Dodge’s new supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine dubbed the Hellcat found its first home under the hood of the 2015 Challenger, and the engine is getting ready to move into the 2015 Charger.
New spy photos have just rolled in showing a camouflaged Dodge Charger testing on city streets, almost certainly sporting the Hellcat engine. You can see the upper portion of the grille has been fit with honeycomb inserts and looks very similar to the Challenger Hellcat’s grille design, deleting the typical crosshair style.
Like the grille, the tires on this test car are identical to those found on the high-power Challenger, a set of Pirelli P-Zeros size 275/40/20. A hood scoop, slotted brake rotors, Brembo calipers on the rear, a trunk lid spoiler and larger exhaust tips are also all sure signs that this the Hellcat Charger.
And if all that isn’t enough proof, Dodge has filed for official SAE J1349 certified power engine data for the 2015 Dodge Charger 6.2-liter supercharged SRT model.
Power numbers are not likely to change for this car, with the supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat sporting 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, mated to either an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.
Expect the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat to be revealed this coming October.
The administration team of ChallengerTalk.com is excited to announce one of our own will be testing the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat July 22, 2014. We invite all those who have an interest in the Hellcat to post questions in this thread - http://www.challengertalk.com/forums...ellcat-232210/.
Used cars, just like new ones can be financed, but the process can be more complicated. Here’s what you need to know if you’re planning on buying a used car with borrowed money.
There are two main ways to finance a used car. There’s the robust way, and the easy way. We’ll start with the former, which involves getting a loan from the bank. Start by getting your credit history and score which is important for lenders to determine the rates and terms available for you. There are three major national credit bureaus for the U.S.: EquiFax, Experian and TransUnion. Call 1-877-322-8228 to request a free credit report. If your credit score is 680 or above, you’re considered a prime borrower and will get access to the best rates available.
Now that you have your credit report and score, you can contact banks and credit unions to see what rates and terms are available when it comes to a used car loan. For cars older than ten years, most lenders will offer shorter terms. Different lenders may have other requirements, like a maximum age, mileage or that the car comes from a franchised dealer. Very few will allow you to buy a salvage titled car. Additionally, used car loans tend to have higher interest rates than what you can find at a dealership when buying a new car so don’t expect zero percent financing when it comes to buying a used car.
After researching the best rates and terms you should get a pre-approval for the loan.
Another option is to use a credit union, they may have better interest rates or offer to lend you more money. Of course, you need to be a member although that shouldn’t discourage you because membership isn’t necessarily difficult to gain. With your pre-approval in hand, it’s time to head to the dealership or seller.
