Dodge muscles its way to July 4 with supercharged SRT lineup
MANILA: In line with the 4th of July celebration in the US, Dodge aims to continuously push boundaries with the launch of three exceptional SRT models, namely, the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, and the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. All of these are equipped with supercharged HEMI engines.
The new 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is considered to be the most powerful and quickest muscle car in the world. The drag-racing, quarter-mile-crushing essence of the limited-edition 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has lived on through the 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock.
The same supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V-8 engine brings power to the Challenger SRT Super Stock, and it also currently provides power to the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. It is mated to the TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Challenger SRT Super Stock generates a power output of 807hp on pump gas, a 10-hp boost over the standard SRT Hellcat Redeye, and 959Nm of torque.
Meanwhile, the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is deemed as the fastest and strongest mass-produced sedan globally. The SRT models make the halo for the whole 2021 Dodge Charger lineup, which provides a complete range of powerful engine alternatives configured to meet the preferences and needs of numerous Dodge performance aficionados.
Aside from the new Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye with a 797hp supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V8 engine, the Charger lineup also features the iconic 5.7-liter HEMI V8 on the Charger R/T, providing 370hp and 535Nm.
It also includes the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine on the Charger SRT Hellcat, which generates an output of 717hp and 881Nm.
Another inclusion is the 392-cubic-inch HEMI V8 engine on the Charger Scat Pack, providing the most horsepower for each dollar of any sedan in the auto industry. It takes pride in a high-end, naturally aspirated output of 485hp and 644Nm.
The Charger lineup also includes the well-acclaimed 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine matched with the most innovative all-wheel-drive (AWD) system of the segment.
The Pentastar V6 brings up to 300hp of output and 358Nm of torque, which is standard on the Charger GT and GT AWD models, as well as the Charger SXT AWD model. This is due to engine calibration, sport-tuned exhaust, and a distinct cold-air induction system. A standard 292hp of output and 353Nm of torque are also produced on the SXT RWD model.
Being another muscle car, the Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat joins the Charger and Challenger SRT models as one of the most powerful SUVs to date. The proven supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine provides power to the Durango SRT, and it produces 710hp of output and 875Nm of torque.
Aside from the eye-catching Durango SRT Hellcat, the whole 2021 Dodge Durango lineup provides buyers with a wide array of engine options ideal for their needs.
These include the 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8 that provides 475hp and 637Nm, and the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, which is rated at 360hp and 529Nm with a tow rating of 3,357 kg.
Fuel-Saver Technology with cylinder-deactivation smoothly shifts between seamless, high fuel-economy four-cylinder mode and V8 mode when higher power is needed.
The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine produces up to 295hp of power output and 353Nm of torque. The Durango has an available high-end V6 towing capacity of 2,812 kg. Standard engine stop-start (ESS) technology reduces its emissions while being fuel-efficient.
The Challenger SRT Super Stock is not limited in terms of production and will proceed as the ultimate Dodge drag-racing model in the 2021 model year. Dealer orders for this particular Dodge model are also scheduled by the middle of 2020, and arrival in Dodge SRT dealerships are expected later this year.
As for the 2021 Dodge Charger models, dealer orders will also be open by the middle of 2020, and this will include the new SRT Hellcat Redeye vehicles, which are scheduled to roll out in dealerships by early 2021.
