Most of the planet has heard about the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat by now, so the Dodge brand has moved on to the next stage: Allowing folks to hear the Hellcat itself, courtesy of a free mobile ringtone available at www.DriveSRT.com/HellcatRingtone. Compatible with select Apple, Android and Blackberry devices, the ringtone will provide an ear-popping attention-getter that signals a revolution in performance.
As explained by Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO of the Dodge and SRT Brands for Chrysler Group LLC: “When you name an engine ‘Hellcat,’ it had better have the performance to back it up and a sound that wakes up the devil. The Hellcat’s signature sound is the unholy union of supercharger whine and 5.5 inches of unrestricted exhaust. Dodge/SRT fans can now make heads turn and people stop in their tracks, every time their phones ring.”
Just remember, while that supercharger will no doubt hit the high notes, and the open exhaust enables hi-po acoustics, it's the 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine that creates a symphony for the devil here. Of course, it also creates 707 hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque for the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, enough to turn in quarter-mile times of 11.2 seconds on stock rubber.
In other digital news about the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the brand announced it would offer downloadable "wallpaper" graphics of the car at the SRT website, and also launch a "three-dimensional augmented-reality app," on iTunes and Google Play, to provide an immersive experience with the 2015 Dodge Challenger lineup.
The 2015 Dodge Challenger models are expected to arrive in dealerships during the third quarter of 2014, with MSRPs that range from $26,995 for the 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT up to $59,995 for the range-topping Hellcat.
