797 HP for new Hellcat Redeye, 717 HP for Hellcat

Go to the official FCA media page: http://media.fcanorthamerica.com/new...id=19985&mid=1 and read about the new 2019 Charger. At the bottom of the story is the following information about the 2019 Challengers:

For more than 100 years, the Dodge brand has carried on the spirit of brothers John and Horace Dodge, who founded the brand in 1914. Their influence continues today. New for 2019, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is possessed by the Demon. Its 797-horsepower supercharged HEMI® high-output engine makes it the most powerful, quickest and fastest muscle car reaching 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.4 seconds and the fastest GT production car with a ¼ mile elapsed time (ET) of 10.8 seconds at 131 mph. It also reaches a new top speed of 203 mph. Joining the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat with its more powerful 717-horsepower engine, as well as the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody, which features fender flares from the SRT Hellcat Widebody and adds 3.5 inches of width to Scat Pack’s footprint.

Am I missing something? Nothing in that article about the '19 Challenger:

For more than 100 years, the Dodge brand has carried on the spirit of brothers John and Horace Dodge, who founded the company in 1914. Their influence continues today. New for 2018, the 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the fastest quarter-mile production car in the world and most powerful muscle car ever, is taking the world by storm, along with the new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT, America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV, and the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody. These new SRT ultimate performance models join a brand lineup that includes the Durango, Grand Caravan, Journey, Charger and Challenger, including the 707-horsepower Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Charger SRT Hellcat, the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world.

**With a little research, I did find that same information here however:

Maybe someone reminded them they made the Demon in '18 and its still King of the Hill, so they corrected it.

Yes, FCA took down their info about the 2019 Challenger because it wasn't supposed to be reveled until 11:30 am. Now they have updated their pages and the official press release for the 2019's is out.

So they are basically phasing out the SRT model version? 2019 Scat Pack will now have the option to come with everything the SRT has.

So it looks like the R/T SP gets the old Hellcat hood, and the new SRT Hellcat gets the raisin bran hood.

Gone is the "SRT" and the "T/A"

SRT back to being and across the board designation for other FCA models.

Looks like it, and a smart move, based on SRT 392 sales numbers.


Appears that FCA took a little from the TA/HC/SRT 392, and made the Scat Pack as the "gateway drug" to the SRT HC's. Smart move again, IMO.


Looks like we'll see a wider price range for both the Scat Packs and HC's, which should keep a lot of folks happy.


Pretty nice line up for '19.
