This HEMI® Hellcat engine is Dodge and SRT's first application of V-8 supercharger technology, delivering the full brand experience with fresh potency. This breakthrough, supercharged engine features a forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearing surfaces. The result is a crank so well-engineered it can withstand firing pressures of 110 bar (1,595 psi) - the equivalent of five family sedans standing on each piston, every two revolutions. And its unique, specially tuned crank damper has been tested to 13,000 rpm. High-strength, forged-alloy pistons - developed using advanced telemetry measurement - are coupled to powder-forged connecting rods with high-load-capacity bushings and diamond-like-carbon-coated piston pins.
Also returning in 2016 is the Dodge Challenger SRT 392 model with its 392 cubic inch HEMI V-8. Power output remains at a potent 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque.
The SRT 392 model also can be mated with the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic, or the proven six-speed manual transmission.
