2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat Octane Edition Revealed

Other Big Updates Appear On The 2019 Charger Hellcat, As Well

The 707 horsepower Dodge Charger Hellcat was revealed back in 2014, and to this day, remains the fastest vehicle with four doors in the world. That’s a lot of bragging rights for just $65,545. And the 2019 Charger Hellcat will continue to draw a following with the new Octane Edition.

The 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition gives owners a unique combination of paint and trim levels, which creates a popular black-out color theme. For the real murdered-out look, buyers can go for Pitch Black, but a more contrasting White Knuckle exterior paint is available as well. The limited-edition 2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat Octane Edition package includes:

  • Satin Black center stripe with Octane Red accents
  • Black exterior badging, including grille, decklid and fender badges
  • Black decklid spoiler with a satin finish
  • 20 x 9.5-inch aluminum-forged wheels, painted a low-gloss black, shared with the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320
  • Octane Red Brembo brake calipers (six-piston front calipers/four-piston rear)
  • SRT Performance seats with Houndstooth insert (the first time on a Dodge Charger Hellcat), SRT Hellcat logo stitched into the seat back and red accent stitching Red interior stitching throughout the cabin
  • Black-on-black SRT Hellcat instrument panel badge
  • Red seat belts
  • Gloss black interior accents, darkened instrument panel and darkened console bezels.

But it’s not just about the visuals. The 2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat introduces several performance upgrades. Peep them below:

  • New performance grille with dual inlets that feed cooler, outside air into the engine compartment
  • Launch Assist, which uses wheel speed sensors to watch for wheel hop at launch and modifies the engine torque to regain full grip within milliseconds
  • Line Lock, aka burnout mode
  • After-Run Chiller, which keeps cooling the supercharger/charge air cooler after the 6.2L supercharged Hellcat V8 engine is shut off. This is a pulldown feature from the Dodge Challenger Demon
  • Wheels include knurled bead seats to minimize tire slip on the wheel under extreme acceleration
  • Torque Reserve, which closes a bypass valve to prefill the supercharger and manages fuel flow and spark advance to balance engine rpm and torque. This generates a reserve of torque that is delivered upon acceleration from a standing stop.

The 2019 Dodge Charger Hellcat Octane Edition package will carry an MSRP of just $1,495. Orders are open now, but Dodge warns that the package will only be available until the end of the 2019 model year. Happy hunting.
