    After literally years of rumors, the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT became official today, with a “600-plus horsepower” Hellcat engine. The 392 Challenger SRT will return for 2015, as well. Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge, said, “Dodge is the Mainstream Performance brand, and now combined with SRT, we are able to unleash a true GT car with an all-new driver-focused interior and the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission combined with the most powerful V-8 Chrysler has ever produced. The Challenger Hellcat has been released!” [​IMG]
    Production is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2014. Dodge has not released the power rating of the supercharged Hemi engine,  but said its horsepower rating would be the highest of any V8 in Chrysler’s history (the second highest belongs to the current Challenger SRT’s 392 Hemi engine, at 485 hp.)

    I think I really like the Hellcat front fascia much better than the 2015 smile.

    Appears that the red one is the Hellcat considering the lack of fog lamps, massive brakes and what appears to be some really sticky tires.

    Kind of sad that Ralph pushed this car to life and Kuniskis gets to make the announcement...

    Expect more of this happening under the new current brand structure.

    It begs the question; without Ralph pushing, will we see anything like this again?

    And I sure hope he will stay that! Although I think he is an important overall spokesperson for the whole company!

    So the suspense is going to kill people. What's the max. hp rating and what's the price :)

    Now that the official release is out with all kinds of juice, people on the Challenger forums stopped whining and arguing about the re-style, and has everyone drooling and checking their bank accounts.

    It's kind of funny, really.

    I like the minimalistic badging. Especially, seeing "Supercharged" on the fender...instead of "Kompressor", or "Sovralimentato"

    See, that's just it. Ralph has the passion and vision to drive stuff like this. Just don't give him any administrative responsibilities because he is going to mismanage them.
    Thanks, Dave.

    On Exterior, you may also want to indicate that a Hellcat grille differs from other Challengers, in that it resembles that of early 1970s Satellite 2-doors.
