that the SRT Hellcat is all about excess, we wouldn't opt for the Redeye model that increases power to nearly 800 horses. In fact, during our testing, the Redeye wasn't quicker than the standard Hellcat because its tires simply couldn't put the extra grunt to the ground. (Source: www.caranddriver.com)

The mad scientists at Dodge's SRT laboratory pulled a Samuel L. Jackson and went all Old Testament with the almighty Hellcat engine. The standard setup makes "only" 717 horsepower, and the version in the Redeye pumps out 797 horses. The 807-hp Super Stock model features dedicated equipment for drag racing. Paired with the optional eight-speed automatic transmission, the last Challenger SRT Redeye Widebody we tested roared to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and completed the quarter-mile in 11.8 seconds at 125 mph. We've driven several Hellcats and—as expected—never got tired of tapping into the endless power supply. However, launching the unruly beast straight and true is an exercise in extreme car control. Every model had an insidious growl at startup that builds to a hellish howl under heavy throttle. The Hellcat's distinct supercharger whine will send shivers down your spine from either fear or excitement—most likely both. These high-performance Challengers might not be the ultimate tools for a track-attack event, but they're quick as hell in a straight line and handle well enough to hustle down twisty back roads—provided your heavy right foot knows when to let up.

The 2022 Challenger SRT Hellcat doesn't power-slam gas like a competitive drinker—at least, not more than its competition. Its rated at 13 mpg in the city and up to 22 mpg on the highway. The Camaro ZL1 and Shelby GT500 top out at 14/21 mpg city/highway and 12/18 mpg city/highway, respectively. The last Hellcat Challenger we ran on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, wasn't far off its 22-mpg EPA estimate.

The 2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, which comes standard with 717 horsepower, is one helluva family sedan. Not only are its big back seat and trunk great for taking more than two people on trips or just out to lunch, it accelerates so ferociously that the same passengers will be cussing up a storm or asking for an airsick bag­–or both. For an extra dose of "hold onto your butts," the Redeye model boasts a ridiculous 797 horses and will hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds on its way to a claimed 203-mph top speed. While all that power might be too much for some, the widebody-only Charger actually handles surprisingly well for its size. Just expect better communication from your in-laws than from its steering. Compared with high-performance, six-figure luxury cars such as the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S and Porsche Panamera Turbo S, the 2022 Charger SRT Hellcat is a great value. Too bad its interior looks like it came from a car that costs less than half its nearly $75,000 starting price—which it does.

Unlike last year's model, the '22 Charger SRT Hellcat now comes standard with a deluxe security alarm. Otherwise the incredibly powerful sedan enters the model year unchanged.
