The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Weighs 4,439lbs
Since the modern Dodge Challenger was introduced for the 2008 model year, it has been criticized for being by far the heaviest option in the muscle car segment. Many Mopar fans had hoped to see the Challenger cut some weight with the introduction of the 2015 models, but with the new generation of the Challenger having many of the same dimensions as the outgoing version – there was likely no weight loss plan included. Because of this, many of the Mustang and Camaro fans looking for a reason to discredit the Hellcat have insisted that the Hellcat Challenger wont be a real performance factor because of its weight.
Even when the Hellcat Challenger turned out a better NHRA certified stock time than anything from Ford or General Motors – the haters clamored that it will weight too much to compete. While the Hellcat Challenger’s 707 horsepower supercharged Hemi, the dual mode suspension setup, the retuned chassis and the massive braking package allow the beast to handle itself well in any setting – it is still pretty heavy.
In fact, the Hellcat Challenger is, by far, the heaviest of the modern American sports cars with a curb weight starting at 4,439 pounds.
