We now know when the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye will enter production.
For the 2019 model year, Dodge introduced the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with nearly as much power as the discontinued Dodge Demon. But what if you want a more practical sedan version of the Challenger Redeye? Thanks to a social media advert Dodge mistakingly posted earlier this year, we know it's only a matter of time before the four-door Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat gets the Redeye treatment.
While the muscle car's launch was reportedly pushed back to 2021, Mopar Insiders has learned from its sources that production of the new Charger will start in November, suggesting that the Redeye version will debut sooner rather than later.
Specifically, the publication claims that production of the 2021 Dodge Charger will begin at the Brampton Assembly Plant on November 9, with customer orders allegedly opening on the first week of October for the 2021 model. Hopefully, this means the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye will debut sometime this summer.
Like the standard Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, the Redeye version will only be available as a Widebody. Visual changes will include a modified hood with a larger scoop along with a modified Redeye grille, decklid, and fender badging.
Under the hood, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat's 6.2-liter supercharged V8 sends 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, enabling the high-performance sedan to sprint from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds.
Expect the output in the Redeye version to increase to 797 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque, matching the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, while the rev limit will increase from 6,200 to 6,500 rpm. While the standard Charger SRT Hellcat's top speed was reduced from 204 mph to 196 mph with the Widebody kit, we're expecting the Charger Redeye will increase it back to 204 mph.
