Over the weekend, we broke some news about the upcoming 2021 Dodge Charger lineup and the fact that they are scheduled for production in November. One of those new models scheduled for 2021 production is the new 797 horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. With the new model, comes a new hood design allowing for more air to help cool the 2.7-liter IHI supercharger on top of the 6.2-liter HEMI V8.
In that article, we also said that it was likely that the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody would also receive the new hood design as well. Now our spy photographers have come through, with a new 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody featuring the new hood on the streets of Metro Detroit. That’s right, unlike the prototypes we have previously seen, this car has all of its Hellcat badging showing us it isn’t the upcoming Redeye. Redeye prototypes have yet to be spotted with their Hellcat Redeye badging.
The move to feature both the Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye models would follow suit with the current Challenger offerings. It also could mean that the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody could be getting a slight boost in power to 717 horsepower, like its Challenger sibling and making it on par with the limited edition 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Daytona.
We expect that the official unveiling of the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye will be soon. Thanks to our dealer connections, we have been told that ordering for the 2021 models opens on October 6th, 2020.
