It could be, perhaps, that the muscle car brand is saving more serious updates for the Charger’s future model years. Mopar Insiders, citing insiders, reported on Saturday that the 2020 Dodge Charger will receive a wide-body option, just like the Challenger first did for 2018., 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye
2020 dodge challenger – Designed and engineered with more power to appeal to an even broader muscle car enthusiast audience, the heart of the new 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye comes from its limited-production big brother – the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V-8 engine is rated at 797 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque and is mated to a TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission.
Like its Demon brethren, it has 25 major component upgrades, including a larger supercharger, strengthened connecting rods and pistons, high-speed valve train, fuel injection system and improved lubrication system.
Compared with the standard SRT Hellcat engine, the Redeye’s supercharged high-output engine features:
Largest factory supercharger of any production car – 2.7 liters versus 2.4 liters
Increased boost pressure: 14.5 psi versus 11.6 psi
Higher rpm limit: 6,500 rpm versus 6,200 rpm
Fuel: Two dual-stage fuel pumps versus one
At full throttle, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye’s high-output engine consumes 1.43 gal/min (5.4 liters/min) of fuel – enough to drain the fuel tank in just under 11 minutes, yet is still rated at 22 miles per gallon (mpg) when driven in normal highway conditions
Larger induction air box with three sources of intake air:
New dual-snorkel hood
Driver-side Air Catcher headlamp
Inlet near the wheel liner
Additional features from the SRT Demon that help the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye achieve its status as the most powerful, quickest and fastest muscle car:
Torque Reserve delivers up to 3.9 psi of boost at launch and up to 55 percent more engine torque
Only factory production car with both SRT Power Chiller™ and After-Run Chiller
High-strength steel prop shafts provide a 15 percent increase in torque capacity
41-spline half shafts provide a 20 percent increase in torque capacity
New for 2019, SRT Hellcat Redeye offers two final drive ratios, a standard 2.62:1 or available 3.09:1 for enhanced launch capability.
The 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat lineup delivers improved performance numbers, including a new top speed of 203 miles per hours (mph), making the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye the most powerful, quickest and fastest muscle car.
