Dodge prices 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat at $63,995

A pony car or a muscle car? The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat easily qualifies for the latter thanks to supercharged 6.2-litre

V8 that makes a shocking 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque! Or maybe the term “supercar” fits the description more accurately.

Years ago performance car enthusiasts would’ve needed to pay a tuning specialist tens of thousands for an engine that could muster such performance, let alone a car that could handle such output from zero to highway speeds and back down to standstill again, but now all of this can be yours straight from the factory with a warranty no less. And the best news? A brand new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will only set you back a mere $63,995 plus freight in Canada.

This puts Dodge’s new muscle car in the same ballpark as the 662-horsepower 2014

Mustang Shelby GT500, which currently can be had for $61,699, plus freight. Chevy’s answer to this horsepower war is the $54,775 2014 Camaro ZL1, although at “only” 580 horsepower it’s clearly outclassed by both the FoMoCo and Mopar alternatives. Just the same, the track-tuned Z/28 might give both a run for their money on a racecourse.

The blue-oval and bowtie models are old news, however, whereas the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is all the rage. Along with the base price just released, expect more detail on standard and optional features soon.
