The name alludes to two different engines: the most powerful V8 ever, the Hellcat, which is now available on the Dodge Challenger and Charger, and the legendary 426 Hemi Elephant V8 which was standard in Dodge muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s.
The 426-cubic-inch Hemi proven to be a reliable and durable powerplant for a wide range of vehicles, from muscle cars like the Charger and Challenger to commercial vehicles like Ram pickups and Jeep SUVs. The Hellcats engine is equipped with a 2.4-liter supercharger, 650 pound-feet of torque, and an electronically tuned rumble that is noticeably exciting.
With 807 horsepower, the 6.2L high-output Supercharged V8 is one of the fastest and most powerful engines to enter production this year. This Challenger is a road tyrant with to its 808-horsepower 6.2-liter Supercharged Hemi V8.
Another is the most powerful V8 ever manufactured by Mopar, Dodge’s performance division, which also developed the engine in the Challenger Hellcat and the Challenger Demon, with a total power output of 1,000 horsepower and a whopping 950 pound-feet of torque, right out of the box. The supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi found in the Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye Challenger, as well as an even hottest alternative found in the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, are the three most potent motors in Mopar history. The new Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye and Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, as well as the highest-horsepower halo of the range, the new 807-horsepower Challenger SRT Super Stock, are all powered by the same supercharged Hemi.
