Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Supercharged Badges on Sale Now
When the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was first introduced, the most unique emblem on the entire exterior was the chrome “Supercharged” logo on each of the front fenders. Even though the whine of the IHI Hellcat supercharger is unmistakable and the front end is unique to the 707hp models, the words on the fenders made sure that no mistakes were made in identifying the most powerful American muscle car ever.
However, after a strong reception for the Hellcat head logo used on the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat that debuted in August at the Woodward Dream Cruise, Dodge opted to switch to the Hellcat head logo on both of the supercharged models. I really like the Hellcat head logo, but there is no denying the cool factor of the Supercharged badge, so it should come as no surprise that there are some Hellcat Challenger owners who would have preferred the induction designation on the fenders rather than the Hellcat head. I have also received more than a few comments and messages from Dodge fans who didn't like the change to the Hellcat head. Well, it seems that you can now buy those Supercharged badges through the Chrysler parts network.
Supercharged Hellcat Emblems
According to Allpar, the Hellcat Supercharged chrome fender emblem is Chrysler part number 68239549AA and in hunting around the internet a bit, it looks like the average online price is in the $40-45 range, with list prices ranging from $50-$65. This means that with some careful online shopping, Hellcat Challenger owners can swap to the Supercharged logos for around $80, while some dental floss and some elbow grease can complete the fairly simple DIY modification.
Of course, this Supercharged emblem could be just as enticing to 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat owners who want to make it clear which engine is under the hood, just in case the sound and the unique body package doesn’t make it clear enough. This is also good news for the many current Viper, Ram, Grand Cherokee, Durango Charger and Challenger owners who are running an aftermarket supercharger setup, as they will be able to sport the same fender logos on their own vehicle as Dodge used for the first Hellcat Challenger debut car.
If you have a Hellcat Challenger or are expecting a Hellcat Charger to arrive in your garage soon, you can also pick up the Supercharged fender badge at your local dealership, but the odds are good that you will pay more for the same thing at a dealership than you would by shopping online.
