2019 Dodge Challenger Pricing Announced, SRT Hellcat Redeye Costs $69,650

Dodge unveiled the 2019 Challenger lineup yesterday and now the company has revealed the Hellcat Redeye will cost $69,650.

Priced $15,345 less than the Challenger SRT Demon, the Hellcat Redeye features a number of the same high-performance modifications. In particular, the car’s 6.2-liter V8 engine has a 2.7-liter supercharger, an upgraded fuel injection system and strengthened pistons. These changes enable the mill to produce 797 hp (594 kW / 808 PS) and 707 lb-ft (957 Nm) of torque.

The Hellcat Redeye is offered exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission and it enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 203 mph (326 km/h). Dodge also claims the model is the “fastest grand touring production car” as it can run the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds at 131 mph (210 km/h).

 

 

While the Redeye is the star of the show, the standard Challenger SRT Hellcat just become a lot more affordable. Dodge cut the price by over $5,000 and the Hellcat now starts at $58,650. Despite the price cut, the car has an upgraded engine that produces 717 hp (534 kW / 727 PS) and 656 lb-ft (888 Nm) of torque.

Now that the fun stuff is out of the way, let’s start at the beginning. The entry-level Challenger SXT RWD is priced from $27,295 and it features a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 305 hp (227 kW / 309 PS) and 268 lb-ft (363 Nm) of torque. The car can also be equipped with all-wheel drive for an additional $3,000.

For 2019, there’s a new Challenger GT RWD which costs $29,995. The model comes standard with a Super Track Pak which includes a performance suspension, a sportier hood and a front splitter. The package also adds cloth Houndstooth seats, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters (on automatic models) and 20-inch Granite Crystal painted wheels. The GT is powered by the aforementioned V6 engine and all-wheel drive is optional.

 

 

The cheapest way to get behind the wheel of a V8-powered model is by ordering a Challenger R/T which starts at $34,100. It has a 5.7-liter HEMI producing up to 375 hp (280 kW / 380 PS) and 410 lb-ft (555 Nm) of torque.

Buyers who have Hellcat dreams and R/T budgets will want to check out the Challenger R/T Scat Pack. Pricing starts at $38,995 but opting for the manual transmission results in a $1,000 gas guzzler tax. That’s unfortunate, but the model has a 6.4-liter V8 pumping out 485 hp (361 kW / 491 PS) and 475 lb-ft (643 Nm) of torque.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger lineup will arrive at dealerships late this year and you can read more about the changes here.

    If this is a limited edition model then that’s a good price. And IMHO blue is this cars color.
