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.
