This is the ’19 Dodge Charger HellCat, caught for the first time while testing outside of SRT’s headquarters.
The Charger will get a mild facelift for 2019 before a new version finally comes in 2021, based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia platform. For now, the HellCat gets a modified grille, front fascia and hood, though it’s likely to be fairly similar to the current model. Expect some mild performance upgrades, too, although horsepower may not stray from the magic 707 number.
The Charger may also benefit from some of FCA’s newer driver assistance technologies, while the HellCat itself may also benefit from better ways to put its enormous power on the ground from its supercharged V8. Expect to see the new Charger late this year.
