Dodge Challenger Redeye: the T Rex of muscle-cars

  • 2018 Mercedes-AMG GLC63 S Coupe White Front Right Quarter

Amazingly, it's been almost 10 years since Dodge first introduced the retro-styled Challenger, and heading into the 2019 model year, the auto doesn't look terribly different than it did back then.

Over the course of the past week, the 2019 Dodge Challenger has been the hottest ticket in the automotive industry thanks in part of the introduction of the 797-horsepower Hellcat Redeye package. Want to move up to all-wheel drive?

Interestingly, the Redeye is only available with an automatic transmission, with Dodge offering customers no alternative to an eight-speed 'box.

If you want the same engine but a bit sportier of a look, the Challenger GT will set you back either $29,995 (RWD) or $32,995 (AWD). The model comes standard with a Super Track Pak which includes a performance suspension, a sportier hood and a front splitter.

The Challenger R/T will start at $34,100 for 2019.

Packing in a 6.2-litre V8 mated to a 2.7-litre belt-driven supercharger, the Hellcat Redeye is capable of putting out a staggering 797bhp and 707lb ft of torque. Pricing starts at $38,995 but opting for the manual transmission results in a $1,000 gas guzzler tax. Well we have good news for you in that case, too, because the next-best SRT Hellcat is now even more potent (at 717 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque), yet now starts at $58,650 - a good $5k less than last year's model.

The vehicle will be on sale in the fourth quarter of 2018 for around $70,000, and unlike last year's Demon, Beahm is promising that it will be much more widely available. The package also adds cloth Houndstooth seats, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters (on automatic models) and 20-inch Granite Crystal painted wheels.

And then there's the Redeye.

The order banks for the 2019 Dodge Charger are open now and the company expects the first units to reach dealerships during the 3rd quarter of 2018. At maximum speed, the Hellcat Redeye uses 1.4 gallons of gas - a little over $3 at current average prices - and will drain the fuel tank in just 11 minutes.
