Dodge Teases ‘Something Big’ – Is It The Charger Hellcat Redeye?

Get ready to see a major release from Dodge in the near future, as a new teaser announces that “something big is coming”.

The short video portrays a Charger of some sort under the cover, fading away all of a sudden just when the piece of material flies off.

While it doesn’t give out anything on what we should expect, according to recent reports, the new model could be the Hellcat Redeye.

A sister model to the Challenger Hellcat Redeye, it’s thought to be based on the Widebody version of the sedan, likely adding some visual enhancements meant to make it instantly noticeable. Those who won’t see it drive by, they will most likely hear it whine, as it will be powered by the 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 found in the Challenger.

The mill will likely retain the same output, meaning 797 horsepower (808 PS / 595 kW) and 707 pound-feet (959 Nm) of torque. The Challenger Redeye does naught to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) in just 3.4 seconds and tops out at 203 mph (327 km/h), so we expect similar performance for the Charger, with a 1/4-mille time of around 11 seconds.

Dodge will perhaps lift the curtain for the Charger Hellcat Redeye in the weeks to come, but not before teasing it a few more times.

    I’m in love already.

    I wish Dodge would make a Journey-sized SRT SUV. The Durango is too big for my needs.

    • Toronado_II

      SUV is for Jeep now…

      • Tom

        Then I wish Jeep would make a Cherokee-sized (not Grand Cherokee) SRT SUV.

        • Rocket

          There was talk of a potential SRT Cherokee a few years ago. If memory serves, rumors had it powered by a normally aspirated high output 3.6, turbocharged 3.2L or high output 2.0T. But like so many other Dodge/Chrysler rumors, it just faded away.

    Man, those cars are fun. I rented one and the engine was heaven. I can only imagine what driving one of theses babies would be like. I want!

  • Bo Hanan

    Maybe they just cleaned up the design. The front end here looks much better than the current car.

  • Paulbe

    Wouldn’t it be better if they actually teased something new? Assuming FCA care anymore about the Dodge brand’s future.

  • Fabián Montiel
  • JRP

    I swear every time we think Dodge is coming up with something new it’s one of their grandpa cars with a new engine.

    • donald seymour

      And I’m okay with that. At least for now.

  • Liam Paul

    get ready for something bug , we changed the bumpers and headlights again

    • Puddingpopper

      barely

  • Felipe Politano

    We’d be actually surprised if Dodge had teased something SMALL
