One thing that gives away the Dodge Challenger is its unique headlights and probably its hood scoop. Fortunately, for customers, the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will make the hood scoop feature even more prominent by adding two nostrils instead of one. The teaser images accompanying a press release by Dodge were released on Wednesday showcasing the new change.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, much like its sibling, the Challenger SRT Demon, is built for the kill on a drag strip. The car looks apart, by having a mean looking front fascia. The inspiration behind the amelioration is the Mopar design themes that Dodge was using to design some of its muscle cars in the 60s and 70s. The nostrils are not just for show, they are fully functional and provide tons of air for intake.
Dodge did not release details about the engine, except that it will be supercharged like the previous year’s model. It is likely that the new model would borrow the 6.2-liter V-8 from the 2018 Hellcat. It is understandable since it’s built specifically to dominate the drag strip. Further details about the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat shall be revealed as the vehicle formally unveils this summer. And since the Demon is not getting a renewal, it is hoped the Hellcat will get enough power to possibly come close if not trump the Demon.
