Dodge releases their 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat, which they claim to be the world's most powerful production sedan

US.-based carmaker Dodge had taken the wraps off the 2015 version of their Charger SRT Hellcat sedan which comes fitted with a horsepower engine, identical to that fitted in their Challenger SRT Hellcat two-door coupe which they released just a few weeks ago.

Dodge showed off their Charger SRT Hellcat sedan at a special reception held in Detroit’s Vinsetta Garage to an invited audience of media reviewers.

According to a spokesperson for Dodge, the Charger SRT Hellcat sedan “is a type of car which most of the world’s top manufacturers would never have brought to market”, but the company’s viewpoint is that sometimes you need to build a car that redefines practicality.

According to the performance statistics released by Dodge, the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat sedan immediately assumes the mantle of being the most powerful sedan car in the world, rapidly overtaking BMW’s M5’ which only provides 560 horsepower, the Audi RS6 with the same, while Mercedes’ E63’ life well behind with 550 horsepower.

The 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat sedan will also come fitted with the same  eight-speed transmission as its coupe cousin the Challenger as well as the same beefed-up suspension, 15.4-inch brake discs and six piston Brembo clampers.

Other impressive figures coming out on the new Charger SRT Hellcat is that it will have a top speed of 204 mph, capable of reaching 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and covering its first quarter of a mile within 11-seconds. Like the Hellcat version of the Challenger, the Charger provides a driver with the option of two keys, the first to unlock all of that 707 hp, with the other to restrain it just a little.

The Charger will be even faster than the Challenger, whose top speed has been put down to 199 mph, despite the fact that the Charger weighs in at 4,560 pounds, 100 pounds more than the Challenger.

Despite all that power, the Charger still carries a lot of the characteristics of the typical family sedan, with only hood scoops, heat extractors, low profile 20 inch “Slingshot” wheels fitted both front and back, and its own custom designed logos differentiating the Hellcat from the standard range of Charger sedans.

As far as the interior is concerned, the 2015 Charger Hellcat comes with with all of the standard-setting as well as some tech facilities such as customizable performance settings, g-meter all of them conveniently placed on on the central screen the track apps.

Unlike a number of other sports orientated sedans, Dodge’s 2015 Charger Hellcat backseat is not at all cramped coming with more than enough legroom for the tallest people.

The 2015 Charger Hellcat is scheduled to head the showrooms during the first quarter of next year, although Dodge is still remaining tight lipped on their asking price.
