Dodge Dadeland SRT Hellcat

Dodge Dadeland has a variety of new models to choose from, but for those who want to purchase a 2015 Challenger there is no better option than Kendall. Not only do we keep a large selection of Challenger’s on hand, including the popular Hellcat model, but our prices are among the best in the area.

Why Choose the Hellcat?

When it comes to muscle cars with power and speed, you don’t have to look any further than the Challenger SRT Hellcat, complete with a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI engine.

As powerful as that sounds, you need to get behind the wheel to realize just what it can do for you. Consider this: the engine is capable of achieving 707 hp and a quarter mile time of 10.8 seconds. You might as well be driving a racecar!

What about the price? For performance like this, many believe the Hellcat will set them back close to $100k, however, this is not the case. Dodge has priced this model starting at $59,995, which is a bargain for how much power you get in return.

Mustang GT500

The Ford Mustang GT500 has plenty of power under the hood, thanks to a 5.8L supercharged aluminum-block V8 that puts out 662 hp.

Yes, this vehicle is fast. Yes, this vehicle can “get up and go” in a hurry, thanks to its 631 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm, but when compared to the Hellcat, it comes up short. It simply doesn’t have the same level of speed and power as the Hellcat.

Camaro ZL1/Z28

Chevrolet has been hanging its hat on the Camaro for many years. The ZL1 and Z28 are great examples of American muscle cars, but much the same as the Mustang, it cannot compete head to head with the Hellcat in terms of power and performance.

The ZL1, for example, features an all-aluminum 6.2L supercharged engine that delivers 580 hp and 556 lb.-ft. of torque. The performance of this engine is superior to most vehicles on the road, just not the Hellcat, coming up more than 120 hp short.

When it comes to American muscle, no car can outperform the Challenger SRT Hellcat.
