Hellcat: “Black fob” limit, more

by David Zatz on

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT

Buyers of the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat can limit themselves or other drivers to “just” 500 horsepower (more than the 392’s top rating) by using the black key fob, reserving the red fob for racing or for themselves, according to Chrysler’s Russ Ruedisueli.

SRT powertrain chief Chris Cowland reported that the supercharger’s design and specifications were jointly developed by Chrysler and IHI.

The 2014 and 2015 Challenger 392 have similar coefficients of drag, but the 2015’s “aero balance” has been improved, according to Mr. Ruedisueli.

The 6.2 liter displacement was caused by a reduction in stroke from the 392; the stroke was reduced to increase the strength of the camshaft.

Both 392 and Hellcat will have the full factory warranty, according to Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis.
