2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Pricing Leaked

The upcoming SRT Challenger powered by Chrysler’s new 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 won’t be the most expensive muscle car on the market despite being the most powerful.

According to a leaked presentation slide leaked by AutoSpies, the car will start at $59,900, which makes it more expensive than the now out-of-production Shelby GT500 and the Camaro ZL1, but less expensive than the track-focused Camaro Z/28.KAwyFVdl

Dodge’s new tire melter will also run an NARA-certified 11.2-second quarter mile, although it isn’t clear if the company modified the car at all to make it handle well. Of the muscle cars the Detroit 3 are selling, the Challenger has historically been the least capable in cornering, but that doesn’t mean the same will be true of the newest SRT model. The base V8-powered Camaro and Mustang aren’t corner carvers either, but their more expensive variants are.

Then again, all of the Dodge promotional material so far is focused on two things: burnouts and being able to make it down a drag strip quickly. The material shown on the slide also seems like it discredits the previous assertion that the car will run a 10-second quarter mile made through a video Dodge released showing Gas Monkey Garage running the car down a strip.

  • Kvally

    Well, I prefer the Camaro….but I didn’t realize the Camaro trailed in all those stats in the picture. That sucks :(

  • Rickers

    I’d still rather have the Z/28. That thing would WHOOP the Hellcat around a track.

  • Kvally

    That is true. I wonder what time the Helicat could get on the Ring.

  • Rickers

    Probably like 9 minutes. LOL.

  • David Swieboda

    I’ll just take a supra or nsx and kill both on the track 😉

  • Kvally

    Z28 already beats the NSX and Supra ring times.

  • B-Series

    But will it beat the New NSX’s time? And the old NSX made like HALF the horsepower of the Z/28.

  • Kvally

    The new NSX? You mean the one that doesn’t exist yet? How would we know? As for the old…I would hope a car that costs $100k does well on the ring, even though it is bested by a Camaro for $25k less.

  • BBC

    Unless the tests are done on the same day, by the same driver in the same density altitude with the same track temp, then ‘Ring times are essentially meaningless.

  • BBC

    Who cares?

  • Kvally

    Most of us?

  • BBC

    The real question, can you give a reasoned explanation as to WHY you care.

  • Kvally

    Maybe we should be asking, WHY you care. Do you even comprehend what you post?

  • BBC

    We should be asking WHY do you care about a performance metric irrelevant to 99.9999% of cars sold I’m the US. I mean, that is question I would ask if your weren’t an obvious magazine racer and automotive ignoramous…

  • Kvally

    Because of us enjoy all aspects of the automotive industry, we are not running with blinders or armchairs. Maybe once you past the prepubescent stage of your life, you might fit in here.

  • BBC

    You enjoy “all aspects of the automotive industry” can clearly be translated into “I like to magazine race.”. Because those of us that ACTUALLY race and build cars like relevant performanxr data. For example, if I’m going to buy a Hellcat for road course I research how quickly it has been around a track I may actually go to, like Leguna or VIR. If I’m a drag racer I see how quickly it has been down a drag strip (and in what DA) and how well the car takes to mods and where aftermarket tuning is at with that platform. You, OTOH, are likely someone who can’t describe the stages of the Otto cycle without WikipediaWikipedia, are clearly someone who likes quotable ‘Ring times for no purpose other than magazine racing. Individuals such as yourself aren’t real car people but are car posers.

  • Kvally

    No…not just MY enjoyment, but the enjoyment from the majority of the automotive enthusiasts. Just because you apparently don’t qualify and a knowledgeable nor legitimate enthusiast doesn’t mean you should discount the rest of normal community. Most us don’t actually just “research”. We actually partake in the experiences and find out for ourselves what works best for us. Hands on, not just research, or being some armchair auto fanboy. This is real life we are talking here, not some fantasy like you are engaged in. While the rest of us are doing real time driving on courses like Road America and getting hands on experience along with research.

    But then again, maybe you are not fortunate enough to have been brought up building cars back when we have clevelands and windsors, or rochesters or holleys, or built late models for road courses, or spend time day to day with hands on experience.

    Most of us picture you hidden behind some laptop like some raging automotive fan wannabe getting all bent out of shape because someone on the internet caught you in your little charade. We don’t think any less of you, but we do feel sorry for you.

    But please, carry on. You continue to entertain us.

  • Kvally

    Many automotive enthusiasts.

  • BBC

    You’re confusing magazine racers; such as yourself, with automotive enthusiasts.

  • BBC

    who cares? you plan on shipping a hellcat over to germany to make some laps on the ‘ring. You guys fall for marketing…

  • Kvally

    You fail at discussion and car passion. We are just making conversation.

