Choosing between the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye is sort of like choosing your favourite child: everyone says they don’t have a favourite, but that just isn’t true. Let the crew at Great West Chrysler help you compare the two, and you can decide for yourself which of these two HEMI® SRT®-equipped American muscle cars you’d rather get behind the wheel of.
2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat
There are a number of Dodge Challenger models perfect for all budgets, but here at Great West Chrysler we like our wheels and our engines big, and the 20×8.5-inch SRT Low-Gloss Black performance wheels on the Hellcat satisfy at least one of those desires. The engine in the Hellcat is no slouch either; a 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® SRT® Hellcat V8 brings enough giddy-up and go that you’ll be leaving all the other cars on the road in your dust (including those with horses on their grille). 717 horses and 656 lb-ft of torque give the Hellcat plenty of forward momentum, while high-performance 4-wheel antilock disc brakes with red painted 6-piston Brembo® calipers ensure you’ve got more than enough stopping power. Add in a competition suspension with active damping, and you’ve got strong handling to go along with all that muscle.
2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye
While everything we wrote above is great, and the Challenger Hellcat packs more fun and horsepower than the average ‘pony car,’ our personal favourite is undoubtedly the Hellcat Redeye. Sure, it’s more expensive, but how can you put a price on pure unadulterated driving thrills? While a unique interior and badging helps set the Hellcat Redeye apart, the engine is what really makes the Redeye take flight. 25 major component upgrades over the High-Output 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® SRT® Hellcat V8 take you to an unfathomable 797 horsepower, and 707 lb-ft of torque. Do you need that much horsepower? Probably, yes. The SRT Power Chiller™ and After-Run chiller ensure that no matter how hard you push this beast of an engine, it’ll stay cool—just like you.
Again, most proud parents will tell you they love all their children equally. And while there’s nothing wrong with the Dodge Challenger Hellcat—it’s a helluva car—we’re of the opinion that bigger is better, and there’s no engine bigger or more powerful than in the 2019 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye. Whichever you choose, come by Edmonton’s Great West Chrysler and we’ll help get you behind the wheel of the legend that is the Dodge Challenger!
