2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Dual-Snorkel Review & Changes – The recent Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat previously has a hood scoop any performance car could be happy to have. But simply like with ice skin cream, why end with one scoop when you may have two? When the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is delivered this year, it will feature a rad dual-snorkel intake hood.
In a simple and fairly sweet hit release, Dodge claims the new hood “pays honor to the special Mopar design styles from some of [the brand’s] most well-known muscle cars.” The release continues to say the hood “harkens back to the mid-’60s and earlier-’70s, however with a present-day presentation that appears much more menacing and gives greatest air intake to the supercharged powerplant.”
We cannot set our finger on specifically which muscle cars encouraged the Hellcat’s new twin-nostril hood, but we like the appearance. It is also hard to notify from all of these teaser graphics how large the intake opportunities are, though with two of them put together, they may come near to-and even exceed- the 42.5 sq inches of the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon’s scoop, the biggest manufacturing hood scoop actually.
Apart from publicizing the new hood design, the release does not notify us a lot. Will the 2019 Challenger Hellcat proceed to supply 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque from a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8? The engine is most likely to hold over, however with the Demon now out of generation, maybe some of its techs will drip down to the Hellcat’s V-8 to boost power. We will find out more this season as we obtain much closer to the 2019 Challenger Hellcat’s coming. Remain tuned.
