Final Dodge Challenger Hellcat to have 909 horsepower

Final Dodge Challenger Hellcat to have 909 horsepower

The days of the supercharged V8 engine are numbered so why not go out in style? That’s what Dodge must think if the latest news about the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is true.

While still officially unconfirmed, there are numerous rumours around a super Hellcat that will deliver 909 hp.

The usually reliable guys at Mopar Insiders are talking about a final version of the Hellcat that will be the last hurrah before going electric, or at least being electrified in one form or another.

They said they had interviewed someone on the inside who said Dodge couldn’t hit the four figure power output mark but weren’t far from it. A little guesswork later hit the 909 hp figure, which was confirmed by that insider.

Dodge has yet to confirm or deny the rumour, but it is compelling and exactly what we would imaging the automaker would do!

2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat

The 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is an extreme example of what a sedan can achieve but is popular enough on our streets to warrant a close look.

It uses the same familiar Challenger design with a few tweaks to prove it’s a little different. Of course, you’ll know it’s something special as soon as you hear the engine!

The Challenger is a big car with acres of interior space and enough space to sit four or five adults with ease.

The seats are comfortable and the suspension can easily cope with whatever you put through the back wheels. Despite how it looks, the ride is very comfortable and composed, even when the foot hits the floor.

With uConnect, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you get a very usable infotainment system with navigation, voice control and most functions you need. All within an easy to use system that’s among the best out there.

Engine and drivetrain

The 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat has a 6.4-litre supercharged V8 engine that delivers 717 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels.

It uses an 8 speed automatic transmission that works well in this configuration. It delivers instant power and smooth transition through the gears without leaving you wanting.

Just because it delivers awesome power doesn’t mean the car misbehaves. This isn’t one of those cars that’s all or nothing. Once you’re used to us, you can drive the car sensibly around town without burning rubber.

That’s definitely in its favour!

The 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat definitely isn’t for everyone but it’s more versatile than you might think. It’s spacious, well-behaved when you want it to be and who can forget that V8 whine?
