of the 2019 Dodge Challenger. Base trim shown.
We've wished that the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon's fiery engine would be available in many vehicles, and for 2019, it's found a new home in the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Think of it as a mashup of the best Hellcat bits and the best Demon parts, bolted together in a car meant to tackle a road course instead of a drag strip.
For this Challenger, Dodge took the heart and lungs out of the Demon and bolted them right into the top Challenger SRT muscle car model with as little modification as possible, stuffing in that supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 engine and all of the wonderful bits that made the Demon so remarkable, like the charge cooler that operates off of the air-conditioning system.
Where the Demon was a one-trick muscle car pony meant for quarter-mile drag-strip duty only, the Hellcat Redeye is a far better, more usable, balanced everyday vehicle. Power is down a bit, however, while weight is up. How does that affect the Redeye's driving dynamics?
