Dodge keeps levelling up its Charger — the fastest, most powerful 4-door sedan on the planet — now teaming up with SRT on this limited edition Octane Edition with its blacked out vibe and exclusive features you can’t get with other Charger SRT Hellcats.
Expect the same 6.2L HEMI V8 under the hood, still putting down a whopping 707-hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, you’d find in the ‘typical’ Charger SRT Hellcat we reviewed here. But this special edition variant looks to separate itself from the pack with mostly cosmetic changes, both inside and out.
As Dodge puts it, “In the world of muscle cars, limited editions are valued by enthusiasts for their uniqueness and collectability, both today and in the future.”
For a closer look at the Charger in general, check out these 13 things to know.
Here’s what makes this Charger SRT Hellcat different:
- New wheels borrowed from the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320, the Octane Edition Charger rolls on low-gloss black 20 x 9.5-inch aluminum-forged Cross Brace wheels which limit acceleration tire slip featuring knurled bead seats.
- Painted in an exclusive Octane Red paint, the Brembo brake package with six-piston front calipers/four-piston rear gets a new look.
- Two exterior paint choices include Pitch Black or White Knuckle
- Styling-wise, the Octane Edition definitely stands out with full-length black centre stripe paired to red accent tracers on each edge.
- Staying with the black everything theme, the car gets complete black exterior badging, including the grille, decklid and fender badges. In the back, the decklid spoiler is Satin Black.
- The seating setup gets a big boost — a Charger SRT Hellcat first with SRT Performance seats with Houndstooth insert, SRT Hellcat logo stitched into the seat back and red accent stitching.
- Throughout the cabin, expect red stitching for a little contrast.
- Driver front and centre, a black-on-black SRT Hellcat instrument panel badge
- No typical seat belts here — they’re red. Right on.
- Gloss black interior accents and Dark Brushed II instrument panel and console bezels to round things out inside.
