This morning, Dodge announced that the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye will arrive for the 2019 model year with a whopping 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque, making this the most powerful production road car from an American automaker for 2019 – comfortably beating the Corvette ZR1 at just 755 horsepower. We have long-known that there was more Hellcat power coming for 2019, but at 797 horsepower, the Hellcat Redeye exceeds our expectations.

Still weighs half a ton more than the Vette with barely any more HP.

NEXT

1/10 would not smash into a crowd.

Is the Demon not being made for 2019?

But yea, it weighs a ton more than the ZR1, so not sure anyone plunking down the cash for one of those should be too worried.

If your hobbies include showering naked with old men and punching dashes in 3rd gear, a Terminator might be for you.

Dodge yet again not moving with the times. Everyone else has an EV market and hybrids. (Some quick some slow) to offset these gas drinking monsters.

Yet dodge is over here making less fuel efficient cars and heavier cars.

I read an article on CNN the other day that the Chrysler brand is in serious trouble and most likely will be gone from the market in the next few years.

Way to go Chrysler group!
