2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: Manual or Automatic?

Since driving the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, I have been asked by countless people whether the 6-speed manual transmission or the new heavy duty 8-speed automatic transmission is the better choice so today I will answer the $60,000 question – although there is really no “right” answer to that question.

Since we learned that the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat would have 707 horsepower from a new supercharged Hemi, the critics have demanded to know the weight and not surprisingly, the Hellcat Challenger is pretty heavy with a curb weight of 4,439lbs – but that weight is hardly noticeable whether you are blasting down the quarter mile or rocketing around a road course.
