2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat Mean-Mugs the Competition

2019 Dodge Charger

Fresh off last week's tease of the Challenger Hellcat's new "dual-snorkel" hood, Dodge revealed a bit of the 2019 Charger's new face and ... there's a hole in it. Usually it's rude to point out things like a hole in someone's face, but in this case, it's good news for everyone who likes fun cars that look awesome.

The hole is an air intake directly inspired by the air intakes Challenger Hellcat and Demon models have in place of foglights. Dodge says "high-performance" models of the Charger will receive an updated grille — but didn't specify which ones make the cut and which don't. The image has a Hellcat logo, so it's definitely at least the Charger Hellcat.

"Upgrades inside and out" beyond the intake are promised but also unspecified. Could that include a manual transmission for the Charger Hellcat? How about a drift mode? Or maybe build a rally-style version to challenge the Subaru Outback's off-road supremacy while making sure it has a 392 Hemi engine?

These all could be possible upgrades, but it more likely means nicer materials inside the cabin and upgraded multimedia and safety features. Those are good things! They're just not as much fun to talk about.
