2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

The first appearance of the nameplate, the Dodge Silver Challenger, was introduced in 1958, forever changing the landscape of classic muscle cars. Now, several generations later, the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and its sibling, the Charger SRT Hellcat, are the most powerful American muscle cars on the market.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat produces 707 horsepower, putting it right up there with many exotics and supercars – and the price is tens of thousands of dollars less than similarly powered offerings from more exclusive brands.

The power for this rear-wheel drive American muscle car comes from a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that makes 650 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The Challenger SRT Hellcat can achieve a 0 to 60 mph run in just over three seconds.

The 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat might be too much muscle for some drivers to manage on a daily basis, but that’s no reason to completely overlook this modern classic. Several more Challenger trims are available, offering between 305 and 485 horsepower from a selection of V6 and V8 engines.
