2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is getting a meaner hood

  2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is getting a meaner hood Though we weren't really worried Dodge would discontinue it, we're glad to hear the Dodge Challenger Hellcat will continue into the 2019 model year.  A little bit of Photoshop work helps highlight some other aspects of the 2019 Challenger Hellcat. The Hellcat Widebody will clearly continue for the new year, too, as the vehicle in the teaser image has the bulging arches found on that Challenger as well as the one-year-only Demon. We can also make out five-spoke wheels that may have split spokes. Most of the body looks like the current model, too, so we don't expect any major changes to the chassis or powertrain.

Last month, Dodge teased the updated 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and its new grille with air intakes. Now we get to see it before its full debut thanks to these spy shots . An updated version of the Challenger will be revealed at the same time.

Last month, Dodge teased the updated 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and its new grille with air intakes. Now we get to see it before its full debut thanks to these spy shots. We can see that the grille is one of the few things that has changed for the 2019 model year. It also appears to have a new hood that has extractor vents farther back than on the current model. We can also see that this new grille is on an SRT 392 Scat Pack model, not the Hellcat teased a month ago. This seems to imply the grille will be applied to all Charger SRT models, or at least offered as an option.

2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat gets a Challenger-style intake in the grille

  2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat gets a Challenger-style intake in the grille Yesterday, we discovered that Dodge was working on some sort of update to the nose of the Charger Hellcat. Today, Dodge revealed what the change is. It's a new grille with an intake outlet.Basically, the 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat will have the equivalent of the Challenger Hellcat's intake headlight. But since there isn't a convenient light to cut a hole in, Dodge just put a bigger hole in the grille next to the driver's side headlight. Presumably it leads right to the intake box like the intake on the Challenger.Close examination also reveals that the mesh has changed, as well.

Aside from the grille and the hood, the rest of this new Charger looks like the outgoing version. The bumpers, spoiler, side skirts and lights all seem to be carryover. As such, we're not expecting anything else to change radically under the hood or chassis. There's a possibility one or two engines pick up a few horsepower, but we don't expect much more than that.

If anything else changes to the 2019 Charger, it will probably consist of colors, options and maybe even another trim level. We'll know more about it when it makes its official debut this summer. An updated version of the Challenger will be revealed at the same time.


Dodge Makes a Naturally Aspirated Drag Strip Monster .
If you're looking for a drag-ready Challenger, but don't want the performance (or cost) of the Demon, the Dodge might have just the thing. The Scat Pack 1320 takes some of the Demon's best features and puts them on the 6.4L naturally aspirated V8. The Challenger Scat Pack 1320 is named for the quarter-mile distance of a drag strip. So maybe it should be the Scat Pack 402.3 (metres) in Canada? Ok, maybe not.The 1320 is a drag-race special aimed at racers with a slightly more modest budget. It starts with the 392 cubic-inch (6.4L) Hemi V8 from the Scat Pack that generates 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque.
