Compared to the redesigned 2015 model, the 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will be offered with boosted equipment packages as well as a few minor tweaks. However, the pricing numbers for both the Charger and Challenger Hellcats will jump significantly as of the next year. Namely, the 2016 Charger SRT Hellcat will start at $68,640, which is a $3,650 increase compared to the previous model. The company’s decision to go with higher pricing for the performance-oriented Charger is actually a result of soaring demand for the Hellcat models. Considering the fact that Dodge’s performance sedan offers probably the highest value for money in this segment, we expect the 2017 model to become even more popular.
2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Design and Features
As far as the exterior design is concerned, expect the 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat to come with its familiar aggressively shaped styling. Apart from several subtle tweaks applied on the front fascia, the upcoming model will carry over basically unchanged. After the latest overhaul, the Charger comes with a sleeker front grille and reshaped headlights. At the back, expect to see a rounded-off tail adorned with „racetrack“ tail-lamps. Generally speaking, the redesigned Charger boasts a low and aggressive stance. Inside the cabin, there will be no major changes. Once again, the model will be offered with plenty of high-quality materials and several sleek features. Those include a revised instrument cluster, a 7-inch customizable gauge cluster and a new electronic shifter. It will also come with the Uconnect infotainment system with an optional 8.4-inch touchscreen.
2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Engine Specs
The 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat won’t differ from its predecessor when it comes to the engine department. There will be the tried and tested 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that cranks out 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. This immense power is transmitted to the wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to these impressive output numbers, the Charger SRT Hellcat boasts the title of the most powerful production sedan in the world.
2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Release Date
