How many miles per gallon would you expect to earn from a powerful machine outfitted with a 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat V8 engine producing 707 horsepower? I would venture to say you wouldn’t expect that high of an EPA-Estimated MPG. Sometimes you have to compromise fuel economy for the sake of intense power, right? You absolutely do not have to make that sacrifice, especially in this case. The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat defies that myth, offering both 707 horsepower and an EPA-Estimated 22 mpg highway fuel efficiency.
The 2015 Challenger’s engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, providing owners with the best of both worlds.
“The new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the perfect street / strip muscle car,” said Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO for Dodge and SRT Brands. “As the fastest muscle car ever, the Challenger Hellcat can run 10-second ETs at the track, and then get 22 miles per gallon on the drive home. With a starting price of $59,995, there’s nothing else that even comes close.”
Kuniskis is absolutely correct. Luxury car competitors offer less power and less mileage on the highway while sporting a six-figure price tag.
