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.

I really hope they define the charger/ challenger by offering awd in this new beast of a charger! As the challenger will most likely be lighter and a 2 door muscle car. So by adding the AWD to the hellcat charger along with the other goodies from the new hellcat brand should open up its own market that most of us have only been dreaming about.

Dream on Dreamer. :)

It will be RWD only as they don't have an AWD drivetrain that can handle that kind of HP and torque and they aren't going to invest in developing one. Also part of the reason the Hellcat isn't going to appear in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.

MY GOD! SRT has done it! 204 miles per hour, 3.7 0 to 60. 60k price! Slightly faster then the challenger hellcat. No limit on how many will be produced. That's game changing. Proud day for charger lovers!
