The all-new Dodge Challenger Hellcat debuts in Oman!
Posted on: 01 November 2015

Oman, Muscat: Dhofar Automotive, the exclusive dealers of Dodge vehicles launched their highly anticipated Dodge Challenger Hellcat in Oman. The vehicle is poised to create a new benchmark by being one of the most powerful muscle-car ever.
The iconic muscle coupe is propelled by the new supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8 with an output of 707hp - greater than any V8 engine in Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s (FCA) celebrated history and making it the most powerful muscle car ever. The available V8 can be mated with an upgraded six-speed manual transmission or a new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic - the first such gearbox ever offered.

“The supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8 is beyond robust, and is a knockout punch from Dodge in the ongoing fight for muscle-car supremacy, said Biju Luckose, Marketing Manager of Dhofar Automotive. “With 91% new content compared with the standard 392 HEMI, the Challenger Hellcat can be paired with a modified, Viper-sourced six-speed manual transmission that boasts an internal cooling pump and external, vehicle-mounted oil cooler. Its 258mm heavy-duty clutch affords easy access to the new engine’s extraordinary power.”

That’s not all, with the Challenger Hellcat; the Challenger comes with TorqueFlite family of eight-speed automatic transmissions. Like its predecessors, one that is unparalleled in efficiency and unrivaled for its smoothness.
To withstand the supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8’s ground-breaking output, this transmission’s maximum engine-torque capacity is 30% greater than any eight-speed previously offered by the group. With the new transmission, an extra layer of quality testing has been added to make sure shift responsiveness would match SRT customers’ expectations in a wide range of driving scenarios.

A new M-gate shifter and steering-wheel-mounted paddles better connect driver and transmission - key considerations when tapping the nearly 200 possible drive-mode combinations that stem from five distinct settings: Default, Sport, Track, Valet, and Custom.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat’s Launch Control is standard. The feature’s performance is enhanced by new, stiffer, asymmetric half-shafts that minimize “power hop” under hard acceleration, and a new driveshaft that boasts high-strength CV joints and geometry optimized for spirited driving.
