Dodge continues to aspire to create a brave and muscular image of the car for the brand, and that is, more or less, exactly what happened today. That is one of the four remaining American FCA divisions, as opposed to low-volume Chrysler, still successfully driving 446,994 vehicles in the US during 2017. However, Dodge’s total sales figure in the US has continued to decline since 2013 when it was marketed as 605,243 cars. In addition, since the Ram brand was released from Dodge after 2007, total sales were practically halved. That year, Dodge had a total of 1,057,646 vehicles under its belt, including what later became a line of Dodge Ram pickup trucks. Fast forward for about a decade, and the Dodge division faces an uncertain future. So, what exactly does the Dodge 2019 lineup have for us?
The upcoming Dodge model for 2019 consists of what is arguably the most outdated lineup in the industry today. The latest Dodge cars (seventh generation chargers) will come to 2011, while most of them track their origins until the late 2000s. Needless to say, most of the Dodge vehicles go far past their expiration dates, and some will be updated the earliest on MY 2020 or 2021. However, that doesn’t help much in the Dodge ranks in 2019, which are mostly soldiers without major updates. This is how Dodge selection was formed – without the spinning Ram division and Ram 1500 and 2,500 full-size Ram trucks, of course, let’s discuss this article.
2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye
And shake them do! Even though is of the type bent down, Dodge managed to make a new version that was almost as strong as Challenger SRT Hellcat which boasted, which could be considered even a more ridiculous name. Enter 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye – a 797 horsepower animal, which literally represents a cross between Hellcat and is of the type. Hellcat engine itself sports a number of is of the type parts which allow it to issue 80 additional horses. In detail, the 6.2L SRT supercharged SRT Hellcat gets a 2.7L is of the type supercharger with increases of up to 14.5 psi, high-strength pistons and connecting rods, twin-stage twin fuel pumps, another valvetrain, and fuel conveyance framework, and the sky is the limit from there. All this allows the new Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye to also produce more torque (707 pounds-foot) and redline at 6,500 rpm which is 300 rpm more than the standard Hellcat. You will need an optional 8-speed TorqueFlite 8HP90 transmission to unlock its full potential.
A new car, Dodge Challenger Redeye SRT Hellcat will be available in wide and wide configurations. The former is equipped with Pirelli P-Zero 305s which allows it to accelerate from stop to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and do a quarter-mile in 10.8 seconds at 131 mph. The regular model, on the other hand, comes with 275 narrower tires which drive a quarter-mile to 11s low. Considering the problems commonly shown by Hellcats with narrow tires, and 80 hp and 51 lb-ft less, widebody might be the way to go here. Especially if row-to-line racing is something that makes you proud. And don’t forget the new dual-snorkel hood that comes with every new SRT Hellcat model and throws us back into the era of the powerful Mopars’ 70s. Plus, it will give Ford Mustang Bullit new money.
2019 Dodge Challenger
Although the name Challenger first appeared in 1959 in the special edition of Dodge Challenger Coronet Silver, the actual pony car only made its debut in late 1969. It still made it the second oldest Dodge nameplate available today after the Charger mentioned earlier. The FCA currently maintains U.S. sales. at a stable level of around 65,000 units per year even though in 2008 the Challenger supported. In fact, Dodge Challenger currently records nearly three times the initial sales, which amounted to 25,852 in 2009 (the first full year for the third-generation Dodge Challenger). Like a 4 door brother, Dodge Challenger isn’t ready for a full makeover first. At least, according to the FCA. Instead, they are preparing a muscle car for a minor frontal fascia revision which will serve one or two more years before finally making the long-awaited transition.
Again, like Dodge Charger, the line of 2 door notchback engine remains unchanged. Reducing 808 to 840 incredible horsepower, 6.2L supercharged Dodge type V8 mill which is exclusively a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT business affair. Although is of the type is a thing of the past, 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat remains intact. This continues with 717 horsepower that is almost as ridiculous and the 656 pound-foot round, belonging to a supercharged 6.2 liter SRT Hellcat factory. As you might notice, Hellcat’s ranking rose 10 hp and 6 lb-ft compared to previous years. The remaining trio of engine available with Dodge Chargers also come along, with the only difference being that Dodge Challenger comes in a wider range of trim options. There were 15 of them for MY 2018, and even though some types mentioned above were not carried over to 2019, Dodge still might shake things up by adding one or two new options.
2019 Dodge Charger
As just mentioned above, the iconic Dodge Charger nameplate is actually a completely redesigned Dodge vehicle. Like the rest of Dodge’s product line, LD Power Charger is also racing to make a complete overhaul that won’t yet come in 2019. However, with the last substantial refresher since MY 2015, the Mopar icon must exercise at least some minor updates so that Dodge can maintain US total sales of around 90,000 units. By coincidence, that is what the Mopar children are preparing when the 2019 Dodge Charge is ready to wear the new frontal fascia he will share with the 2 door sibling Dodge Challenger. The display of a more streamlined new grille has been confirmed for the popular Dodge Charger Hellcat, while other 4-door sedans may not benefit from updates at all. Waiting for a full decade for a complete makeover will be in vain, though, the next-generation Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger is set to complete themselves on the new platform found at Maserati Ghibli.
The powertrain lineup is being carried away as a whole. With that in mind, base Dodge Charger will continue with their 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine which is capable of producing 292 or 300 horsepower depending on the package chosen. Raise R / T and Daytona trims and you’ll get a 5.7L V8 Hemi with 370 ponies. The Scat R / T package and 392 models, on the other hand, received 392 cu in a 6.4L increase in the V8 Hemi that pushed 485 horsepower ratings with 475 pound-foot torque to be thrown too. Finally, at the top of the beloved and feared range of Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat that stirs as much as 707 hp and 650 lb-ft twist thanks to the Hemi 6.2L V8 supercharged from an engine. Even though it does not offer substantial powertrain updates, the 2019 Dodge Charger may eventually be slightly reduced, making it more fuel-efficient in the process.
