- Both the teasers came a week apart from each other.
- The Challenger SRT Hellcat is teased with a retro hood scoop.
- The Charger SRT Hellcat will get an air intake on revised nostril grille.
- Both the cars are expected to debut this summer.
Dodge will update its muscle car duo for 2019 this summer and have teased both the cars with the SRT Hellcat package. The Challenger SRT Hellcat will get a retro-inspired dual-snorkel hood inspired by classic Mopar designs from yesteryears. Meanwhile, the Charger SRT Hellcat sedan will get a nostril-intake flanking the revised front grille.
The 707bhp Challenger will get a hood ornament paying tribute to the classic Mopar design seen on the early muscle cars of the mid-1960s and early-1970s. The functional hood scoop will feed air to the supercharger lurking underneath. The old-school muscle car will also get some design elements and running gear from the monstrous Demon. The 6.2-litre Hemi V8 might get a slight bump in power output as well. We expect the ‘Drag Pack’ to add additional features such as drag mode, Nitto tyres and some tweak to the infotainment system.
On the other hand, the Charger SRT Hellcat will get a cosmetic update which will introduce a new front grille. The nostril-intake is teased in the image adjacent to the SRT logo. Just like the hood scoop, the nostril intake will be functional. Apart from the revised grille, we expect some other cosmetic changes that will keep the design of the Charger fresh and a tad more intimidating. There will be upgraded cabin design as well along with a boost in power output. The top-spec Challenger will use the same supercharged Hemi V8 but with an uprated 725bhp on tap. We also expect a wide body kit, drag radials, and more borrowed from the Demon.
Dodge will take the wraps off the 2019 Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat this summer. Currently, both the cars are due for a generation change only in 2021. So this update will keep them fresh for another couple of years.
