5 reasons to buy the 2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat

1. Powerful engine options

If you're looking for a fun car with a powerful engine, the 2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat gives you a choice. The SRT Hellcat model is powered by a Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® SRT® V8 engine that delivers 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque. If, for some reason, that's not enough, check out the SRT Hellcat Redeye model, which houses a high-output version of the same engine, delivering 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque.

While CarMax doesn't sell the 2023 Hellcat models, you might want to check out these similar vehicles: Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, and Ford Mustang.

2. Astonishing performance

Those big numbers translate into a lot of delicious noise as well as thrilling on-road performance. The 2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a muscle car through and through. On SRT Hellcat models, you have the option of a manual transmission if you like to row your own gears but the Redeye version is only available with the eight-speed automatic transmission. In terms of what that means at the track, the SRT Hellcat clocks the quarter-mile at 127 mph, which is pretty impressive. Combined with standard Brembo® brakes and an engine cooling system, this is a car built for performance.

3. Retro design

This is a modern muscle car with all the bells and whistles you'd expect but it stays true to its retro design heritage. The projector headlamps with quad-halo LED surrounds are a throwback to classic Challengers and the tail lamps embody an old-school, split design while crisp LEDs give it a contemporary twist. This is the kind of car you'll love to look back at in the parking lot.

4. Attention to detail

There's so much great attention to detail throughout the 2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, especially when you take into account some of the options packages. The Hellcat Redeye Jailbreak has available carbon fiber details throughout the interior alongside a stitched instrument panel. For a real premium feel, look out for the available Laguna leather seating that comes embossed with the Hellcat logo.

5. Packed feature list

The 2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is more than just style, it's full of convenience and entertainment features too. You'll get Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto connectivity as standard and all Hellcat models feature a premium sound system but there's the option to upgrade to a crisp Harmon Kardon® audio system too. This means that on the days when you're taking it easy or moving through city traffic, you can enjoy your music or podcasts before turning everything down to listen to the engine roar once you reach the open road.
