New Upgrades Lead Revamped Dodge Charger Performance Lineup for 2019


2018 Dodge Charger Super Scat Pack

Windsor, Ontario – Dodge//SRT continues to run at full throttle in the North American large sedan segment, revamping the entire Charger lineup for 2019. As North America’s only four-door muscle car and the sales leader in the segment five years running, Dodge continues to charge ahead of its competition with upgrades both inside and out.

New for 2019, Dodge is repositioning the Charger lineup into six distinct, attitude-infused models that offer a range of performance and powertrain options for every modern muscle car customer. The lineup ranges from the 707-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world – to the efficient V-6 power of the new Charger GT RWD performance model and the all-wheel-drive capability of the new SXT AWD model.  The 2019 Charger SRT Hellcat remains the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world with the supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI® SRT Hellcat V-8 that delivers 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to the quick-shifting TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

New for 2019, the Charger SRT Hellcat features a new performance grille with dual inlets that feed cooler, outside air into the engine compartment. Bolstering the performance is the addition of four race-inspired technologies that come standard on Hellcat, including:  Launch Assist, which uses wheel speed sensors to watch for driveline-damaging wheel hop at launch and, in milliseconds, modifies the engine torque to regain full grip,  Line lock, which engages the front brakes to hold the Charger SRT Hellcat stationary but leaves the rear wheels free for a burnout to heat up and clean the rear tires,  After-Run Chiller, which keeps cooling the supercharger/charge air cooler after the engine is shut off,  Torque Reserve, which closes a bypass valve to prefill the supercharger, and manages fuel flow and spark advance to balance engine rpm and torque, generates a reserve of torque that is delivered upon acceleration from a standing stop

New instrument panel badging, a Satin Black painted hood option, available Brass Monkey 20-inch forged wheels and an Alcantara interior package, which includes seats and steering wheel, are also new to Charger SRT Hellcat for the 2019 model year.

The 2019 Dodge Charger Scat Pack 392 is the most muscle for the dollar, powered by the naturally aspirated 6.4-litre HEMI V-8, it delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Dealer orders for the 2019 Dodge Charger open in late June 2018, and vehicles are scheduled to arrive in Dodge dealerships in the third quarter of 2018.   Charger R/T is powered by the iconic 5.7-litre HEMI V-8, rated at 370 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque and mated to the standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
