The biggest announcement made when it comes to the Dodge Challenger is the new Redeye model which finds a way to replace the Demon and be what should be a model that sticks around for a longer amount of time. While this new model has been announced and will certainly take its rightful place at the top of the lineup as the Challenger that offers you more power, the rest of the Challenger models also receive improvements to make sure you can have even more of what you want across the different trims.
Let’s Take a Look at the Upgrades
Challenger SRT Hellcat
Although you might not expect this car to be one that’s improved, the Hellcat is the beneficiary of ten more horsepower to give you 717 for the drive. The torque is improved to 656 lb.-ft. and a new dual-snorkel hood allows the car to have more of what you need and a larger volume intake box. Add a new Launch Assist Line Lock feature and you’re going to have the fun you want when you turn a burnout.
Widebody Appearance Package
The Widebody appearance package is offered for two of the Challenger models which are the Hellcat and the R/T Scat Pack models. This package offers you broad shouldered fender flares that allow the car to have an increase in width by 3.5 inches. If you choose this package you’re going to have forged aluminum 20-inch wheels that are wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires, making this a fantastic combination for your drive. This package also offers stiffer front springs, retuned dampers, larger sway bars, and new fascias in the front and rear to improve the airflow.
R/T Scat Pack
One upgrade to this model is the fact that you can now choose this car without the rear seat inside, much the same as the Hellcat. This impressive car makes use of the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine that’s found under an aluminum hood with a dedicated air intake and dual heat extractors. This is another one of the Challenger models that has the Launch Control Line Lock feature, SRT Drive modes, and much more.
Making These Two Models Faster
The improvements made to these two Challenger models faster than the previous models. The R/T Scat Pack Widebody Challenger is about two seconds faster around the track than the one that was offered in the past. This time equates to about twelve car lengths during a lap. This car also has the ability to complete the quarter mile in 12.1 seconds at 112 mph to be fast and fun to drive.
Whether you choose the R/T Scat Pack model or the new Hellcat that’s been upgraded, the Challenger that you buy is one that will absolutely offer you the added benefits of more performance and qualities
that make a lot of sense for you on the track. Take the right one and start to have more fun when you drive and schedule the track time you want to enjoy.
