Just when you thought that Dodge had completed the most powerful lineup ever, it announced the new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody. With large fender flares that are both intimidating and functional, the SRT Hellcat Widebody is more bold and powerful than ever. The SRT Hellcat Widebody also features new tires and rims that buyers have been begging for, offering more grip than a traditional Hellcat. Read more on this new addition to the Challenger lineup below!
The SRT Hellcat Widebody features new fender flares stolen from the design of the new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. These fenders increase the SRT Hellcat’s width by 3.5 inches. The Hellcat Widebody also features new 20 x 11-inch Devil’s Rim split-five spoke aluminum wheels with Pirelli P-Zero performance tires with extra grip and stick. The Hellcat Widebody also features standard electric power steering complete with selectable steering tuning for added grip and stronger acceleration and handling performance. These improvements make the SRT Hellcat Widebody even more powerful and capable than the traditional Hellcat. On a 1.7-mile track, the Widebody champions the traditional SRT Hellcat by 2 seconds/13 car lengths after just one lap. The Widebody can also chop .3 seconds off of the Hellcat’s ¼-mile time and .1 second off of its 0 to 60 acceleration time. With an SRT Hellcat Widebody, you can also reach a peak of 195 miles per hour.
The SRT Hellcat Widebody shares the same engine as the traditional SRT Hellcat: a monstrous 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8. It loads the SRT Hellcat Widebody with 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. This engine offers an advanced low-temperature circuit that features two coolant/air heat exchangers that work to keep air temperatures below 140 degrees Fahrenheit while still allowing air flow of up to 30,000 liters per minute during extreme conditions. Excluding that within the SRT Demon, this engine is the most powerful passenger-car engine available from Dodge. It’s also been rated one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines in 2015. The all-new electronic power steering system is unique and the first of its kind to be seen in a Hellcat. It improves performance in handling and acceleration, with steering becoming a breeze. Combined with SRT Drive Modes, a driver can manipulate traction, suspension, horsepower, steering, and transmission shift speeds.
The new Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody features an extensive list of standard equipment. In the driver-oriented cockpit, the SRT Hellcat Widebody offers world-class materials, a leather-trimmed, flat-bottom, heated SRT steering wheel, a new red Hellcat badge on the instrument panel, Laguna leather performance seats, and an 8.4-inch Uconnect. The Uconnect infotainment system is well loved, offering an 8.4-inch touchscreen interface, navigation, SRT performance pages, access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and more.
