New Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat Wide­body com­pletes Dodge’s strong­est mus­cle car lineup ever

Arab News - - CORPORATE PR -

The suc­cess of the Dodge range across the Mid­dle East con­tin­ues, thanks in par­tic­u­lar to the pop­u­lar­ity of the Charger and Chal­lenger mod­els.

The lat­est of these, the new 2018 Dodge Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat Wide­body — now avail­able in Dodge show­rooms across the Mid­dle East — com­pletes the brand’s strong­est Dodge mus­cle car lineup ever.

“The Dodge en­gi­neer­ing and de­sign teams, put a lot of ef­fort into mak­ing the new SRT De­mon the world’s fastest quar­ter-mile pro­duc­tion car, and have lever­aged that know-how in cre­at­ing the Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat Wide­body, which of­fers im­proved per­for­mance on the street along with a bolder, more ag­gres­sive new look,” a press re­lease said.

The Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat Wide­body model fea­tures the same fender flares first shown on the SRT De­mon. These wider fender flares add 3.5 inches to the SRT Hell­cat’s over­all width, cov­er­ing the 20 x 11-inch “Devil’s Rim” split-five spoke alu­minum wheels, which ride on wider 305/35ZR20 Pirelli P-Zero tires.

An elec­tric power steer­ing (EPS) sys­tem with SRT Drive Modes adds se­lectable steer­ing tun­ing for the first time on a Hell­cat model. In ad­di­tion to its wider, more men­ac­ing stance, the Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat Wide­body de­liv­ers im­proved lap times, lat­eral grip, ac­cel­er­a­tion and brak­ing, com­pared with the per­for­mance num­bers of the Hell­cat. Quar­ter-mile elapsed time (ET) has been im­proved by ap­prox­i­mately 0.3 sec (10.9 ET on the Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat Wide­body -v- 11.2 ET on the stan­dard Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat.

With the Wide­body fender flares that add 3.5 inches to the over­all width of the Chal­lenger Hell­cat, the Wide­body model joins the Chal­lenger SRT De­mon as the widest Chal­lengers ever. The flares are ex­pertly in­te­grated into the body de­sign with concealed at­tach­ments to am­plify the Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat’s men­ac­ing stance, while mak­ing room for the 20 x 11-inch “Devil’s Rim” split­five spoke alu­minum wheels that ride on 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires for im­proved per­for­mance while fill­ing the wheel wells for a stronger planted ap­pear­ance. The front side marker lights are styled to flow with the shape of the fender flares.

The Dodge Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat Wide­body is pow­ered by the 6.2-liter su­per­charged HEMI V8 with 707 horse­power and 650 lb.-ft. torque, paired to ei­ther the Tre­mec six-speed man­ual or TorqueFlite eight-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.

The award-win­ning video wall is lo­cated at The Dubai Mall.

The new 2018 Dodge Chal­lenger SRT Hell­cat Wide­body is avail­able in Dodge show­rooms across the Mid­dle East.
