5 reasons to buy the 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat

1. Modern-day muscle

If you're searching for a modern-day muscle car with thunderous power under the hood, the 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is an obvious choice. This coupe, available in SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye trims, is born to run with a supercharged 6.2L HEMI® SRT V8 engine. As a result, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat shatters the track with 717 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque and runs a quarter-mile at 127 mph (according to the manufacturer, when new). The high-output Redeye delivers even more dominance with 797 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque, helping it achieve a top speed of 203 mph and a 10.8-second quarter-mile at 131 mph (according to the manufacturer, when new).

2. Comfortable ride

Muscle cars don't often pair straight-line speed and high horsepower with ride comfort, but the 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat does both well. The Hellcat models feature a standard adaptive suspension that glides over road imperfections with slick precision. This suspension system also includes different firmness settings, including Street Mode (sporty), Sport Mode (firm), and Track Mode (firmest max handling), to customize the Hellcat's performance.

3. Roomy cabin

In addition to the 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat's satisfying ride, you can expect interior comfort from the spacious cabin. With 42 inches of front-seat legroom and 33.1 inches in the rear row, you'll easily accommodate four adult passengers or three kids in the back seat of this big-bodied coupe. The Hellcat's cargo capacity is equally generous, with 16.2 inches of volume for sports equipment or luggage.

4. Contemporary tech

The 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a classic muscle car, but its in-cabin technologies are anything but old-fashioned. Anchoring the dash is an advanced Uconnect® 4C infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display and a six-speaker Alpine® audio system. In addition, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto capabilities provide seamless smartphone integration, while Bluetooth® connectivity makes hands-free calling effortless. Keyless Enter 'n Go with push-button start technology is also standard, allowing you to hop in the coupe and seize high speeds.

5. Available driver aids

The 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat offers an enticing array of available driver aids to customize your ride. Choosing a model with the Technology Group adds adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning, which are helpful for long commutes. A Driver Convenience Group, which features blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, is also available. Additionally, all models have a standard ParkSense® rear park assist system to simplify reverse moves in busy parking lots.