  • BBC

    You fail at coherent points yet you succeed at regurgitating marketing blurbs. Car passion does not correlate with stats parroted by Autoblog and Car and Driver which are only relevant to MBAs employed by the OEMs. Go drive the drive the and see if YOU like it, the brochure won’t impact that experience.

  • Kvally

    We have no idea what you are rambling on about. Maybe post back when you can construct a decent reply.

  • BBC

    It’s not my fault you are functionally illiterate.

  • Kvally

    did you come up with that all on your own?

  • BBC

    It’s just a basic observation.

  • Kvally

    I suppose basic is all you can muster up. That would explain the lack of basic intelligence in your posts.

  • BBC

    Says the guy using uncorrected ‘Ring times as a valid performance metric for cars sold and used almost exclusively in the US. Face the facts, lady, the power of irrelevant marketing has gotten the best of you.

  • Kvally

    The only one here using incorrect data or information is you. Not sure how you can dispute facts that we have available to us. Maybe you are just trolling the comment section here? That is the only reason we can think of for your incoherent posts.

  • BBC

    What facts? You mean unsanctioned ‘Ring lap times obtained on different days, in different Density Altitude, with different drivers? Those facts? The only FACT here is that you don’t know enough to form am valid opinion.

  • Kvally

    So now facts are no longer facts these days? I am amazed what the internet brings out. So now you have official declared recorded times, from different drivers, and different days under different weather conditions as non-factual.

    Check this out folks…you can’t make this stuff up. This BBC kid is now proclaiming facts are no longer facts. This is pure comedy gold.

  • BBC

    Basic is all I need to sum up your worthless, uninformed opinions.

  • Kvally

    So you have nothing. Glad you saved us the time.

  • BBC

    I have plenty, your “car passion” was summed up when you replied to “go drive the car and see if YOU like it” with “We have no idea what your are rambling on about”. I suppose if my sole source of car experience was from video games and Autoguide articles I may like ‘Ring times to, fortunately I’m a real car guy.

  • Kvally

    So just because you have experience with hot wheels and matchbox cars, you feel that you belong here with the big boys? The fact that you use “auto guide” as your source (most of us have hundreds, if not thousands of sources and real world experience) goes to show just how innate and obtuse you are.

  • BBC

    Where’s the big boys? You certainly can not be referring to yourself, an internet know-nothing quote ‘Ring times as though they were scientifically obtained. You need to do some research on these ‘Ring times, an actually racer knows what I mean when I say unsanctioned. You are not a car person, you are an arm- chair car person, and that much it obvious. Let me know when you start racing in the real world, setting up suspensions and building engines, then you’ll have an iota of respect. As of now you are nothing more than a PlayStation warrior.

  • Kvally

    You are as clueless as they get (though I must be somewhat clueless as I don’t know what a video game machine thing has to do with this?). I guess I have spent too much time in the car industry, racing, and building of cars that I may not comprehend what your point is there? Should I buy a playstation so that I am as good as you? I wouldn’t even find time to play games with you I am afraid. Too busy enjoying the automotive industry and partaking in it I am afraid. Good talk though.

  • BBC

    You don’t understand my points because you an automotive illiterate, plainly illustrated by the repeated ignorance of your statements. We can compare automotive accomplishments if you like.

  • Kvally

    Considering you don’t have any it would be a waste of our time.

  • BBC

    What’s the last engine you built? Last car? What have you yourself achieved, you know, beyond high scores in Gran Turismo. You expose yourself with your vehement ‘Ring time defense, and that’s the simple truth, chump.

  • Kvally

    No, no Maserati here, but I wouldn’t mind one. My son and I are currently building our second kit car, this one being an MK4 Roadster. Having worked at Road America in Wisconsin for the past 11 years, we have free access to testing it there too, which is nice.

    Not sure what the chump is for, but keep up the great communication. Insults are very becoming (and now consistent) with you.

  • BBC

    MK4 roadster kit from who? What did you use for engine and transmission? Engine management? I’ve built two Ford 4.6 4Vs that have been installed in Factory Five kit cars.

  • Felix James

    Now I’m getting one for sure!

  • Auto Motive

    News came out that only 1200 hellcats are going to be available for the 2015 model run. That’s ok with me since I won’t be buying until 2016 since I would be interested in checking out the next gen Camaro ZL1, Mustang GT500 and the Alfa Romeo 4C with a Ferrari engine choice. I see dealers adding $10-20k for the first ones and lets all LOL for the idiots that buy at that price. Remember those idiots buying the PT Cruiser, a $17k car for $5k over msrp. LOL for the suckers.

  • Slats

    I want one just to drive as my daily driver. Its nice to want!!!!! My 2012 R/T will have to do.
