2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Review – No one sane ever said that Dodge Challenger Hellcat lacking in oomph. With 707 horsepower V8-powered of 6.2 litres, you will never be far from right foot twitch of life-changing experience (and possibly revoke the license). But, when it comes to handling well, that’s another story. Pressing the track at Hellcat can be very fun, but in the corners of the car was never like you call confidence inspiring. With the configuration of the new Widebody Challenger Hellcat, finally we are getting closer to competence.
2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Engine
Widebody share most of the contents of the Charger standard, but the Hellcat went to cosmetic surgeons the same Demon. 6.2-Liter V8 with supercharger Hellcat 2.4 liters per-rev, generate power 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, does not change. Emerging standard with manual transmission six acceleration, but our tester had the optional eight-speed automatic with steering wheel paddle shifters. This is 3.5 inches wider (see fender them!) Than the Hellcat standard, which allowed it to accommodate a wheel “Devil’s Rim” 20 times 11 inches. These share the divider before him with the Demon but retained the rear spoiler Hellcat. The widebody is also equipped with electronic power steering system drive modes to choose from.

This is just a little better than standard Hellcat, too, with better cornering grip, better acceleration, and better braking (although it has the same Race brake package with standard Hellcat).

Lateral grip increased by 0.04 G to 0.97 G on the skid.

2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Interior
We spent our time with 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody in the street field infield at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Sliding into the car, comfortable and convenient sitting position even though with a helmet on, and we had no trouble adjusting to the steering column and seat placement is ideal. Screen infotainment shows us setting our drive for the next few miles: transmission and suspension there in Track Mode, the rudder is set to Sport, with a set of traction to the Street. We turned on the car with the instructor on a chair next to the right, and exit from the pit lane.
The Hellcat V8 offers stirring snarl accompanied by roaring whine of the supercharger as we accelerate out into straight and into the first round. Rocketing shots made sharp, but manageable, which is very helpful when the subsiding of the long corner. The steering wheel is also progressive, with quite a lot to feel natural, but not so much that your arm clamp tired around the bend together – which is the car that was very surprising. As you can imagine, the wide tires make Hellcat Widebody very sticky, and quickly achieve a satisfying current flow when we passed the last bend and direct line back to the highway with Indy oval.
Throw into the throttle, we struck back in our seats while the engine snarls up to 6,200 rpm segment lines. The whole car sways with every shift. We have left the transmission in an automatic mode, which makes the change seemed the more jarring since it does not correspond to the physical input from us. However, the rapid changes of the teeth as well, and the car isn’t losing steam when transverse 140 mph (speedometer digital TFT screen is easy to read) before we run out of line and had to angle braked. As we were circling the track again-a little bit more aggressive this time-we are constantly looking for the car balanced, obedient, and stay really comfortable. A Chair that is sustained well it makes us to be in the right place around the bosom of us, and we find it hard to leave him (psychologically, not physically) when we finally stopped near a brick in the pit lane. Our sadness because of the brevity of the meeting we were second best with Challenger, however, will be soothed by jumping into the Durango SRT and, later that day, the Dodge Challenger Demon.
