Written by Rochester Hills Dodge Chrysler Jeep

America's premier performance brand continues to push the limits of what's possible with the unveiling of the 2021 Charger Hellcat Redeye! The world's only four-door muscle car brings the power with a 797 horsepower model, which is the most potent and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world. For the nearly 800 horsepower SRT Hellcat to be put to the pavement, Dodge has created a Widebody exterior with integrated fender flairs, which adds 3.5 inches of body width. The all-new 20-inch lightweight carbon black wheels provide the Charger Hellcat Redeye with more traction to burn up the road, while a freshly designed performance hood gives the Hellcat a rip-roaring look. There is so much more to go over with this amazingly fast muscle car, continue reading as we dive in!

What's New in 2021

The Dodge Hellcat SRT Hellcat Redeye is the most potent Dodge vehicle ever as it boasts a supercharged V8 that pumps out a mind-boggling 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. This fantastic engine is capable of getting the Hellcat Redeye to a top speed of 203 mph. On a 2.1-mile road course, the Hellcat Redeye runs 1.2 seconds faster than the Charger SRT Hellcat, which is equal to seven car lengths after one lap. Coming standard is a standard Widebody package that comes with integrated fender flairs that add 3.5 inches of width over the wider wheels and tires. One of the coolest standard features on the Hellcat Redeye is the award-winning SRT Power Chiller, which lowers the intake temperature and helps improve performance. Stylishly this mighty muscle car adds a functional performance hood, which gives the car a menacing look.

A Monster WIth Soul

Designed for muscle car enthusiasts, the SRT Hellcat Redeye brings you more power, more performance, and epic bragging rights to the strip. The heart and soul of the Hellcat Redeye come from the limited-production 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The supercharged V8 engine not only boasts 797 horsepower but a smooth sailing eight-speed automatic transmission as well, allowing you to get all that power under control. Internally, the Hellcat Redeye boasts an upgraded torque converter, which delivers an eighteen percent increase in torque manipulation over the Charger SRT Hellcat. Like the Demon that came before it, the Hellcat Redeye's engine comes with 25 separate upgrades that improve performance. Among these is an increased boost pressure and a higher RPM limit.

Burn the Road, Not the Car

With all high-performance muscle cars, heat is a significant concern, which is why Dodge has taken its time with trying to add more ways to improve the air intake to optimize the temperature. One of the significant improvements Dodge made is the addition of a functional performance hood that provides maximum air intake via the mail-slot grille opening and airbox opening. Additionally, the innovative and award-winning SRT Power Chiller lowers the air temperature and improves performance. It does this by diverting the air conditioning refrigerant from the cabin to a chiller unit that is mounted by a low-temperature cooler pump. Dodge has also added a Race Cooldown feature, which is an industry first. This fantastic feature minimizes all heat soak effects, which allows the engine to stay at optimum operating temperature. When the motor turns off, the Race Cooldown keeps the engine cooling fan running to cool the temperature further. Every driver can keep track of the coolant temperature via the Hellcat Redeye's Uconnect system.

More Technology and Features

For 2021, the SRT Hellcat Redeye comes loaded with amazing features. Coming standard is an Adaptive Damping Suspension, which features three different modes: auto, sport, and track. Also included is an Electric Power Steering System, which provides a better steering feel and control over steering when easing into parking spaces. Launch Assist helps cut down on the vehicle's wheel hop as well as adjusting for torque spikes, while the Launch Control holds the engine at optimal launch rpm and waits for the driver to engage the brake. Perhaps one of the most technologically advanced features that the Hellcat Redeye possesses is the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, which allows drivers to adjust the horsepower, transmission shift speeds, steering effort, paddle shifters, and traction and suspension settings. You also have access to critical vehicle performance data right at your fingertips, which includes a real-time dyno graph and g force heat map.
