Dodge has revamped their Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat for the 2019 edition, complete with striking new twin blue race stripes. The latest news comes during SEMA week in Las Vegas.
The latest addition to the 2019 Dodge four-door muscle car includes all-new racing stripes and the most cutting edge in automotive technology, first introduced with the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. New exterior aesthetic options on the SRT Hellcat and R/T models help this Dodge muscle car stand out like never before.
“The Dodge Charger continues its run as the sales leader in the large car segment for the fifth year in a row. And as the aftermarket customization business continues to balloon, these new stripe options give Charger buyers the opportunity to make what is already the only four-door muscle car in the market even more unique, and to do it straight from the factory,” said Steve Beahm, head of passenger cars at FCA North America.
Each year, many vendors and automotive companies introduce the latest concepts, vehicles and special edition vehicles at the SEMA Show. Dodge is joining the party with three new Charger SRT Hellcat models, each with three unique dual-center stripe colors: Blue, Red, and Silver. These racing stripes go from the front and rear fascias, over the roof and deck lid, and are made to work with the Charger’s signature NACA duct-hood vent. Those new Hellcat stripes aren’t the only stripes offered, as the R/T and R/T Scat Pack are also getting stripes that were previously available solely for other trim models. For the first time ever, the Dual-Carbon stripes will be an addition for non-supercharged Charger trims for just $995. (That is the same price point for the Hellcat stripes).
As for the latest tech upgrades for higher-end Charger trims? Line-lock and launch assist were first introduced in the special SRT Demon, designed to help launch drivers on a drag strip, were both added. With new dual air inlets that mirror those on the SRT Demon, torque reserve and the patent after-run chiller have also been added to the new 2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat. The R/T and R/T Scat Pack will also gain launch control as well. The entry Charger lineup just became that much better to own and drive with all these upgrades.
