Worst Thing About the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat - No 1971 Inspired Front End

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is one mean looking muscle car with 707 horsepower to back up those looks as the most powerful American production car ever so it is hard to find something not to like about this super-Challenger – the fact that the 1971 inspired grille of the 2015 Challenger lineup isn't available.

This past weekend I had the extreme privilege of flying to Portland Oregon to spend some time with the 2015 Dodge Challenger lineup and while we had an opportunity to drive all of the new models, all of my attention was on the new Challenger SRT Hellcat.
