707-hp Challenger SRT Hellcat rated at 22 mpg highway

Dodge has announced the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat has been rated by the EPA to do 22 mpg on the highway.

According to Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO – Dodge and SRT Brands, “The new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the perfect street / strip muscle car. As the fastest muscle car ever, the Challenger Hellcat can run 10-second ETs at the track, and then get 22 miles per gallon on the drive home. With a starting price of $59,995, there’s nothing else that even comes close.”

Consider the price, power and mpg ratings of the following high-performance vehicles:

  • Lamborghini Aventador Roadster – $425,845; 700 horsepower; 18 mpg
  • Aston Marton Vanquish – $287,820; 576 horsepower; 18 mpg
  • Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT – $221,580; 583 horsepower; 19 mpg

Here’s a quick refresher: The Challenger SRT Hellcat is powered by a 6.2-liter Supercharged Hellcat HEMI engine, delivering 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque backed by a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission.

That’s not all: The Challenger SRT Hellcat also earns an EPA highway fuel-economy 21 mpg when equipped with the new 6-speed manual transmission.
