The new Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, Challenger SRT Super Stock, and Durango SRT Hellcat are here.
Dodge wasn't messing around yesterday when it unleashed three horsepower-crazy monsters at the same time. There was the Challenger SRT Super Stock, the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, and the Durango SRT Hellcat. All provide whiplash-inducing power and performance in three very different body styles. So, to help you keep track of what is what, we've summarized them here, starting with the Challenger SRT Super Stock, which Dodge confidently touts as the most powerful muscle car in the world.
You could consider the Super Stock as the spiritual successor to the Challenger SRT Demon, but it won't be production-limited. Under the hood, the Super Stock has a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 pumping out an insane 807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. That eclipses the 797 hp of the Hellcat Redeye and will see it reach 60 mph in 3.25 seconds and complete the quarter-mile in 10.5.
A standard Widebody kit adds 3.5 inches of lateral muscle to the Super Stock's body. It also has 18-inch lightweight wheels that are wrapped in Nitto NT05R drag radial tires. The Super Stock only comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission but it, along with the ESC system, are tuned for maximum straight-line speed.
For those needing more practicality but the same venomous performance, there's the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, "the most powerful sedan in the world." Its 6.2-liter supercharged V8 makes 797 hp and 707 lb-ft. All that goes to the rear wheels and, if conditions are ideal, it'll hit 60 mph in the "mid 3s", clear the quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds, and top out at a mad 203 mph. As the quickest Charger ever, it'll complete a 2.1-mile road course 1.2 seconds before the Charger SRT Hellcat. Oh, and check out that new performance hood.
Because kids also have commitments and need to get to places in a hurry, there's the 2021 Durango SRT Hellcat which Dodge says, you guessed it, is the "most powerful SUV ever." Then again, how many other three-row SUVs do you know of that produce 710 hp and 645 lb-ft? It'll hit 60 in 3.5 seconds, clear the quarter-mile in 11.5, and top out at 180 mph.
The Durango SRT Hellcat is still an SUV, though, so it'll tow up to 8,700 lbs if you need to and it has a new 10.1-inch touchscreen system, if you care. Unlike its smaller coupe/sedan siblings, the SUV sends power to all four wheels.
Yes, with these three new hellraisers, the Dodge Brotherhood Of Muscle is well-positioned to win any brawls with rivals from Ford and Chevrolet.
