The 2018 Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody is Dodge’s final release in its powerful Hellcat lineup.
The Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody answers the call from fans who want a more aggressive stance with more grip.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody will be available 15 exterior colors: B5 Blue (late availability), Billet Silver, Destroyer Grey, F8 Green (late availability), Go Mango, Granite Crystal, IndiGo Blue (late availability), Maximum Steel, Octane Red, Pitch Black, Plum Crazy (late availability), Redline Tri-Coat, TorRed, White Knuckle and Yellow Jacket.
The Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody sports a frame 3.5 inches wider than its Challenger SRT Demon cousin release late last year. And the track capable whip boasts a monster 6.2 liter HEMI Hellcat V8 with 707 horsepower. Track time with the Challenger Widebody is also lowered sharply from the factory Hellcat by about 2 seconds or 13 car lengths. 0-62 mph acceleration has been decreased from the standard Hellcat (3.5 sec) by .1 second. The whip also sports a top speed of 195 mph.
With is wider more beastly stance the SRT Hellcat Widebody features dope design features like 20 inch Devils Run five-spoke aluminum wheels and Pirelli P-Zero tires with a new tread pattern, quad projector headlamps with a unique lamp design, new air catcher headlamps, and revised grille with Hellcat fender badges.
Also cool are the many performance-enhancing design perks like the power bulge aluminum hood with center intake and dual heat extractors, the front spitter, rear spoiler, and six-piston front calipers with its Brembo brake system.
The cockpit of the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody is a perfect blend of performance-oriented design and advanced execution with high-stakes comfort and dynamic technology. Standard SRT Laguna leather performance seats bear the SRT Hellcat logo. A SRT performance leather-wrapped flat-bottom heated steering wheel includes controls for driver-focused instrument panel with red Hellcat instrument panel badge and 200-mph speedometer.
SRT Performance Pages are accessible through the latest 8.4-inch touchscreen display media center with standard Uconnect 4C NAV system.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody is powered by the 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8 with 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. torque and can be paired to either the Tremec six-speed manual or TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
The proven Hellcat HEMI engine features additional cooling measures including a low-temperature circuit with two air/coolant heat exchangers integrated into the supercharger housing. This setup is designed to keep air temperatures below 140 degrees Fahrenheit, under extreme ambient conditions, while enabling air flow of up to 30,000 liters per minute.
So effective is this feature that engine power will not be de-rated due to cooling demands after 20 minutes of hard driving on a road course at an ambient temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
Before the new SRT Demon V-8 engine was introduced, the supercharged Hellcat HEMI V-8 was the most powerful passenger-car engine ever produced by FCA US, which made the Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat models the most powerful and fastest coupe and sedan ever.
