2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Announced



We are still not over the SRT Demon, and the mourning period over that Challenger model might last forever. But, Dodge is introducing a special Challenger SRT Hellcat that might diminish the pain. The SRT Hellcat Redeye aims to fill the hole that the Demon left behind becoming the most powerful, the fastest, and the quickest muscle car on the market. This announcement of the SRT Hellcat Redeye comes at the perfect time, giving Dodge enthusiasts something more to look forward to after the success of the SRT Demon. To learn more about this beast of a muscle car, continue reading down below! You'll be impressed by its power, style, and capabilities.

What engine powers the Hellcat Redeye?

A familiar friend can be found underneath the hood of the Redeye. The SRT Demon's engine has found a new home, and that supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V8 engine is now living comfortably in the Redeye. This engine pairs itself with an eight-speed automatic TorqueFlite transmission, and it produces up to 707 pound-feet of torque and 797 horsepower. This engine is complex, and powerful, boasting twenty-five major component upgrades. Those upgrades include a fuel injection system, a larger supercharger, an improved lubrication system, high-speed valve train, and strengthened connecting rods and pistons. The Redeye's engine means business with an rpm limit that is 6,500, which is 300 rpm more than the standard SRT Hellcat engine. It also has a larger induction air box by using three different sources of intake air: and inlet near the wheel liner, driver-side air catcher headlamp, and a new dual-snorkel hood. Other important facts about the Redeye's engine is that it is the only factory production car that gives you both After-Run chiller and SRT Power chiller, and the high-strength steel prop shafts are available to produce a 15% increase in the torque capacity.

What kind of performance features come with the Redeye?

Performance is the number one priority in a vehicle like the SRT Hellcat Redeye. They were built for speed and power, and Dodge doesn't shy away from the challenge. The Redeye comes with performance features like a larger induction air box, torque reserve, adaptive damping suspension, SRT performance pages, line lock, launch control, SRT drive modes, braking system, and electric power steering. Launch assist in particular is important for the Redeye, and it was actually first launched with the SRT Demon. This system helps the Challenger to regain traction if a slip occurs. These vehicles use wheel speed sensors to look out for slippage/sticking, and that is incredibly vital for launching. Another impressive feature is the SRT drive modes. This is accessed through the Uconnect touchscreen, and helps the driver to perfectly tailor their experience. They can adjust paddle shifters, transmission shift speeds, suspension settings, and even horsepower.

What does the interior of the Redeye look like?

While performance might be why you initially look at the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the sleek interior will be why you know you need to buy one. Every Hellcat interior comes with a signature flat-bottom and leather-wrapped steering wheel that has paddle shifters and a backlit SRT logo. The Redeye kicks things up a notch by including a 220-mpg red speedometer, an SRT Hellcat Redeye logo on the key fobs, an SRT Hellcat Redeye logo splash screen, and a Light Black Chrome instrument panel badge that also features the SRT Hellcat Redeye logo. There are also a few seat options offered, including Laguna leather/Alcantara with embossed logo, Laguna leather with embossed logo, and Nappa leather/Alcantara with embroidered logo. You'll know as soon as you sit down that you're in the Redeye, and once you sit down, you'll never want to leave.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger is a powerful addition to the legacy of the Challenger. The Redeye is filling the hole that was left behind when the last Demon rolled off the production line. To become a part of the brotherhood, check out our 2018 Dodge Challenger inventory today!
