Hooah! Each Dodge is now available with more than 700 horsepower

The world is in trouble right now. But Dodge believes it has the answer to all of our problems: horsepower.

No matter what the problem is, be it a global pandemic or if you have bitten that tiny bit of skin next to your nail that seems to bleed forever – the answer according to powerful coffins in Dodge’s SRT tuning division is more power.

This morning Dodge dropped an 8,950bhp bomb into the world courtesy of the news that, I can’t believe I’m writing this, all models in Dodge’s range (now that the Journey and the Great Caravan are being discontinued) They will have a SRT version of over 700 horsepower powered by Hellcat, courtesy of the new Challenger Super Stock, Charger Redeye and Durango Hellcat entering the Dodge Madhouse.

That’s the power of the Lamborghini Aventador in a family SUV. With the new 710bhp, Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat is now considered the most powerful SUV for sale. Don’t you like SUVs? Without worries. As is the new 203 mph, 797 hp Dodge Charger SRT Redeye, the world’s most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan. But if you view those power numbers as rookie numbers, Dodge has expanded its range to offer a replacement for the now-out-of-production Demon: the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock 807bhp.

Let’s start with the Super Stock. Using the same wide body kit as the Hellcat Redeye and the Demon’s fat, sticky 315-section-wide Nitto NT05R drag spokes, it fits right in between those two beasts. But there is a very important difference. A power to be precise. Using the same supercharged 6.2-liter V8 to go to the bathroom as the Redeye and Super Stock generates 10 more horsepower than the Redeye but exactly 1bhp less than the 808bhp Demon so as not to disturb his older brother.

Like the Demon, it’s also focused on drag with strip-ready tires, a shorter final drive ratio of 3.09, and an improved load transfer of a custom Bilstein suspension tune. See, when you select ‘Track’ mode, the front suspension is configured for firm compression and smooth rebound, while the rear will hold firm for both compression and rebound, allowing the Challenger to transfer as much load as possible to the rear to sweep as much traction as possible before shooting off the horizon in an invisible cloud of noise but visible cloud of clutch and tire smoke.

Nothing is known about the price, but since it’s the meat in the Redeye / Demon sandwich, the Super Stock is expected to be a little more expensive than the $ 80,190 Redeye widebody (US only). But it will add some sweetness to the salty taste in the mouth of people who missed a Demon. But if you can’t live with two doors, but a figure of over 700 horsepower is a must on your car shopping list, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is your bag.

The old man, without conjunctivitis, claimed to be the fastest sedan in the world, so it’s no surprise that this one with an additional 80 horsepower and 57 pound-feet of torque is even faster. And it is properly fast. 203 mph fast. Again, it uses a 6.2-liter supercharged V8, but a new, larger 2.7-liter IHI supercharger has been bolted on (used to be 2.4). This produces more momentum. And momentum is a good thing. Now up to 14.5 psi (compared to 11.6 psi), it breaks to a higher red line of 6,500 rpm.

However, that is not the only change. Now you need more fuel, to quench this outrageous thirst, you have not one, but two dual-stage fuel pumps. Fortunately, some of the internal parts have been reinforced to compensate, and there is a new scooped hood, mail slot grille, and cold air intake near the steering wheel to suck in as much air as possible. Apparently 18 percent more air now enters the Hellcat engine to deliver 797 horsepower and 707 pounds of torque. Charming.

But what if you want a car with four doors but you have a dicky in the back so you can’t go down but you MUST also have more than 700 hp? Well, take a step this way and check out the Durango SRT Hellcat, a head-butt to the Jeep Cherokee Trackhawk schnoz.

Obviously a 710bhp 645lb ft SUV is not needed. But that doesn’t mean we don’t need it. Especially since it has been certified by the National Hot Rod Association with a time of 11.5 second quarter mile and 3.5 second 0-60 mph. Which is mental considering that it weighs almost the same as a cruiser and can tow 3,946 kg. But SRT claims there has also been a 400 percent increase in rear downforce. It really is amazing what shaving a brick can do, huh? Well, now it’s good enough for a top speed of 180 mph, which should not be detected.

So what more than 700 Dodge horsepower would you have?
