Dodge to produce 1,000 more SRT Hellcats image

Dodge has recently announced that the production of the Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat will be supplemented by 1,000 units.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Charger SRT Hellcat have turned out to be more popular than initially believed and, even if the North American based automaker hasn’t announced initially how many units of the two it will be putting together, it seems that that unknown number will be raised by 1,000. This is Dodge’s response of the extremely high demand for the two models which don’t seem to be affected by the recent recall due to a potential fuel leak. Keep in mind that, besides being extremely powerful, the two vehicles will probably become future collectables if Dodge decides to cut production all of a sudden.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat have been introduced back in 2014 and the four-door model can be yours from 63,995 USD, while the two-door vehicle starts at 59,995 USD. This may seem like too expensive for a Charger / Challenger but keep in mind that both vehicles are sharing the same 6.2 liter V8 supercharged engine. The unit is capable of producing a total output of 707 HP (527 kW) and a peak torque of 880 Nm (650 lb-ft) of torque, which is basically more than most supercars. The Challenger SRT Hellcat is the most powerful production muscle car ever while the Charger is said to be the most powerful production sedan out there.
