9 Things You Should Know About the Dodge Challenger Hellcat

Dodge shocked the industry when it announced the 2015 Challenger Hellcat. The retro-inspired muscle car wouldn't just have a big V8 engine under the hood. It would have a monster. The Hellcat V8 is capable of 707 horsepower, launching the Challenger from zero to 60 mph in the mid-three second range.

The company touted it as the quickest, fastest, most powerful muscle car ever. Two years later, the Challenger Hellcat (and its Dodge Charger Hellcat sibling) still own the U.S. horsepower crown.

While the performance hasn’t changed from the original 2015, Dodge has applied a few tweaks to the model for 2017. Dodge upgraded its already excellent UConnect infotainment system to the latest version, which now supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
