To say there is a lot of excitement surrounding the upcoming 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody is an understatement. For the past few years, Charger fans have been sitting by the wayside while Challenger owners have gotten all of the new goodies and now it’s their turn.
Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America stated, “(Dodge fans) quickly noticed that the scales were tipped in the favor of the Challenger and not as much in favor of the Charger. So today is step one in rectifying that”. The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody will be step two in the process of making Charger fans happy.
If you remember, MoparInsiders showed you a leaked internal rendering of the new 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody featuring its new hood design. Several of our sources have stated that both Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye models will get the new hood in 2021. So it seems there will be some exciting news for Charger SRT Hellcat buyers.
Just like the standard car, it is expected that the Redeye model will come only as a Widebody model. But you may be wondering what else makes it different from the standard 707 horsepower model, and here are some details…
- Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI High-Output V-8 engine (797 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque)
- TorqueFlite 8HP90 Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission
- 2.7-liter IHI Supercharger
- 6,500 RPM Limit (compared to Hellcat’s 6,200 RPM limit)
- Increased Boost Pressure of 14.5 PSI (Hellcat has 11.6 PSI)
- Two Dual-Stage Fuel Pumps (Hellcat has one)
- Only Factory Sedan With Both SRT Power Chiller™ and After-Run Chiller
- High-Strength Steel Prop Shifts (15% increase in torque capacity)
- 41-Spline Half-Shafts (20% increase in torque capacity)
We expect to see the new Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody make its official debut soon. According to our sources, an updated production schedule at the Brampton Assembly Plant is calling for production of the 2021 Dodge Charger to begin on Monday, November 9th, 2020. We are also hearing that ordering should begin in the first week of October for the 2021 model year four-door muscle car.
