Even though the Mustang and Hornet have gone through a facelift, the Challenger has been around since 2008, ignoring the new, more modern styling of its rivals and combining the Demon with the Hellcat to create the new 797hp top-of-the-range Hellcat Redeye. Dodge Challenger 2022 Price ₱ 6,350,000. The Hellcat Redeye is powered by the 6.2-liter V8 from the Demon, and despite a slight drop in output, it still delivers 797hp/97.7kgm of performance. Combined with 8-speed automatic transmission, the Hellcat Redeye not only achieves a top speed of 327km/h, but also accelerates from zero to 96km/h (60mph) in 3.4 seconds.
The engine has been enhanced in detail, from 11.6psi to 14.5psi, with stronger pistons and connecting rods, high-speed valves, and an improved oiling and lubrication system, allowing the Hellcat Redeye to accelerate the 1/4 mile (400m) straight away in 10.8 seconds at a tail speed of 211km/h, just 1.15 seconds slower than the Demon. The Redeye accelerates in 10 seconds with a tail speed of 211km/h for the quarter-mile (approx. 400m), just 1.15 seconds slower than the Demon.
The Hellcat Redeye consumes 5.4L of petrol per minute at full throttle, and even with a full tank, it can run out of fuel in less than 11 minutes. Even in everyday driving, the fuel consumption is only 9.35km/L at highway speeds.
Externally, the Hellcat Redeye is a continuation of the Hellcat’s wide body style, with an increase of around 89mm in width to accommodate a wider 20″ tire set to provide sufficient grip. In line with the New Year’s Hellcat, the Hellcat Redeye will also be equipped with a new bonnet with twin air intakes in homage to the brand’s classic 1970s muscle car.
The interior is similar to the new Hellcat line-up, with a central 8.4″ touchscreen multimedia screen and carbon-fiber trim, but with red seat belts to enhance the sporty ambiance. The instrumentation remains traditional and analog, but the final speedometer has been increased to 220mph (approx. 354km/h) and the central information display has been given its own red-eyed Hellcat icon.
