Five-Point Inspection: 2015 Dodge Charger SRT 392

Five-Point Inspection: 2015 Dodge Charger SRT 392

Is the Charger SRT Hellcat Really Necessary?

For 2015 the Dodge Charger erupted onto the scene with a controversial new look that was quickly forgotten once the powertrain options were announced.

That’ll happen when a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 making 707 HP is sitting on the spec sheet.

Easily the most powerful full-size family sedan on the market today, there is another power-crazy Charger that has been forced into the shadows by the Hellcat: the SRT 392. With a large, meaty V8 of its own, the SRT 392 is no slouch and offers great performance at a lower price.

    Of course the Hellcat isn’t NECESSARY… it’s just awesome!!!

    I am not a big Charger fan but I will pick the SRT over the Hellcat. The reason is because there are not much difference between handling between the two. SRT makes more sense than the Hellcat IMO.

    What kind of IDIOT makes a living writing about cars and asks a question about whether a car with 707 HP is necessary? OF COURSE IT IS NECESSARY!
