2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye
Dodge is at it again with their announcement of the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.
- 797 Horsepower
- 10.8 Second 1/4 Mile Time (Widebody)
- Dual Air Intakes
- Improved Launch Mode
- 2.7 -liter Supercharge
While the limited run of the Dodge Demon is over, this new Hellcat seems to be possessed.
Pulling from the advancements of its’ big brother the Demon, the new Redeye Hellcat is packing a whopping 797 Horsepower and some new tech to put all that power to the ground in a hurry.
A more robust 2.7-liter supercharger, dual air intakes, and the all new “power chiller” will help this monster engine gobble up air and keep it cool on the way to making some serious power.
The new hood is functional and has two snarling hood scoops ready to gulp air in bulk.
Borrowing again from the Demon, the new Redeye will come standard with a line lock to brake only the front tires for tire heating burnouts and a launch control system designed to reduce “wheel hop” on takeoff. The trans-brake, drag mode calibration, ECU, and optional seat (or lack thereof) are not offered on this model, keeping the Demon at the top of this rambunctious pack of modern muscle cars from Mopar.
The 2019 Redeye Hellcat will have standard and widebody options, with the wide body allowing for meatier tires that will help you get down the track faster. Early stats from Dodge indicate the 1/4 mile times on the widebody are 10.8 while the standard width is 11.1 seconds.
They didn’t sacrifice top end speeds either, with a reported top speed of 203 MPH, that is limited to around 195. Behind the powertrain we expect to see the same Torqueflite 8 speed transmission found in the earlier hellcats, along with the manual option.
If pricing follows suit, the Redeye hellcat is expected to come in between 65K and 85K according to early sources. Late fall is when this new beast is expected to be available to order.
Just when you have seen it all from Dodge, they drop the hammer again.
