Is This The Next Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat? [Update: Yes!]

Dodge currently is hosting this video unlisted on their YouTube page with no information about it on their media site so, frankly, your guess is a good as ours.

The title of the video, “RED797_62818 | Challenger | Dodge,” seems a bit to us like a place holder. The “RED797” portion being the video name and “62818” being today’s date, an indicator to the their team the date it’s to be made public, perhaps? There is also speculation that the 797 refers to horsepower which would be a 90hp increase putting this Challenger at near Demon numbers.

We will update as needed with any new developments, but until then enjoy this teaser…Whatever it might be.

UPDATE

News has dropped and the RED797 does in fact refer to the new Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, a 797hp beast and it’s not alone, joining the, “powerful SRT Hellcat lineup ever.”

With the new horsepower and 707lb.-ft. of torque comes a new top speed time of 203mph and title of “fastest grand touring (GT) production car with a ¼-mile elapsed time (E.T.) of 10.8 seconds at 131 mph.” The Redeye joins the normal Hellcat (as if 700+ hp is normal) which saw a 10hp increase bringing its new total to 717hp and 655lb.-ft. of torque.

Additionally Dodge will be putting out widebody versions of both expanding the SRT Hellcat lineup to four models. You can checkout the press release from Dodge in its entirety here.
