Without any pun intended, it’s a true fact to say that the new 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is “hell on wheels” and that’s in a good way. It’s the latest in the new line of highly sought after Dodge Muscle Cars. All 2017 Challenger and Charger models feature the newest UConnect infotainment system, with higher levels of smartphone connectivity, faster load times and improves graphics, along with the Hellcat head on the dash, seat backs and rear spoil- er. This system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features. There are plenty of additional features such as a GPS, internet connection, display, Hub, USB ports, and many others. There are 5 seats for adults.

The Hellcat’s engine is the heartbeat of the car. It’s a supercharged 707-HP 6.2L HEMI® SRT Hellcat V8 engine pushes muscle to its very limit, exerting a monstrous 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The Charger SRT® Hellcat features Performance-tuned steering to give the driver good vehicle response and increased ease of maneuverability in tight spaces.

SRT® Hellcat Key Fobs. Owners of the Charger SRT® Hellcat are handed both a red and black key fob at delivery. The black key restricts power to 500 horsepower, while the red key unlocks the full 707 horsepower of the Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® SRT Hellcat V8 engine. The car has the capabilities to go up to 200 mph. A quick revving up of the engine deep and powerful, as if it’s roaring down the highway in surround sound!

This car is for the true die-hard car enthusiast. It’s a total attention grabber that has fans everywhere the driver takes it. Whether it was the gas station, restaurant or just for a casual drive through the city, the Hellcat is a head turner. Our reviewer reports: “I stopped by my local cell phone carrier and several guys were ranting and raving about this car. They started sharing their own car stories on how they’re refurbishing old sports cars. One guy even said that he would gladly trade his wife in ex- change for the Hellcat!.”

Inside the Hellcat the fun continues. There’s 19 colors to choose from. Inside you will find upholstery wrapped with premium soft-touch materials. Houndstooth cloth seats are standard. Seats and comfort- able but still stylish. The only not so fun aspect of the Hellcat is the gas mileage. The big engine. The big torque and the massive horsepower have to be fed, so the numbers are MPG: 13 city / 22 highway. But if you’re a fan of the big, the fast and the serious muscle cars, then it’s worth it!
