Muscle Marches on with Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye

Shifts into action with a standard six-speed TREMEC manual transmission

FCA Media / June 28, 2018 / Auburn Hills, MI

Introduced for the 2015 model year, the Challenger Hellcat stunned the muscle car market through its powerful engine and impressive performance. Dodge took things to a new level with the Demon in 2017, when it introduced a series of segment-first features. For 2019, FCA launched a new model that bridges the gap between the impressive Hellcat and the absolutely evil Demon. Meet the Hellcat Redeye!

Headlining the spec sheet is an output figure rated at 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque, which, with the demise of the Demon, makes the Redeye the “most powerful production V-8,” according to Dodge.

Drivers will experience unrelenting performance with the standard six-speed TREMEC manual transmission.

Production kicks off this fall, with deliveries starting in Q4. Unlike the Demon, there will be no limits on production numbers for the Redeye.
