The 2015 Dodge Challenger is a thing of beauty and power if we are to believe what Chrysler is saying about its latest vehicle.

Today, Chrysler unveiled the 2015 Dodge Challenger to the world. Not only do we get a look at the car itself, but Chrysler has also spilled the beans on what makes this the most powerful Challenger it has ever built.

First off, Chrysler says that the 2015 Dodge Challenger will comes in two flavors – the SRT and SRT with Hellcat engine. As you might expect with a name like Hellcat, the latter is equipped with a 600-plus horsepower engine. The regular SRT will be no slouch, but Chrysler says the SRT with Hellcat will come with the most advanced engine it’s ever built – 6.2 liter HEMI V-8.

“The new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is the ultimate performance muscle car,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO – Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “Dodge is the Mainstream Performance brand, and now combined with SRT, we are able to unleash a true GT car with an all-new driver-focused interior and the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission combined with the most powerful V-8 Chrysler has ever produced. The Challenger Hellcat has been released!”

      Can’t wait to see it being tested with the other auto-makers. Might have to wave some money at the local dealer and get my own test drive. Remember the Chevy commercial with Jeff Gordon disguised and taking the salesman for a lil’ jaunt…Ohh my god your an idiot……hahaha.
