Why is the Dodge Challenger called Hellcat

The new Dodge Hellcat is one of the most talked-about vehicles in the world. From its impressive power and speed to the streamlined, throwback stylings, the Hellcat is surely an exciting vehicle. But where on Earth did the name come from? There are many, many people wondering why is the Dodge Challenger called Hellcat, and we’re here to answer that question for you.

Apparently, the Hellcat was a behind-the-scenes nickname used by Dodge manufacturers and executives that was never really supposed to leave the warehouse. Once the media and rest of the public caught wind of the descriptive, emotion-evoking nickname, all hopes of reeling the catchy name back in were gone.

Lucky for all speed demons, the Hellcat is expected to be available later this year for close to $60,000. The 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat reaches top speeds of 320 kph and provides 707 horsepower. The Hellcat is the perfect vehicle to impress all of your friends and family, if you’re looking to do that sort of thing.

Another option for those who love the look of the Hellcat but don’t love the price tag is to purchase a 2015 Dodge Challenger (non-Hellcat model). The 2015 Challenger looks nearly identical to the Hellcat and produces more than 450 horsepower, which is still pretty powerful in our books. It also can reach top speeds of more than 289 kph. The 2015 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Challenger Hellcat are vehicles that are meant to impress those around you.

The awesome thing about the Challenger, any model of the Challenger in fact, is that it is chock full of technology. This car may look like it’s from the 1970s, but it acts like a car of the future. http://www.greatwestchrysler.com/2014-dodge-charger-challenger-trade-in
