The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Is A 707 HP Four-Door Land Missile For The Fans

The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Is A 707 HP Four-Door Land Missile For The Fans
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

Most know that when we talk about car companies hopping on trends like autonomy, electrification, and efficiency, we’re not really talking about Dodge. Dodge, instead, has a lineup full of dinosaurs that get a thorough polishing, more power and maybe a new bow every year, and we eat it up . Every year. Somehow, it works.

The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Is Totally Coming

The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Is Totally Coming

Dodge regularly gives its muscle cars both cosmetic and mechanical makeovers on top of their same, ancient roots, and we eat it up. We really do. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Thus, Dodge keeps pumping new ideas out, like a potential wide-body version of its 707-horsepower Charger SRT Hellcat.

Stop trying to hide it. You know you haven’t been this excited for fender flares since, well,...

There's Now a Bulletproof Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat With All-Wheel Drive 

There's Now a Bulletproof Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat With All-Wheel Drive 

Dodge Hellcats send their 700-plus horsepower to the rear wheels, like muscle cars do. That takes away some traction and makes the cars hard to tame —part of their angry charm. But there’s a new Hellcat at the police station in town, and it’s sending power to the ground through all four wheels.

Oh, and it’s bulletproof. That too.

Despite a Georgia sheriff getting into trouble for dropping...

Georgia Sheriff Ends Up Using Taxpayer Money for Hellcat Purchase Deemed Too ‘Extravagant’ for Federal Funds

Georgia Sheriff Ends Up Using Taxpayer Money for Hellcat Purchase Deemed Too ‘Extravagant’ for Federal Funds

The U.S. Department of Justice wasn’t thrilled that a Georgia sheriff bought a 707-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat with federal funds, demanding he reimburse the nearly $70,000 he spent. The DOJ got its money back, but local outlets report that the sheriff’s department just used county tax dollars on it instead.

The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department spent $69,258 on the car back in...

The Department of Justice Is Mad at a Georgia Sheriff for Spending $70,000 on a Dodge Charger Hellcat

The Department of Justice Is Mad at a Georgia Sheriff for Spending $70,000 on a Dodge Charger Hellcat

The U.S. Department of Justice is demanding Georgia Sheriff Butch Conway reimburse $70,000 for his purchase of a 707 horsepower Dodge Charger Hellcat, which has been deemed too “extravagant” of a purchase.

Sheriff Conway’s office paid $69,258 for the Hellcat back in April. The purchase was made with asset forfeiture funds and was initially approved by the Department of Justice under its...

Forget The Kids And Get Yourself A 707 HP Dodge Hellcat For The Price Of A Minivan

Forget The Kids And Get Yourself A 707 HP Dodge Hellcat For The Price Of A Minivan

Now that Dodge is set to launch updated and faster versions of the Challenger and Charger Hellcat , you may not realize that you can score a 707 horsepower monster for less than a loaded minivan.

Remember back in 2015 when the Challenger and Charger Hellcats were one of the most hyped cars on the market? Those were good times, my friends. Well, the country is different now and since it’s hard...

The 2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat Gets Some Cool Features From The Demon

The 2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat Gets Some Cool Features From The Demon

The street-legal dragster of a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon may be dead, but its tricks sure aren’t. The 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is here, with the same 707 horsepower as it had before but some new features inspired by the Demon. It also comes with the option of a satin-black hood, for looks.

The 2019 Charger Hellcat isn’t a drastic change in looks from the 2018 model year, as we could...

The Time A German Car Mag Handed A Charger Hellcat To American Drifters

The Time A German Car Mag Handed A Charger Hellcat To American Drifters

Here’s the story of how a couple of punk American drifters got to roast the tires of a brand new Charger Hellcat, thanks to one German journalist and not the explicit consent of Dodge itself.

Everything starts with a little race track in New Jersey: Raceway Park in Englishtown. You’ve seen the track before here on Jalopnik and on AutoBlog, along with Club Loose. They’re the tatted up,...

Dodge Charger Hellcat Says Screw Your Polar Vortex

Dodge Charger Hellcat Says Screw Your Polar Vortex

In case you haven’t heard, a large swath of the country is engulfed in a massive cold front called the Polar Vortex. The appropriate solution to the bitter cold and snow is to take a 707 horsepower Dodge Charger Hellcat and go hooning.

YouTuber Sinister Life apparently daily drives a Charger Hellcat, and while most sane people would probably not get such a powerful machine involved with even a...

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration filed a recall earlier this month, saying that approximately 1,200 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger Hellcat models produced between Feb. 6, 2017 and May 30, 2017 are being recalled for engine oil problems. From the...

There Is Already A Dodge Hellcat Mixtape

There Is Already A Dodge Hellcat Mixtape

The Dodge Hellcat twins were pretty much guaranteed rap star status before they ever hit the showrooms, what with them being new and expensive and fast and American. No surprise that Young Dro already has a mixtape out Hell Cat that is a tribute to the cars.

Anyone who has driven in the South will know that there’s a strong support of anything big, American, and V8-powered down there,...

If You Haven't Received Your 2015 Hellcat Yet, Your Order Was Cancelled

If You Haven't Received Your 2015 Hellcat Yet, Your Order Was Cancelled

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Charger Hellcat twins are wildly popular. So popular, in fact, that Dodge is more than doubling production to meet all the demand for 2016 models. But that still isn’t enough, so to get the jump on 2016 production, 2015 production is ending. Meaning if you ordered a 2015 car, you’re effectively screwed.

But if you’re one of the 900 or so people who ordered a...

This Viper VS. Hellcat VS. Hellcat Tug-Of-War Burnout Is More 'Murica Than You Can Handle

On this day of our Dodge 7/07, we gather here today to celebrate all 707 horsepower of the mighty Hellcat engine along with its V10 friend in the Viper. Let us turn to the book of Toby, verse Keith: “This burnout shall be brought to you courtesy of the red, white and blue.” Amen.

This footage is from August 2015 at the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan, long before the lot...

That Story About A 180 MPH Hellcat Test Drive Is Totally Fake

That Story About A 180 MPH Hellcat Test Drive Is Totally Fake

Here’s a headline guaranteed to grab The Clicks: “Florida Man Arrested After 180 MPH Hellcat Test Drive.” And while this wouldn’t really be out of character for Florida Man, America’s last hero, this story is just some made up internet bullshit.

A story has been making the rounds about a salesperson at a Florida car dealer who went out on a Charger Hellcat test drive and got that bad boy all...

How I Survived A Dodge Charger Hellcat On A Wet Track

How I Survived A Dodge Charger Hellcat On A Wet Track

Let’s say you show up to a track for some fun times in your hot hatchback. And then, just hypothetically, a friend randomly shows up there with his new toy: a 2017 Dodge Charger Hellcat . He tosses you the keys and says “have fun, buddy.” But there’s a catch—it’s pretty wet out there.

What do you do?

I found myself in this position recently, and what do you think I’d say to that? “Um, thanks, my...
