The all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT will feature Dodge’s most powerful V8 ever, making it both the most powerful Challenger ever built and the most powerful muscle car ever.
Under the hood, the 2015 Challenger will boast a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat engine, cranking out 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.
It’s the first factory supercharged HEMI and Dodge’s first application of V8 supercharger technology. Such is its power that Dodge has taken upon itself to offer buyers not one but two standard key fobs—one red and one black.
The black fob is benign enough. When used to start the engine, it will be reduced to a “mild” 500 horsepower output. When the red fob is used, the Challenger SRT’s full horsepower and torque potential is unlocked.
We’re not sure if making two fobs to separate the 500 and 707 horsepower experiences was necessary, but we imagine it will lend itself to quite a bit of fun—like when pressing a big red button to make something incredible happen. Just bust out your red key fob and hear the engine roar in response.
