Dodge will update its bonkers 707bhp Charger Hellcat for the 2018 model year. This is a mid-life update for the American automaker’s road legal quarter mile muncher and should see it get a whole load cosmetic updates both on the inside and outside.
Exterior changes include a new grille, lighting package and possibly a more muscular hood to give this first generation a massive hurrah! The interiors will get some feature upgrades and some new bits in terms of plastics but is likely to remain the same beyond that. Continuing to put the Hell in Hellcat will be that massive V8 but its output is likely to remain unchanged from the current model’s 707bhp.
Our spy sources have indicated that the next-gen Hellcat (due in 2021) will share its underpinnings with the Alfa Romeo Giulia. This is a widely expected move considering that everyone is now moving to a modular platform setup across brands.
